Green Wiseman from Heartstrings Nativity Set
The only stitching around here in the last couple of days has been basketweaving his background.  Really going to make him pop.

Got her done

Mary from the Heartstrings nativity set
I finished the background using four strands of DMC floss 423.

Tree pear from Kelly Clark
Next up to finish is my tree pear.  The lovely ladies at The French Knot sent me one more strand of Daisies to finish up.  Maybe by tomorrow.

Another package of Squiggees!

The Swans are crazy for these 3-D houses by Squiggee.  Christine's Osterville Needlepoint Shop has some for 50% off.  We bought some more.  They are so cute.

Big stack

This one is mine

The number to Christine's shop is 508-428-4455.  Hurry and get yours before the Swans buy them all.  Here's one that EG stitched:

Almost too sick to stitch

Sorry about the irregular posting.  I have been under the weather.  I did stitch a little while in the bed.

Thanksgiving House Star

Stitched using Cindy Howland's star diagram
 I like it but wondering if it looks a bit starfishy?

Thanksgiving House Weekend

Finished the beading around the roof's edge

Stitched the area around the star
 Hoping that tonight I will be able to fill in the black of the roof I missed and get the star done.

Thanksgiving House Thursday

I spent my Thanksgiving House Thursday beading the roofline.  Very satisfying.

Lucky me

   Because I blog I have hundreds of needlepoint pictures.  I scroll through them periodically and think how luck I am to have all these.  Here is one page for you. 

Can you believe that is one page?
