The joys of being sick and an exchange

I am way behind on blog reading due to being sick, working and the holiday madness!!

Hope everyone had wonderful Thanksgiving - it was a nice day here, a bit too warm, but we had good company and a nice dinner. The fall and Thanksgiving decor is put away and 3 of the 4 trees are up and a small portion of the Christmas decorations are out. We are not going out all the way with our decorations this year - working, though only part time, really does a job on time availability!!!

DH, DD and I have been dealing with terrible cold and flu issues - DD being the worst, but after 2 1/2 weeks, I am still stuffy and coughing!! it is really draining.

I took part in a quick exchange of BBD stockings - below is what I received. It is so appropriate since DH and I traveled to Paris this past summer.
This is what I stitched and sent along. Knowing that I would be done before Thanksgiving and I just love this turkey - I decided this would be a fun stitch to do and send.These little stockings are just the greatest quick stitch and the finishing is pretty simple. I like putting a ribbon for a hanger vs the beads.

Hope you all are doing well and thank you for stopping by. ---- Roberta

I hope you feel better soon. That cold/flu stuff is going around at my office and it seems to be taking everyone 2-3 weeks to get over it. Your stockings look wonderful.

Hi, Roberta! Sorry to hear you have been sick - hope you are well soon. I love the little turkey stocking! And you are right, it has been too warm here lately.

I hope that you're feeling better soon. My daughter has something similar and just can't seems to shake it. She'd be happy if I had let her stay home the past couple weeks. Just love both of those stockings.

It was warm for Thanksgiving, but do you have the same chilly weather we do now Roberta? I love it this time of year!

Both of the stockings are so pretty! How can you go wrong with these as a gift - given and received.
