Petei Extravaganza

Like the TV stations that run movies all day on New Year's Eve...but more fun for needlepointers!

Goodbye to Christmas 2015 and Hello 2016

It's time to pack it all up.  This is early for us but we are putting our house on the market some day soon.  I personally think that a tree full of needlepoint ornaments would help it sell!  I will look forward to seeing them all next year.

What is left to pack up 

Santa by Mile High?  that I stitched MANY years ago

Ribbon binging again at Tuesday morning

Stitching away on this heart from Painted Pony

Brilliant background stitch from Amy Bunger
 This is Serendipity using a shiny ribbon floss alternating with a matte thread.  I love it.  Thank you, Amy!  I took this to our visit in October of 2015.  I can hardly wait until October of 2016.

Stitching her wings
Another Christmas gift that didn't get finished since I was fighting City Hall.  I am stitching her wings using size 4 Kreinik in the alternating continental stitch.  I hope it will be ready to gift in 2016.

Very Precious Gift

I received this beautiful ornament from ELH, my fellow SWAN, at the SWAN Christmas party this year.  I could not love it more.  I will treasure it always.  Happy New Year to you all!
