THE GREAT SNOW STORM OF 2009!
A bit of a bust.






Now on to the good stuff. I've been finishing and finishing. Some pretty old stuff, too.


This is a JBW design that I finished a couple of years ago-except for the beading, which is not my favorite thing. I used materials from my stash plus some red pearl-topped pins, which made this my first pinkeep. It's finished as a little stand-along. I'm looking for a prettier stand.



I stitched these little ornies in 2007. They are part of a Vermimllion Stitchery chart. I used materials from my stash to finish them. They are really cute. Proud of these! I forgot to mention that I sort of collect Christmas fabric, so I can finish ornies for the next hundred years!!



Two more little biscornus for  the stash, both made from freds and fabby from my stash. They are freebies: the small pink one from Matrioska and the white one from Twisted Oaks.




The last is my monthly Little House Needleworks Ornament SAL. Really turned out nicely. I used the materials called for. The big surprise was the size. Very big, but worth it. Lord, how I hate sewing on beads!!

Thus ends the epistle......

I'm glad that the lack of a snowstorm didn't interfere with your stitching plans! You were certainly busy. All very nice finishes.

I have only used beads one time and that was it. I think I am going to start collecting holiday fabrics. I have just started to get back to crafting since retiring and had no stash's left.
