I decided I could not live without this wool appliqued Merry Christmas banner and bought that along with a wool appliqued case for my glasses. (I have not worked much with wool but it's on the list. . . )
I love Christmas greeting signs and am sure that Karen made this especially with me in mind, LOL. How did she know??

I haven't started decorating for Christmas yet but think I will hang it above the doorway from the front hall to the living room.
This black frame is the perfect size to show off a small, primitive appliqued quilt I'm working on (no, not wool).
(FYI - Karen said this case is made from a Kim Diehl pattern.)
It also works as a case for your rotary cutter.
On the way home we stopped at a couple of local shops, avoiding the big malls and the crowds. I hate shopping on Black Friday but the crowds were not too bad at a few of the small malls we went to and I was able to pick up a few stocking stuffers for my daughter, including this adorable coffee/tea travel mug with pink dog bones on it, so sweet.
(Don't worry about me spoiling the surprise. I'm pretty sure my daughter would not be caught dead looking at my blog, LOL . . .)
We also stopped at PetSmart but I could NOT find a battery-operated crazy ball for the dog, darn it. We used to have one for the other dog and it broke. My kids are grown and there are no small children in the family so I have to get my Christmas jollies buying toys for the dog, how sad is that?
Please, please won't you buy me a new toy for Christmas? "Sheepie" is starting to get a little ratty looking . . . . By the way, speaking of ratty, I could use a haircut too.
I was sooo tired when I got home (the three days of cooking, cleaning and entertaining for Thanksgiving finally caught up with me) that I just heated up some leftovers and crawled under a quilt and read and watched TV for a few hours, LOL. Then I got up and ate some pie. A good day.
