Book of Spells

did not get finished :(. But I did get this much done and I figure it should be done by tomorrow night. Vicki has decided she would like to put it on top of a needlework tool box, so we need to start looking for one the right size.I got a really cute Halloween set from my sister Vicki for Christmas. Here it is. I love Halloween stuff. She and the kids also got me several HAED's for Christmas too :)..
Well off to the daycare kids. I will try to be around more now. Have a GREAT WEEK!

Actually got a lot of my Christmas Presents done

Well Vicki and my moms anyway, LOL.. I posted pictures of my mom's. Here is Vicki's. It is from the Cross Stitch Happy Site. Vicki loves birds so here are hummingbirds.. The first picture is the whole set and the second is the other side and top flap of the scissor pocket. I packed it all in a mesh bag with handles that I got from Down Sunshine Lane to use for projects. The fabric is 28ct white opalescent lugana. Now the Book of Spells piece is another story, no it is not done. Hopefully by the end of the weekend, but at least she knew about that one, :)

Merry Christmas to you all..

Another Christmas Gift Finished

My mom is a super knitter and she is always looking for a ruler, so I made this Quaker Rule by Milady's Needle for her for Christmas. It is stitched on 40ct White Opalescent linen.

It has been awhile since

I last posted. Been so busy trying to get things stitched for Christmas. I have got to stop putting things off to the last minute.
Here is the arm chair companion I made my mom, I just finished getting it put together. I still have some small snowflake buttons to put in the corners or scatter around it, haven't decided which yet. The pattern is from the Floss Box. The Fabric is Silkweaver Spring Garden Opalescent Lugana 28ct.

Then I started the biscornu in the cross stitch tool set I am making my sister. It will be a biscornu, needlebook, scissor pocket and fob. She feeds every bird for miles around so I thought the hummingbirds appropriate. I got this design free from Cross Stitch Happy's blog. It is on a white 28ct opalescent linen.
I am also stitching her a large needle tool book from Goode Huswife called Book of Spells (she likes halloween). This is stitched on Silkweaver Midas Touch Opalescent Lugana.
I also finished stitching a quaker ruler for my mom but I haven't put it together or taken a picture yet. I will try to do that tonight. :)..

Well hopefully will be around more this week. (that means I got things accomplished, LOL)
Talk more later and have a Great week!
