A Finish, Santa, fall break, life

My Mirabilia obsession continues. I recently finished Mediterranean Mermaid.

PTP Sterling 32 ct. 

On Tuesday, I started Santa (also a Mirabilia) design. I love his expression and the ornate cuffs on his jacket. I also love that this one does not use any Kreinik threads. I love the look metallic threads give a design but I don't enjoy stitching with them.

We celebrated fall break Disney style once again this year. My parents joined us for this trip and it was wonderful. One of the best trips ever. I wasn't ready to come home.

We also celebrated my husband's induction into his alma mater's Athletic Hall of Fame. It was a fun weekend. My husband was humbled and honored and we are so proud of him.

I hope all is well for you in blog land. Sorry it has been so long since my last post. Between work and busy home life, I have chosen to stitch or knit in the spare moments that I have had these last few months. My blog reader is busting at the seams. I'm hoping the pace slows down a bit and I can catch up in all areas.

Until next time, happy stitching!

And a belated Happy Halloween from the Pete-ster!
