Your thread glide like silk,
And your stitching friendships last forever!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers!
Today's photo is of a finish from a few years ago, and is called Happy Thanksgiving by Sue Hillis. The was the very first time I ever used something other than DMC and I remember being very confused. The leaves on the tree are done with Caron Watercolors Wild Fire. I remember wondering how just one color floss could produce such colorful leaves on the tree, but once I found the floss, I saw how highly variegated it is. It was such fun to stitch with, I couldn't wait to use variegated floss again.
The Choo Choo Restaurant in Des Plaines IL is right down the street from the very first McDonalds. For generations, it has been delighting young and old alike. Children love to sit at the counter or end booths and watch as the train delivers their meal. There is usually quite a wait for a seat at the counter even in colder weather. You can read about the restaurant and it's history at Save the Choo Choo.
The City of Des Plaines would like to tear it down to build a new police station . If you are so inclined, please sign the petion on the Save the Choo Choo web site, you can find it by clicking the link above.
I sent some socks to Loni. I was quite conservative compared to everyone else, but I did manage to find some stitching themed socks!
Thank you, Sue, for the really wild socks to keep my feet warm! And Loni, I hope you enjoy your socks, too.
