Poor Sabrina :o(

She has been SO neglected lately. I 'really' have my doubts that she's going to be done by the end of this year :o( Here she is as of yesterday -

I couldn't help but stitch the hem in her dress ;o) I was so unsure when I first saw the colour combination but I love it! I'm glad I decided not to change anything.

DH and I are going to visit our parents for Thanksgiving so at home she stays :o( At least I have a travel project but I'll keep that secret until I get home. Hee, hee!

I DO have a few other things that I will share with you though. Tina was a sweetheart and sent me Autumn Row by Bent Creek -

Don't you just love the donkey card? :o) I'm picking up the material for it later today so I'll have it on hand. It's going to be a cute project. Thank you again Tina!

My dear friend Harmien surprised me with another sample of her wonderful stitching -

Isn't this stocking just darling???? I love the antique bell that she attached. Thank you so much Harmien! You know it will be treasured :o)

Cathey, Your Sabrina is lovely!
A friend just completed her and it's absolutely beautiful. One of those one "big" project for the year. Yours will be just as beautiful!
I love the BC "Rows" they're fun and quick to stitch.

Your are so welcome. :) Sabrina is absolutely beautiful, she doesn't look to neglected....not as neglected as my moose lol....Keep on stitching!

Watch out, Cathey! Sabrina doesn't look like the type who enjoys being ignored :)

She is really lovely and I think her dress is exquisite...

Hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful! Wish the U.S. holiday was earlier like the Canadian one--travel can sometimes be difficult in late November. And now just seems like such a gorgeous time of year to be thankful :)
