This is my first International Hermit and Stitch Weekend (IHSW), and I'm really looking forward to it. As if I needed an excuse to shut out the world and stitch. :o) It's a little cool and cloudy this morning, but we are supposed to have a nice afternoon. I may even take my hermitting outside for a while. :o)
I'm working on my grove of Christmas trees that I volunteered to make as happies for our office Christmas party. At my office, we have a "Gift Fund" that you can be a part of if you want to participate in birthdays, sending flowers for illnesses, and the Christmas party, and I am on the committee that plans all that this year. I thought it would be nice to have a better happy for the Christmas party than some cheap little thing from the dollar store, so I showed my fellow committee members a little handmade Christmas tree to see if they liked it. And they did, so I committed myself to making 40 of them. But they are really fun to make. I have 12 beaded so far. Here is my grove this morning.
I will be working hard on my trees this weekend. When finished, they will be on little stands and be about 6 or 7 inches tall. DH is helping me with the stands. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I will have a finished one to share!
We had our office sponsered Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. Everyone who wanted to participate brought a dish or contributed to the turkey. Then we brought our food back to our desks to eat. I eat with my office buddies in one of my friend's cubicles because she has a work table in her cube. I decided we should be festive, and her favortie color is pink, so I decorated our dinner table. :o)
And here we are enjoying our Thanksgiving dinner together. That's me on the right.
I am very thankful for these ladies, as they are good friends and make work a lot of fun! :o)
Happy IHSW everyone!
