Some more Pinterest

Let me preface this latest entry:  I had very little sleep last night.  Probably less than 3 hours.  My mind was racing all night and would not quiet down enough for me to fall asleep. Follow that up with a very long day at work where I traveled to another city an hour away for some convention planning.  I am one tired girl! So I apologize if anything I type doesn't make sense.

My friends and I have delved straight into the latest craze called Pinterest.  This past Friday, my friend hosted a baby shower for another one of our friends.  Once again it was inspired by ideas found on Pinterest.  The decorations, some of the foods and favors.  We love our Pinterest!

 Pumpkins made from burlap!

Pumpkin seeds as favors!

 The tablecloth was made out of a drop cloth!

I made the guest of honor two presents.  One was a bib with her baby's initials cross stitched on it with a monkey alphabet.  I unfortunately forgot to take a picture of it.  The second was a hooded towel.  I love the colors in it! The picture is kind of dark but I was in a hurry when I took the picture.

As I stated before I have been doing some stitching.  I had been working on Mirabilia's The Kiss.  I've worked on it off and on for the last few weeks.  I made some good progress on it. Sorry for the hoop ring, I'm bad at remembering to remove the hoop each night after I am done stitching. 

I've put the above project away to focus on another project.  I'm back to stitching on my sister's Christmas stocking.  Will I finish it?  Who knows.  There are only 3 more weekends of football left and that is when I tend to get a ton of my stitching done. It calms me down especially since my Tigers are on the path to the National Championship! However, I do have Thanksgiving to stitch all that I want.  My parents are going to spend the holiday with my sister so I shall be home alone.  So Duke and I will have a little celebration of our own and I will rest up for shopping on Black Friday. 

I've only had one experience with Black Friday and the best part of it was the breakfast at a local restaurant called Frank's (the best biscuits in town!).  This year I have been invited by my friend Jenny, who is a SERIOUS Black Friday shopper.  She's already given me a list of items that I will need for a successful shopping trip. All our ads with the items we want circled, walkie talkies (couldn't we just use our cell phones?), a back pack, and dress in layers as the day will start cold and the stores will get hot.  I obviously have no clue what I am getting my self into!  We shall see how it goes!

My daughter also introduced me to pinning. I have the Kiss started and it is hiding somewhere amongst all the other UFO.
