Completed RR piece.......

I finished Sheri's RR piece last night. It's for a HAED RR I was in this year with Nikki, Tash, Leigh, Terri, Michelle & Sheri. I'll get it into the mail today - I realized with Christmas so close I didn't want to wait and it get lost in the avalanche of additional mail this time of year.
Now, before you look at the picture I put it under very bright light so that you can see the delicate blending and shading detail. So, the actual fabric and texture of the stitches looks washed out, and it looks like coverage is an issue (but it's not) it's truly beautiful in person.
I'm going to put some stitching time into my Chatelaine Christmas Mandala piece. I'll post an update of it soon.....

2007 Christmas Ornaments

These are the ornaments I stitched this year. Part of my 2008 stitching goals includes a little ornament stitching each month so I should have more to share next year.

I'll be mailing these the first of next week but I couldn't resist posting the picture now. If you look close, you'll notice on the 'Merry Christmas' ornament that I don't have the back or ribbon attached. I just got back from the store buying pretty dark green ribbon!

I've completed nearly all my Christmas shopping so I can relax and enjoy the rest of the holiday season.

It's been a frustrating day...........

winter is on my mind, I'm so envious of all you northerners and the beautiful snow you've been getting. Makes it seem like the holiday season is truly here. I've been itching to start my Snow Princess & The Polar Bear chart (Ruth Sanderson by HAED). It has always seemed like a peaceful winter stitch, all that snow and starrey skies, I can't imagine working on it any other time of year. Guess I better get to a spot real quick like in my stitching where I can start it, sans guilt.

okay, just wanted to get everyone else thinking and dreaming about a new start...giggle
