What a wonderful reminder that no matter the state of things, the world is still spinning, we'll all eat turkey and watch football, and that some things will never change.
Happy Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Get out your Christmas cards, update those mailing lists, round up the gift wrap, make your lists and check them twice. The Fat Man in the red suit is warming up the reindeer as we speak!

- Untouched tropical beauty of Jamaica
- Uninterrupted stitching time
- Unbelieveable sunrises/sunsets
- Never ending gourmet dining
- Perfect weather for 6 glorious days
- Red Stripe Light
- Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee (oh yea, it really is $38/lb. good)
Some of the lowlights:
- 3000 random yawho's sharing my ship
- abject poverty just beyond the tourist borders ashore
- 20 hours of rough seas and all that comes (and goes) with that
All in all, a good time was had by all. SIL and BIL celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in style, over lobster and filet mignon. Hubby and I enjoyed some much needed R&R. I would like to go back some day and spend a little more time exploring the natural beauty of Jamaica, the Caymans and Cozumel, but according to my travel compass, ITALY is next!

Sore joints, stuffy nose, achy head
tissues flying, nose crying, tears coming out of my eyes
Dah nah nana da na
shots don't lie, ain't sick but wantin' to die
head is splittin', room is spinnin', too sore to stitch!
I got the flu shot blues...
Dah nah nana da na
I got the flue shot blues
Everybody now, I got the flu shot blues...

If small-ish samplers count, I have a good "old school" sampler to claim: Kingsland, The Learned Wife. I also have an Adam and Eve piece in progress however, the colors are so off that I need to frog most of it and re-do. Stitching set is also in progress. One day, little fish needle book, one day. As for the impossibly long To Do list and shameful stash? I'm working on it.
Me thinks I have miles to go before I sleep.

I had a wonderful surprise waiting for me when I got home last week. My new Italian friend Giulia Manfredini of Giulia Punti Antichi, gifted me with her Christmas sewing set pattern. I couldn't believe such a nice gesture from someone I've never met, so far away! Little did she know that I've been longing to stitch one of these little slippers and now I have no excuse! She can expect a little surprise from me in her mailbox sometime in the future. Thanks so much Giulia!

I haven't gotten much stitching done, but I should have one more angel for the Angel Tree done by the time I get home. YEAH!
