Bell Ringer

 I thought you might like to see the Salvation Army bell ringer that greeted me at the Post Office Saturday. I should have snapped the picture on the way in because she was holding a bell in her mouth and nodding her head to ring it!   Her name is Libby and she's no bigger than a large dog. Too cute!  She seemed to be very successful in collecting donations!  She reminds me of the little pony I had when I was growing up.
I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving.  Our gathering was smaller than usual but we all did our part to consume the turkey an all the trimmings.  I am pretty sure no one was hungry when they left!  And, just a few hours later we felt obliged to tackle the leftovers! 
We continue to receive new designs at the shop.  The latest Shepherd's Bush kits arrived Saturday.  They are all nice but we especially like the little pre-made stockings.  You just do a quick stitch on the attached band and you have a perfect way to present a gift card or other small treasure.  We should have pictures on our website in the next couple of days.  The next update is "in the works". 
If you have something that you want to have framed for Christmas, you need to get it to us NOW!  We are framing as fast as we can and we do not want anyone to be disappointed.
I need to pay some bills so I'd better stop playing with Blogger!
Happy stitching,
