Two Things I'm Grateful For
1. Sales and coupons at Joanns. I bought some Deborah Norville Serenity yarn for another Cozy Comfort Prayer Shawl (on sale for $2.99 each), DMC floss and aida fabric for the Super Duper Ultimate Crazy Challenge (floss on sale for $0.33 each plus a 20% coupon, fabric 40% off with coupons) and fabric for a church project (25% off cut fabric, 50% remnants).
2. Christmas cards from friends and family. We live in the age of technology. So few people mail cards anymore; I cherish each one I get.
We found a new park to explore this past weekend. It's in Oak Cliff near Dallas.
Tim did some fishing. He caught the exotic weed fish.
Hope sat on the pond bank and worked on her landscape drawing skills.
I crocheted and entertained Alex.
I love all the colors of the leaves this time of year :-)
On the way to dinner, we passed over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. I love the architecture.
After dinner, we drove through neighborhoods to look at Christmas lights. There were some spectacular displays. This is definitely something you'd find in Texas, a western Santa with longhorns.
With the exception of Tim fighting a bad sinus infection off an on (he's much better today), it was a good weekend.
Joy is spending a day with my family.
Weekends Are For...
Weekends are for relaxing with a favorite hobby.
I worked a little more on my doily but didn't get any cross stitching done.
Starting the day curled up under a blanket with that first cup of coffee
(and second, and third...)
Hope loves making these stocking hat decorations every Christmas.
Thanks for reading and looking.
