Rolling Into November

 Hi friends! I thought I would show you my 🦃November Cubby Shelf Display🦃

These are all stitched over one. Except the little November pillow on top. The chrysanthemum wreath in the center bottom may be my favorite wreath from the Trésors de boîtes à couture series. It is stitched one over one on 25 count Zweigart white Dublin linen.

🦃🍁November Corner Shelf🍁🦃

🌹Every Good & Perfect Gift by My Big Toe Designs🌹 

This pattern is found on page 11 of JCS Christmas Ornaments Issue 2021. I stitched it with the called for DMC, except I used 936 instead of 935. I thought the green was too dark. This matches the picture now. I stitched it on ivory 32ct linen two over two as called for so it would fit in the exact same frame used in the magazine, which I purchased from my Hobby Lobby at 50% off. 😊 This is Jacob and Kristen's Christmas ornament for this year. 💞

I finished secret Christmas gift stitching for a longtime blog friend. I need to make it into an ornament now. 😊 I have started a Bent Creek Thanksgiving piece. 🦃

We got our flu shots this week. Do you get the flu shot? We are getting our COVID booster today. Did you get yours? Are you going to?

📚In 1941, after a drastic mistake at a London hospital, nurse trainee Bridget Kelly has been compelled to take a position to care for 10 young evacuated children who are being sent to Greenway House in Devon which also happens to be Agatha Christie’s holiday estate. The other nurse arrives late, and also happens to be named Bridget Kelly. She appears to take her position lightly and with indifference. There are unexplained deaths in town, and Bridget slowly figures the strange mysteries out. Ten children really did stay at Greenway. The author interviewed one of them and used her information throughout the book. At the end of the war, she thought her biological parents were adoptee parents as she didn’t know them.

In Him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will  Ephesians 1:11

Thanks for stopping by today my friends! I am so glad you did. Your comments brighten my day. I hope you have a fantastic weekend! Take care now.

Stitching and praying,

I think it's wonderful how you change out your printers box and corner shelf monthly and how you add to them. Always so nice to see. Love the ornament and finishing tag that you completed for Jacob. Yes, I got my flu and Shingles shot and will get the booster. I'm spacing them all 2 weeks apart.

I love your Cubby Shelf, I used to have one with small figures, but it hasn't been on my wall for many years.
Your corner shelf is also beautifully decorated, I like it very much.
Have a good time, Hugs Martina

Vickie: You shelf is lovely, I see you only have three empty spaces, I am looking forward to seeing what you put in them.
I love your mice I have a few Annalee dolls, I find them at thrift stores, they are so sweet.
I agree with Mary that your corner shelf always looks so sweet.
We did not get the covid shots not enough testing has been done for me to get them, flu shot every year on my birthday.
Have a lovely day

Always nice to see your changed up shelf and cubby each month, Vickie. I really need to stitch that cute T Is For Turkey design. I have the chart, just haven't found the time!

Yep--got my flu shot a month ago and will get my Covid booster on Wednesday. Hoping for no bad reactions :)

Georgia said...

Oh Vickie, your posts always brighten my day. I love the little James 1 ornament, I remember seeing it in the magazine, and have been so busy I forgot all about it. Thank you for jogging my memory:) I hope you are feeling better, and please know you are on my heart and in my prayers:)

Your monthly cubby photos are always a delight! The little wreath is very pretty. I like this year's Ornament too. It is nice that you could get the frame.
I'm due my flu jab this Friday and my Covid booster the first week in December. We have to wait six months after the second jab to get the booster. I think it's going to become the norm to get both jabs each year. We are so lucky to have the ability to fight these viruses, the scientists have done an amazing job!
