A Favor To Ask?

I want to try my hand at designing a sampler and small stitched pieces, but I'm looking for a specific alphabet (or at least the font name)!  It's similar to one used by Stacy Nash and Jenny Hoffman of Country Rustic Primitives.  It's a primitive slanted script.  I don't have a single alphabet book and I don't mind purchasing one, but I do need it to have that script.  If I even had the name of the font, I could try to chart up something myself....If you can help, please let me know!!!

Never Forget

December 7, 1941...A Date Which Will Live In Infamy...

2,403 Americans dead and another 1,178 Americans wounded.

Newsreel of the Attack on Pearl Harbor:

And to remember the USS Arizona...USS Arizona

1,177 men rest at the bottom of the harbor, encased in the Arizona's rusty hull.  In the Navy's known history, there hzs never been a ship that has taken so many of its crew down with her.

I'm On A Roll!

I can't believe I'm actually accomplishing things!  Even with my kitchen/pantry still a total disaster area (are we on week 2 or 3 now of everything item from my pantry on my breakfast room table?)!  I can show you two cross stitched pieces I did "years" ago (from my drawer of shame) that I have fashioned into little pillow ornaments.  They are from Shepherd's Bush ~ the Be-Attitude Series ~ Be Merry and Be Jolly!  I've got them listed in my Etsy store, but I won't cry if they don't sell ~ LOL!!

For all the stitching I've managed to get done, I'm just not feeling the Christmas spirit this year...very tired and not enthusiastic about decorating the house and having everyone over on Christmas day and then undecorating the house!  Over the years, I've managed to downsize Christmas...I used to have a tree in every room of the house ~ I must have been insane!!  Now, I have a little 3-foot tree that I set up in the living room on a pedestal table.  My sweet DD and her hubby came over today and brought little Hayden to visit.  Christa made dinner and decorated my tree for me ~ I love her just for that!!  I'm just going to keep it minimal this year.  I have two Rubbermaid bins and that's what I will store Christmas in ~ if it doesn't fit, I don't keep it!

Anyhoo, I'm hoping you all are having a happy and productive weekend!

P.S. ~ I'm having trouble keeping up with reading all my blogs, but I continue to be inspired by all the beautiful work everyone has done!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the inspiration and eye candy!!!
