It's a two steppin' kind a day!

Yep, that's right.  I am dancing...not just for one finish..but two! 

Elizabeth is done in all of her mouthless glory!  I love her!  The picture doesn't do her any well all know...known of our stitched offerings look as fabulous as the do in person..try as we might.  But the colours are a gorgeous compliment to each other.  The dress took almost three whole days of stitching to do.  It was very misleading...but it's done and it's great and I love her hair and everything about her.  Next up will be the next girl in the CHS series.  We have decided on Mary Margaret, whom you can see in my side bar.  Not sure if we're starting her next Sunday or the Sunday after, but progress will be posted as we move along.

On Saturday I stitched up Jaxon's first ornie!  YEAH!!!  I think it turned out so cute.  My SIL - Judy - aka Gramma is stitching Jaxon's stocking, and I plucked this out of the design, so that he would have a matching ornament for his first Christmas. :)  I love how he turned out.  I shall post the stocking when Judy is finished with it. :)

We had a houseful of people yesterday.  Family gathered for our Canadian Thanksgiving.  The food was wonderful, everyone was in good spirits, and Jaxon learned how to slap the table to order himself a drink at the bar, should he ever be in need of a refreshment.  VERY CUTE!  Lulu was also on her best behaviour and in all her glory as there were many hands to pet and cuddle her. 

Did I mention that Lulu actually smiles??  LOL

Elizabeth is gorgeous! Well done! I look forward to watching your Mary Margaret grow in the future.

I love the little penguin ornie, he just looks so cute and happy. What a wonderful idea to make the ornament one that will match the stocking also, they'll make a great set!

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

What an adorable picture of Lu-lu smiling, just precious. :)
