The perfect house

I went to Michael's yesterday to get some stitching supplies and a couple of things for a tree topper that I want to make into a tree topper.  I have been doing some looking on pinterest and various places and saw that Christmas picks are an interesting way to top your trees.  I have been struggling for years with the top of my Stitching Tree and this year I have decided to decorate it with picks.  They were on for 50% off, plus there was a coupon for an additional 25% off your entire purchase including sales items, so off I went!  I pick up some great picks so we'll see how effective I can be with them come time to use them! 

Then I was looking at this year's new Lemax pieces and I found the perfect one!!!  This one too 40% please the additional 25% so I got it!  Do you see what it is???  It's a needleshop!!!! How perfect!!!  I can hardly wait to see it on main street in my village.

This morning was the new release of the Mystery sampler from Plum Street Samplers.  More star, a flower and Mary's heart.  Love it!  This one took a better part of the day, but it's done and I'm looking forward to next week's section. 

It's a holiday here tomorrow, Remembrance day, where we take the day to honour and remember our forces that so courageously served and still serve our country.
