Santa Is Done!

All I need to do now is send him to the finisher!  He is a little more work to make into an ornament than I like, but he is so cute.

Still Working

I have started one of the large bands on the Doodle Sampler.  Lots of coral knots and then I need to add needle weaving.

Gay Ann Rogers is Back!

In honor of her return I was going to start a new heart.  But then I remembered that I have two of her drawn thread samplers started.  She discusses them on her webpage when she discusses pearl cotton.  Mine is being worked on linen and coton a broder. Both are DMC threads but the stuff I am using is softer.  I wish I had stuck with congress cloth and the pearl cotton on this piece, which is how Gay Ann originally stitched it.  The congress cloth is easier for me to see and I like the definition the pearl cotton gives. Oh well, I am not starting this piece again.

Small Progress on Reptiles

I'm slowly working on this project.  I love working on it, but can only do a little bit every night.  Some nights I miss.  This is going to take years.

Santa's Getting a Hat

I love how this one is turning out, but the hat is giving me a bit of a fit.  I need light and tow needles.

Another Finish

Fun to stitch!  I have Joseph to do, but I pulled the angel to do next.  Love these bead kits!

Reflections on Blogging From A to Z

I enjoyed doing the A to Z Challenge. It showed me that I have way too much stash.  I think I need to do a stash diet or a use it or lose it challenge.  Hmmm.  But it was fun to try to blog every day although I never reply to comments.  There is only so many hours in the day and I need spend a little time stitching...
