This past week was a much better week. Everyone is feeling better. Fingers crossed that it stays that way!
This week I started a new project Plaid Greetings by Ladybug Lane Designs from Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments 2009. I finished!!!!
I know you are probably wondering why on earth I'm still doing so much Christmas stuff. This past Christmas Carol over at Stitching Dreams posted a picture of her staircase display of ornaments. Did you happen to see it? I fell in love with it! I'm really hoping to have something like this for myself this coming Christmas. Even though I've made some ornaments in the past, I've always given them away as gifts so I don't have any. I'm really hoping to make enough to do a decent display and then continue adding on in the future.
So what's up this week? It's the Santa Nutcracker from the Nutcracker Quartet in the Just Cross Stitch Magazine November/December 2012 issue. We started a collection of Nutcrackers for our son when he was little so each year he gets a new one that we display in our living room. I'll have to get a picture this Christmas of his collection. He'll still get a new one this year, but I thought he might enjoy some ornaments as well. Here is a picture from the magazine....
I wanted to thank you guys for helping me add the "follower" tab to my blog. Hopefully it will work correctly, if not please let me know. I'm still learning how to do this.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day. Look what my hubby got me...
Yes, another HAED!!!! We had a Westie for almost 15 years and he died about two years ago. He was the best dog ever! I can't wait to start this one - but not this week. It'll be in my rotation soon.
