Tree is up!


Nutcracker ornament given to me by AB

Sock Monkey
Rogue ornament stitched by me
Background stitch idea by Carolyn Baird.  Brilliant idea to stitch the green subway tiles like hospitals have.  I am in a mood to decorate.  That includes ornaments.

BIG ribbon
Pear from Heartstrings
I bought this at Amy's Golden Strand and stitched it using the guide it came with.  Time to tart it up...

A little check
I bought this ribbon at Carolyn Baird's ribbon store located in Chapparal in Houston, Texas.  So cute.

Carrot from Heartstrings
Not that cute  :(

Filled in the bricks...

My brownstone row is back on the stand.  I filled in the bricks with two strands of green wool.  The color is actually a little darker than what is depicted here.  I love it.  

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day.  I know I did.  I am planning on a little stitching this afternoon.  Wish that you do too!

Got something new!

My sweet neighbor gave me a gift certificate to The Needleworks for babysitting her cute kitty.  I bought this beautiful scissor case.  This will be my basketweave piece.  I love it!

Finally finished!

I finally finished my secret SWAN  ornament.   I put it up to take to the finisher and pulled this out.  All I got done was to outline the brick but I am thrilled to be stitching for fun now!
