Seeing Double....

double ornaments that is. I am going to a stitch in tonight at my LNS and we had an option to do an ornament exchange. Many ideas floating in my head-but not enough time. So I had stitched Heart in Hands ornament from the 2002 JCS ornament magazine for me and I repeated it for the stitch in. It was quick and easy. Right up my alley-LOL. I attempted to use this finishing technique by Monique of My Mark Designs but I had a little trouble with my wire and beads-so I improvised with this look. I think it came out okay. I like the wire and bead look though.

Barbara from Mainely Stitching sent me a sweet beaded fob with a frog on it-to keep my stitching frogs away. It is lovely, but I can't get a decent picture of it. I love it though. Thanks Barbara for thinking of me! Thanks to all of you too for the lovely compliments regarding me and my family.

Anyway, I must run. I am making Pioneer Woman's apple dumplings for tonight and they are super yummy and quick. Go try them-you won't regret it though your hips might-LOL
Happy Stitching!
