This is the truth: After she freaked out, Ginny (my mom) tried to calm her down, while I found a pumpkin that I would like if I were 2, and then pulled it off the vine. She calmed down when I yelled "Oww," because a pricker got me . . . and then she started laughing. And when the tractor came back, she got on the wagon and then didn't want to get off. Someone else handed her down to me.
Stitching wise, I've had a few small hauls. I went to HL and kitted up a bunch of projects. I bought 125 skeins of floss--I felt like a glutton. And, to celebrate paying off my car finally, I placed an order with 123stitch for the beads and threads for my two Mirabilias. I still have to order the fabric for Christmas Elegance, but I have everything for Mother's Arms. I am almost ready for the Panting to Stitch SAL.
And then came Saturday. It was a great day! My husband's cousin gave me a box set of Harry Potter hardbacks in a trunk. Even Kaydence gasped when we opened it! I have all the books in paperback, but having them in hardback as well, in such a beautiful way, it adds to my collection. But that wasn't all that was there.
There was an envelope from my Christmas in July partner. She had spoiled me so much in July, and she sent me an extra envelope that came this month. In it was a bunch more stuff from my 123 Wishlist. Katie was entranced!
Val sent me:

It was a lovely gift and I am very touched.

Hope you all are enjoying the season.
