Thanksgiving trip and Melody finish

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We made the long drive up to Wisconsin with two dogs, hubby, and my parents. The dogs were very well behaved in the car, but I can't say the same of Mandy at my Grandma's. Mandy was not playing nice with my Aunt's dog :(

 My youngest niece, Harper. She is such a smiley baby.

We came back from Wisconsin with 18 lbs of apples and lots of cheese. Wisconsin has a much better selection of apples than here in the South. My plan is to make lots of applesauce :)

I did not get a whole lot of cross-stitching done last week, but here is my last pixie finish: Melody.
Thanks for stopping by!

She is so pretty - your nieces are adorable.

Nothing is better than Apples. We have a great many types here in New York. And warm applesauce is the best

Looks like a fun time. I envy you the apples - I could probably eat 18 pounds of apples in 3 days! Beautiful finishing on Melody!
