I only got one chocolate covered cherry and DH only got one piece of cranberry macadamia nut bark. We shared the spices walnuts and chow mien noodle chocolate candies/cookies.
Thank you Edgar you have made our first Christmas party as success. Like you have said many times. Stitchers are the bestiest friends I'm so privileged to have you for one of mine.
I'll now re-tie the ribbon on the box and put it under the Christmas tree I hope to put up this weekend. (Pics to come)
Sorry I have been MIA but hope to catch up soon.
Merry Stitching everyone.

Since I don’t have any new pics to show I’m going to post the oldest UFO in my stash.
Leisure Arts from 1971 – I have 3 and a half of the small ones done. Still need to do the big one. What do you think the chances are you’ll see this finished in my life time? What would I do with them if I finished them?
Blast From the Past
Catch up time

Becky found out that I have never stitched a Lizzie Kate, so wonderful person that she is, she sent me my first ever Lizzie Kate Designs. She is such a thoughtful friend and her groups are such fun that I wish the whole world could share the comfort of good stitching friends.
I am still stitching on Hanna the Happy at work. This is an old picture I'll do a new one tonight when I get home to show my progress.
Gabi, sent me this beautiful stitching book. The design is from LHN "Season of Growth"
Inside there are pockets for everything, scissors, thimble and pencil, a felt needle minder, rings for thread and a pouch for the hoop.
Gabi, Thank You for such a wonderful exchange.

Other than that I've been working on exchanges so no pictures of them to show yet.
But I did organize this drawer of silk ribbon so I could share the with a stitcher who is taking SharonB's Silk Ribbon Embroidery class. I bought these 6 or 7 years ago from Pink Peppercorns. I wish she were still in business.
They all have their own little drawer now in a 48 drawer cabinet like my I did with my DMC threads.
Thanks for coming by I'll try to have something interesting share next time.

The fabric squares are piece a little different that the cross stitched 15 sided Biscornus that are more circular. I really prefer them star shaped but I wouldn't

I will be gone until late Sunday for a visit to see DM and DB in San Diego. Poor DH is on his own for 4 days. I did leave him a fridge full of food and baked him a cake. So he is not to poor.
Thank you for visiting. Please leave a comment.

I'll get back to it tomorrow but when I received the new Inspirations Magazine I found two great projects that just screamed my name. They are both by USA artists the first is Japanese Kogin embroidery by Phyllis Maurer I started on Saturday and made this much progress already. I used fibers and fab from my stash it is 25 count something and dark mauve pearl 8. It will probably be a stitching rollup. I've needed one for some time and had planed to use a purchased place mat to make it but this looks like more fun.
And it has a very easy article on Japanese temari balls with great instruction for one call Oliver Twist. The article is by Barbara Suess You can see the picture on here site. DH is doing the core and yarn wrap for me. I'm thinking a black string wrap with olive green pearl cotton. This looks to become an addition.
It's back to work the slave drivers want me to earn my paycheck. Geeezzz
Thanks for stopping by I love to get comments Please!!
