Hidey Ho Neighbors! Here is is Tuesday and the day before I'm supposed to have 6 people ready to travel for the rest of the week....not to mention that I have a stack of finishing I MUST get done today! So time is short.....*as always* and for most of you too, I'm sure :)

Well I received my lovely squares from the latest Fair and Square Round from sweet Milly. Milly and I became acquainted when I joined her LHN/CCH Yahoo group and she's a fantastic lady. She's also a model stitcher for Diane and everyone's friend and neighbor!

Squares from Milly

And Lindsay of the Caring Stitcher Blog held a contest and I won these delightful scissors (one more for my board!) and then she sent this lovely beaded snowflake ornament along too...it is totally gorgeous and I don't know how she did it, but I love it and it shall have a place of honor on our tree (really soon!). Thank you Lindsay! You are a sweet heart and I love, love, love the scissors and ornament!

I guess that does it for me today....like I said...LOADS of finishing, even more LOADS of laundry, gotta fit in some stitching somewhere...then it will be on to some packing for our road trip. I also have to apologize for not being a more frequent visitor and commenter on everyone's blogs. I have been working, volunteering at my kids school and dozen other things....I've saved everyone's posts in my reader and I am hoping to get a few moments to go through some of them soon. So don't think I'm ignoring you, I just am playing "catch up" on a lot of things!

Until next time.....stitch til you're little heart is content!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving Vonna!

  2. what sweet squares!

  3. Vonna,
    You bring back such good memories with three words "hidey ho neighbor"! I can't tell you how much we all loved that show (still do) and hated to see it go! What happened to the days of family sitcoms everyone could enjoy? Ah well. Your exchange and gifts are beautiful. I'm truly impressed with the snowflake & would love to know how to do that! Is it stiff or more flexible? Just lovely! Good luck with all the work to do and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  13. Milly's squares look nice. Hope you have a safe trip and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  14. I'm glad they arrived safely and the snowflake looks like it made it in one piece, if it starts to go floppy paint it with clear nail varnish or watered down PVA.

    Love the sqaures

    Happy a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  20. Lovely squares, scissors and ornament. Have a lovely holiday and a great Thanksgiving!

  21. What lovely squares to get, and the scissors and snowflake are delightful as well. Good luck getting everything done that you have on your list, it sounds like you're going to be quite busy. Hope your Thanksgiving was delicious and safe. BTW, I tagged you for the 6 things about me list. However, those go around so often it is hard to track who all has been tagged, so if you've already been tagged please ignore it.

  22. Oh Vonna, I have a job keeping up with blogs and I only have me and hubby to look after.
