Stitching and Decorating

I got a little more done on "Snowflake". I decided it would probably be easier to start in the middle and work out from there. These middle snowflakes are mostly backstitch and do take time to do with the metallic threads. It's too bad that the sparkle doesn't show up in the picture and you really can't see all that I did. There are a lot of beads still to do in this section but they will be put on last.

I put the finishing touches on the December Seasonal Shelf today. I'm really happy with the way it came out. The tree is one I crocheted several years ago and just added the beaded garland. Both the Snowman and Santa light up. The second picture is a close up of the LK Stamp and JBW Mittens.

Today was a really loooooooong day. DH Tracy had to have more blood work done and we had to wait for 3 1/2 hours at the lab. Note to self, NEVER go to the lab after a holiday. Then off to the Post Office and yet another line but at least this one moved a little faster. As a reward I got to go to Michael's to pick up a few things I needed and found some really cute Christmas charms for more Scissor Fobs. Didn't get much stitching done but made some progress on the afghan for my new grandbaby-to-be. Hope to get to bed early tonight and spend the next couple of days just stitching.

Your shelf looks fabulous! And the snowflake piece is really taking shape. Sorry to hear about the horror show of waiting. Don't you just hate that? I know I do. I am not very good at it either. I tend to get a bit cranky when I have to wait that long. LOL
