Well, for the first time ever, we had critters visit the garden & guess what they liked.....yup..you guessed it...my popcorn...As soon as the ears started growing, they started 'disappearing'.. I found tracks to two different critters around the stalks.....we had raccoons loving my popcorn & also deer.....
They missed 2 ears, so I did get to at least try my popcorn....ha!!!! You can see in the pictures the ears, the amount unpopped & then the end result, which tasted WONDERFUL last night!!!!
Stitching this weekend was a lot of fun.....I had 2 of my stitching friends over for the day on Sat...we had our own private little Stitch In.. One gal almost finished what she was working on. I got word later that evening that she had finished... The other gal did a little stocking border...those premade stockings that you add stitching to the band around the top. She started & finished it while here. I worked on an ornament for my nephew & his wife. They are expecting baby #2 in Feb. I thought this ornament would be a perfect gift. They know the baby is a girl, so I changed the one color to pink. This ornament was done with a variety of flosses. I didn't have the called for flosses, so I went on a hunt thru my hand dyed flosses. I used some dmc (310) some Carries, some Dye is Cast & some San Man Strands... The fabric is Sassy's Crocus..the picture does not do the fabric or the flosses justice..that is what I get for taking a picture while it is still dark out..bad lighting!
today I need to find a Disney themed pattern for an ornament for an exchange....may be harder than I thought!
