A Time…

to give thanks. For all we have, family, friends, my AlleyCat, stitching and so much more.

This picture of said cat was just of several that I was able to capture that day as she was… and to this day I’m still not sure what she was up to? She started at one end of the table and worked her way down, all the while never trying to jump up on the table!

Another to add to be thankful for list, is all of you who come in the shop and comment about my blog, or lack there of. I have great intentions, but I really do work way too many hours and just run out of time! Speaking of blog reading, have you discovered Jonathan’s blog yet? https://jonathansembroidery.blogspot.com He attends ANG seminar with his lovely wife JaneBeth mostly when it’s being held on East Coast or even Midwest. It’s a long flight from Scotland! I’m envious as he was able to see the amazing collection of samplers from the Leslie Durst collection at one of the museums in Scotland.

What are your plans for Thanksgiving? For those of you have followed me for years, know that I normally go to Missy’s for the big holiday bake-off…but not this year. I’m headed elsewhere to combine Thanksgiving and celebrating Betty’s 100th birthday! Yes! She’s sharp, still stitches and lives by herself in her own home…now if that’s not something to be thankful for, I don’t know what is! If you get Needlepoint Now …and why wouldn’t you? Make sure you read Elizabeth’s “Musings” which is all about Betty.

I guess I’ve rambled on enough and I need to get moving as I have lots to do before I come home to start packing!

I usually bring these used bags home from the shop for recycling… do you think she counts as that? Only kidding! Happy Thanksgiving to you!

About Vicky

Needlepoint, morning noon and evening! what could be better than this? I work on the computer in the daylight hours editing stitch guides and drawing stitches that you will see in the next Needlepoint Now for your stitching pleasure! In between this, there is time for taking pictures of my stitching adventures, Facebook and writing stitch guides for canvas that I am stitching for Needle Deeva, Maggie, Ruth Schmuff and others. Mostly needlepoint you ask? well we will talk about my cats Sylvester and AlleyCat, better known as "the brat". Of course I can't forget Felix who was the love of my life for over 14 years. He broke my heart as he departed for the Rainbow Bridge last year. Oh did I mention baseball?

  1. Vicky, Have a happy celebration with your 100-year old friend…amazing! Is AlleyCat having Thanksgiving dinner, too? One of the foods I feed my cats is canned Merrick Thanksgiving Day Dinner.

  2. Like you Vicky, I have so many things to be thankful for, the list is a mile long. This year I have to include my World champion Boston Red Sox to the list. So good to hear from you and see Alleycat. Enjoy your Thanksgiving and the celebration of Betty’s 100th birthday. WOW!

    • Yes your Red Sox sure had a heck of a year! Wow! Happy Thanksgiving to you too! I told Elizabeth 2 or 3 years ago that I would be there for her 100th…we should all be so lucky.
