This post is full of lots of things, stitching, family, stash purchases, movies, books.

First up is stash purchases.  I purchased these two boxes at AC Moore not too long ago, one to hold my scrapbooking supplies and one for cross stitch fabric.  I love them both and they were both about $10 each.

Next up, stitching!  I started working on Glory Bee's ornament from the 2003 JCS ornament issue.  I am using all different threads and fabric than listed in the pattern.  When I post a pic of the finished product I will list the fabric and floss I used.

And, finally, family pics.  I was over my mother's Sunday evening for the Pittsburgh Steelers v. Baltimore Ravens game, and my sister was donning her usual silliness.

Yes, that is a ninja vest on from her Halloween costume and she has a lacrosse stick stuck in the back of it!!!  LOL.

This is actually a pair of 3-D glasses and the thing she is holding shines pictures of fireworks on the wall, and the glasses make them look 3-D.  It was really cool!!!

And this one we laughed forever about.  Those things on her eyes are sticky eyeballs that will crawl down a wall.  The things people come up with!!

And other little tidbits, I am reading The Night Strangers by Chris Bohjalian.  A creepy and disturbing book.  I love it!!  I only have about 40 pages to go, so I will finish tonight.  If you would like to be my friend on Goodreads, go here

And have any of you seen the preview for the movie The Sessions, starring Helen Hunt?  It is about a guy that has been in an iron lung for most of his life due to polio he had as a kid, and he wants to lose his virginity, so he hires a sex therapist, Helen Hunt.  The movie looks funny and touching.  Definitely a must see!!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!  Today I will be watching my favorite Thanksgiving movie, Home For The Holidays, and of course A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving!!

Until next time...

One can never have enough boxes for stash and stuff!

Looks like you had fun with your sister, might have to look into the 3-D item.

I love stash of stash organization! I made my boyfriend buy us a coffee table with a rolltop and drawers so I could hide all my stitchy stuff inside without the place looking cluttered.

Also, I just added you to my goodreads page. Hope that's ok! I don't get much reading done these days due to grad school, but I do what I can!
