Hi everyone,

There are important numerical milestones in life...

1.  The number of shingles you have finished on your Halloween House Roof...81- 106...(I have read all kinds of numbers on the internet)
2.  The distance at the  Belmont Stakes....  1.5 miles
3.  The Train Platform number at Kings Cross Station in Harry Potter... 9 3/4
4.  The age at when you can first vote...18

and then tah dah...the first time your puppy sleeps through to 6:30 am!! and you did not have to get up in the middle of the night and stand in wet grass!!

Here is a photo of my Candyland trees.  I am working on the snow in spurts because the thread, Crystal Braid is a "shredder" and frustrating.  I also need to redo the pink sequins on the middle tree because they are loose - may have to add a dab of glue to the back.

Puppy training is challenging.  It's two steps forward and one step back.  If you have small children around you know that it's not the toys, it's the CONTAINER that's the best part.  You just hope they don't swallow something that's not digestible!

Have a great stitching weekend,



  1. I can't believe you are working on Thanksgiving House and Rebeccah! No wonder you are stitching Candyland. LOL You are going to have a beautiful Thanksgiving when all is done.

  2. OMG no I am not stitching the house! But I am watching it being stitched. I may skip the Indian Brave and go straight to the Pilgrim once I get back to Elegant Thanksgiving. But I'm not there yet - that's a project that requires you to stitch a few hours at a time - and I am happy to sleep that long!
