Saturday Mornings

My Stove Top Percolator
Saturday mornings without errands to run are my favorite.  I get to have the best cup of coffee of the week.  Ground up the beans and percolate.  This is a percolator I purchased from a flea market for little cash.  I was looking for one for a very long time - a memory.  It is perfect - makes about 4 cups of wonderful coffee and it makes that wonderful sound of coffee percolating.  Is that the right word?  Smells great - tastes great and the anticipation while waiting for it to finish is great too.  I finally perfected the grounding of the beans so they are coarse enough not to spill out into the coffee.    Now if I can just get a rotary dial wall phone with an extra long cord -- I will be content....

We also in Central New York had a crazy warm week - in the 70's -- unheard of -- three days in a row.  I have added pictures of my stitching below.  November is the month of the year I start looking towards setting my stitching, reading, home improvement, health goals for the upcoming year.  December is way too busy for me to wait.  So I grabbing another cup of coffee and publishing this post to work on my goals.  Enjoy today...

Stitching Finishes

After Stitching is Completed 

Back after stitched together

Front of Pin Cushion
This project has been on my list to complete for awhile.  I have been doing more stitching lately of things not to frame.  This was also different because there were lots of new special stitches I had to learn, which keeps the brain functioning...  This design was published in Cross Stitch and Needlework - January 2011 - one of my favorite publications.
