Second November Post! (or What is the World Coming To?!)

Hello all my faithful readers!  Yes, you heard right!  A SECOND post for the month of November!  I just had some things to share!  So here they are!


I finished the Biscornu for my Mom!  I gave it to her a couple days after her Birthday, but she was very happy with it!  It is a Papillon Creations freebie, called Love Letters!  I modified it slightly, as I cut my fabric a teensie bit too small!  Oh well, all well that ends well!  I used some Perle cotton 80 that I bought on sale and because I liked the colours!

 This is the Birthday card I made for Mom!
This one is for my "nephew" Korbin, for his first birthday party!  I think they both turned out rather well!  Now I have to make my Christmas cards!!
This was the Exchange I participated in for the first Birthday celebration of The Stitch Specialist's Yahoo group!  Rae sent all these lovely things to stitch and fondle!  lol!  I can't wait to play with all the new stuff!  Thanks again, Rae!  It was so worth the wait!!
Here is my ornie for my Ornament a Month SAL!  It is freebie from Daffy Cat's blog called "Snow Hop"!  How did she know I have a thing for birds, let alone fat little cardinals?!  It was like she was reading my mind!!  lol!  Speaking of Daffy Cat, I also joined her TUSAL for 2012!  I can't wait!  I added the New Moon dates into my calendar and set reminders for myself!  Now I just need to find a pretty ort jar!

I am bitterly disappointed in the weatherman!  We had snow a week ago!  I am sooo not a fan of winter!  Admittedly, the snow didn't stick around, but I did wake up to it!  I know it's not much, but why?!  Oh well, it gives me more time to stitch!

I saw a hawk yesterday morning!  So I changed lenses in my camera and managed to snap a couple pictures! I'll have you know I braved the cold in my pj's and slippers to get these shots!  Oh maybe I shouldn't share that I was still in my jammies!  Please disregard last statement!  lol!  As he took off flying I heard him scream which was really cool!  The only downside is that I didn't see any other birds for a while!  And I was kinda worried about him trying to snatch our kitty Chloe, but I'm pretty sure she would have won!  She's pretty spicy!!
DD and I are so excited today!!  We are hitting the theatre tonight to watch the new Twilight Saga movie, Breaking Dawn Part 1!  Will let you know how it is!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!  Chat soon!

Lovely gift and card you made for your mom.

I absolutely believe that adding the jammies to the picture taking and your stash and fondles add character. Thanks for laugh...
