 This week I worked on my Cat Cushion.  Two cats complete and working on the third one.  Then I just need to finish the background and do back stitching and it will be done.   That sounds quick and easy but it will take a bit and will probably be a finish for 2014.
I cat sat for my sister-in-law while they were in Florida.  They brought me back this mug because I collect frogs.  But what they didn't know is that when my sister was little she could not pronounce Cathy and call me Cha Cha.  She still does.  So this mug is especially nice.
On Thanksgiving, my brother and his wife hosted at their house.  Part of our Thanksgiving tradition is to after lunch do some kind of craft project with my brothers kids.  He has 9.  Now only the little girls do the crafts (I did have one nephew stop and make one this year).  We made beaded candy cane ornaments for the tree.  I bought the kit at Hobby Lobby and it said it made 24.  I think we got that many as each of the girls made at least 5.  This picture is missing one of my nieces who also made ornaments.  Anna the youngest kept beading away.  She lasted the longest.

My sister and I also ran the Galloping Gobbler Thanksgiving morning with a group of her friends she works with.  It was cold!  26 degrees.  It was 4 hilly miles from St. Francis University thru the cemetery and back.  About mile 3 I met up with two ladies I work with and we finished the race together.  I did it in 49 min and 32 seconds.  Not bad for me.

Amazing all the connections/threads that bring us together.

I have found the world to be a small place. There are always connections to people we know.
