Finally a Update

I have really neglected my blog these past couple of weeks. Guess I've spent all my time trying to get some things finished. I promise to do better in the new year.

Finishes....

"Lil Snowman" from "Snowmen Gathering" by Imaginating
Stitched on 18 ct Navy Aida with DMC #8 Perle Cotton
I need a bunch more little snowmen ornaments for my little tree in January (Decorating it to match the seasonal shelf). I got the "Snowmen Gathering" chart on my last visit to the LNS and thought I could do the snowmen from it separately as ornaments and I think it worked out well. The finish was very easy, just fringed the edges and put felt on the back.

"Have A Very Merry Winter" by JBW Designs
Stitched on 28 ct Hand Dyed Joblean
with GAST, Crescent Colors, WDW, Carrie's Creation
and DMC #8 Perle Cotton
I just love JBW's designs and how she works the wording into the designs. Not sure how I'm going to finish this one off but think I'll do a small flat fold. Still need to find the perfect fabric for finishing.
ALMOST FINISHED.....


"Sugar Plum Fairy" Stocking
Yep, it's almost done and in plenty of time for Santa to fill this year. All that is left to do now that "Sugar" has her head is put the back on, line and do the cupcake with Maddie's name on it. This will be finally done sometime this week and off to Arkansas it will go.

It's Beginning to look alot like Christmas.....











While we were on the strip for the NASCAR Parade of Champions last Thursday we had a little time to spare and decided to check to see if the Christmas display was up at the Belliago. The Elfs (Belliago workers) were very busy getting it up and the pictures are a preview of what's to come. It's going to be very nice again this year and I can't wait to go back and see it. Of course I'll take LOTS of pictures to share.
Weather.....


It has really turned cold (for here anyway). We have had several mornings with below freezing temps and the highs have been 10-15 degrees below normal. We even got a very nice slow steady rain yesterday. The mountains are now all covered with snow and it is sooooo pretty
Time to fill the coffee cup and get back to stitching so I'll have more ornies for the tree. I hope to get Mill Hill's "naughty" done in the next couple of days and then I have a really cute snowman one to do.
Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching and stay warm

Maddie's stocking is so intricate, must have been a bear to do, it looks great though. The snowmen are great too especially the JBW one.

I love your ornaments! They are so cute. And the stocking? It is absolutely amazing!
As for the weather... scientists got it all wrong, there is no global warming, it is a global cooling and we are going to ice age (in my opinion).
