Happy New Year!

Where's the Party by Lizzie Kate finished as a flat wool ornament with jingle bells sewn on the bottom.

Brittercup Christmas Kitty by Brittercup Designs 2005 JCS Ornament Magazine finished as a flat ornament and gifted to a Loralee.

These are my last two finishes for the year. I have read with great interest everyone's stitching goals for next year. So far my only goals are to stitch more ornaments and samplers for my sampler wall. Though I didn't stitch as much as I would have liked, I am pretty pleased with my start on my sampler wall. I also want to work on some Valentine ornaments to do a Valentine tree.

My current works in progress are as follows:

Olde Settlement and Hoodoo Voodoo by The Primitive Needle

Sunflower House by Blackbird Designs (love the colors in this one)

Magic Garden Sampler by Shakespeare's Peddler (this one is fun to stitch)

Of course there are many more lurking around, but these are my primary focus at the moment.

Anyway, Christmas is over for another year. It was a good one and we were very, very blessed. The pockets are very light! LOL I hope that everyone will have a healthy, peaceful and prosperous New Year! Thanks for your continued visits!

Ornament Finishing

I first want to thank you for all so much for the compliments on my sampler wall and my new blog look. I must admit I am pretty happy with the wall so far myself. Now, I recently got a chance to sit down the other day and do some ornament finishing. I had been wanting to try Vonna's flat wool felted ornament tutorial found here . It was so easy, though I need to work on my corner's a little more. Thanks Vonna for such a great tutorial.

Ho Ho Tired by Homespun Elegance and Star Topiary Ornament Hillside Samplings. The Ho Ho Tired is a new finish.

Joy Ornament by Erica Michaels and Holly Jolly by Lizzie Kate. The Holly Jolly was stitched for me by my mom!

Walt the Malt by Raise the Roof. This is a new finish too and finished finished as a pin keep ornament. It has a pretty pepper mint fabric on the back.

Merry Christmas Freebie from Nan at Threadwork Primitives. Freebie found

I plan to stitch that one again for myself as it was given away in an ornament swap recently at my LNS, Well that's my update for now. It's pretty cool here in Florida today at 37 degree's. So I am making chicken and dumplings tonight, something nice and warm for the coolness. Thanks for stopping by!
