Woo hoo! I finished the bottom border on the Winter Patchwork sampler. It went fast. I suppose it's because it's a mirror image so you can stitch two things at one time. I like that. There's a lot less fiddling with floss.
Speaking of fiddling with floss...the Christmas Quaker is now this big. I LOVE stitching with just one color. I am going to have a very hard time putting this away when the season is over. Maybe I won't. It doesn't really scream Christmas to me.
As for the kitchen, yesterday we organized critter food. I've got piles and piles of it all over the house. It's been hard to come by so I've been hoarding it when I can get it. Seven hungry kitties is not a pretty sight and that supply issue is worrisome.
Ta da....the last of the pantry shelves are in and filled. All with critter food. Just think of all the room I would have had for people food-although we just took 4 big bags of pantry items to the food bank yesterday so I think I'm okay in that department too for now. Other than rice, pasta, beans and canned tomatoes we don't eat much pantry type food.
And.....in case you were wondering what happened with that gingerbread cookie kit. Well...I certainly don't have the patience or talent DIL has for cookie decorating-but they were good and I suppose that's what counts.
