Shortly after arriving at Carmen's house we headed straight to Hobby Lobby for our supplies...well after she fed us a delicious meal. And to think she called it "leftovers". If all my leftovers were that good there wouldn't be any left over!

Carmen showed me the lacing method so we picked up some mat board.

She didn't warn me that my thumb would be so sore from all the pinning! It didn't help that my right thumb was already ouchy because my hands are so dry.

|I needed a little help|
I wasn't the only one receiving help....
I'm not real good with names, human or animal, so I can't tell you this sweet kitty's name but she was adorable!
The next morning I had to grab my camera for yet another kitty antic. Remember folks, I do not have any pets so I found all of this very amusing.
I have a tendency to be slightly...well I don't know the word for it. Masterchief says I'm not what he would call OCD but I can be "particular" on occasion. So, when we were nearing the final placing of the stitched piece behind glass I became nervous.
Almost done...we cut the spacers, cut the pieces for the back of each frame and slapped them together with nary a cat hair in sight!

|The two Red Border Study's and Winter Row|
Here are the two Red Border Study's by Heron House Designs on the wall. We thought this was the best place for them.
We have yet to hang the other pieces but when we do I'll be sure to take a pic for ya.
I held a ruler under it so you can see just how small this is. It's only 2 inches wide. Carmen stuffed it with lavender. I have it hanging in the kitchen right now and every time I walk by I get a whiff of lavender. Thank you Carmen! Here is a link to her BLOG.
Thanks for hanging in there with me on this long post. I wanted to post about all this yesterday but I have to be in the right frame of mind to sit down and do it and that doesn't happen very often.
I hope your Christmas was a very happy and memorable one. I can honestly tell you I don't care if I eat or even see another cookie until next Christmas!
A very Happy New Year to all of you, dear friends. Be well and be safe.....
