Lost again!

Just where did this week go? Somehow I have breezed through and not sure what or where! I have accomplished a few things....
I have since stitched even more on my Hawaiian block....all the leaves are done and soon to start the flowers.
I am enjoying the hand stitching...love to hand stitch. I found 2 patterns: one for a February design (my birth month) and one for a December design (Mr H's month) and hope to work on them next.  I started the gold trim for the center of my Dresden wreath...and it looks just as I wanted. All in all, the quilting projects are moving along.  I finally finished the Angel...
Love the wild hair! I just decided this morning at 3 AM....did I mention that I have been up since 2 AM! to add a trim to the wings along the edge.  Twice I have taken out Alice...oh I must wait until I get a few things finished first!  My Christmas packages to be mailed are almost ready...They will go out early!!!
Two new additions to my house this week... first this pretty little bird..
I will love having him with my Christmas decorations. I miss having Cardinals around. Back in Rhode Island they visited our feeders all year. He is ceramic and the bit of glitter catches the light on his chest. Then I also just had to have ...
I saw the dragonfly and into my hands it flew. Tea seems to taste special in it. I love tea cups as you may know so this is another addition that I have been actually using.  Can you believe that this Thursday is Thanksgiving? With that in mind, it means that December is just around the corner.....this has been a fast year. I asked Mr H to cut me a piece of wood to cover and slightly enlarge a table for me to put out my Christmas village this year. This will be instead of using the mantle which I have other decorating plans for. So, I will be pulling down from the garage storage cupboards the house soon and it will begin to look festive around her. I think I will go and curl up on the daybed in the sewing/guest room....it is a bit after 4 AM ....I hope to take a little nap before starting the day. It has been nice having you visit with me. Thank you so much for your friendship and kind words...enjoy your day.

Hi, Grace! Love your angel and the cardinal. If you would have passed up the teacup and saucer, I would have been very disappointed.

Your angel made me smile big this morning. :D
Cardinals are special, aren't they? The sparkley touch is great!

Your angel is so cute. She got her wild hair from flying! You are definitely an early riser. The Cardinal is very pretty. I like how you buy items to remind of former places you lived. As a life long Arizonan, I can't do that! Happy Thanksgiving to you and Mr. H!

Love your wild-haired angel! Nice purchases too. I think you have inspired my Advent Calendar question this year.
You must show us a photo of the new enlarged Christmas Village too.

I love your new cup and saucer, very eye catching. The angel is adorable and the wing trim is a great touch. The cardinal will be a nice bright touch to your tree.
