My Saturday ventures

Here's our chairs we watch TV in at night. We share the ottoman and stay connected. ;)

Fixed Mexican for dinner

Found this basket today. I love it. It was on sale half off, I'm not sure why, in a primitive store that I so dearly love. It just struck me to hang this way for some cross stitch pillowkeeps. Hope it doesn't fall on Body Guard's is barely hanging on the wall......but I did warn him LOL

waiting for my honey to come home from some traveling and chores, dirty chores at that.

just had to throw in a pic I've had for years. Right in our foyer.

Oh, lookie who came home! Nice and tired! LOL This could make a Tide commercial!

I took off my boots, ones I"ve had for 13 years. Wore them today and felt all "countryfied!!!"

Built a fire to greet my hubbie.

Found this fat quarter in a new quilt shop I had not explored.

I'm itching to do Christmas stuff and ornies now. This is kinda big. May make a stocking. I was really loving the blue in this piece. Sort of Dutchy to me.
Put my scraps and fat quarters from today's shopping at the quilt store in my basket.

Lovely mail today........Received my Tudor Rose scissors from The Sampler Girl
and an ornie to put on the Christmas tree with a small pattern for another ornie. I picked out the Wish one. I can't tell you my wish now, but I will think about it every time I see it on the tree.
Nice weather today. Sunny with the peak of leaf color. I'm looking forward to some stitching tonight.
