Our church sewing circle supports the women’s shelter at a mission in a nearby town. We give Christmas gifts in stockings that we make. I cut out 12 large ones for the children and 19 smaller ones for the ladies.
I stitched them with gold thread and a feather stitch by machine. The metallic thread kept breaking and finally the 4th brand is working, no shredding or breaking on 8 stockings so far. I have to have them done by Monday afternoon for our sew in at the church.
I went to Wal-m*rt yesterday morning and I checked to see if they are going to have Christmas cactus for sale this year. They had some and this is a new color that my 2 friends and I don’t have. I’m calling it a champagne color because it isn’t yellow or apricot. They were only $2.92 each, a steal!! I picked them up for my friends in case Wal-m*rt doesn’t have any more of this color.
