Merry Christmas!

Here we are with Christmas upon us again. Every year as I get older it seems to come even more quickly  than the year before. I am as ready as I will ever be this year. This is my Lizzie Kate Santa 2010 Socks and Underwear finished into a cube. It's my second attempt as the first met with disaster. I am still not super happy with it. The bottom is kind of annoying me, but I am going to leave it alone for the time being. It is a no sew cube so I can pull apart again if I want need to.  I tend to want my things to look perfect, which is a very bad tendency to have! LOL

This is the back of the cube.

I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year if I don't post again  before the end of  December! I am thankful for so many things and one of the things I am thankful for is sharing this amazing hobby and friendship with you. 

Last but certainly not least. I leave you with a picture of Tabasco. I have had him almost a year now. He is really funny and loves to terrorize my other cats by chasing them. He is the baby after all! LOL  He also has terrorized my poor Christmas tree by pulling out the ting and knocking ornaments off of it. He has ran through the presents several times and chewed up one of my gift bags! Bad kitty! LOL My son says the Christmas tree is like cat nip to the cats! I find that pretty funny. They do seem to think the tree was put up especially for them.

Anyway, I am off to have a little Christmas party with the kids. Blessings to you and yours!

Ornament Finishing!

Here is Santa doing a little modeling for me with my ornament finishes and finishing! First up is Joy to Ewe by Chessie and Me. It was a small kit with threads and fabric. My poor little sheep is supposed to be fluffy-however Sharon and the French knots did not get along. But, I think he is still cute. I finished it into a pin keep ornament. 

Up next is a little kit I got from a store in Wyoming called Ewe Count. I can't remember the name of the pattern but it was a gift pattern done by Samsarah for their store. I saw it someone else's blog and called and ordered it. I just liked it mainly because of the cute boot button and that it was by Samsarah. I finished it simply as a flat ornament with a chenille hanger.  Also, if you haven't tried the chenille trim by R and R you should, I love it!

This next one you have seen before, it's my Bedford Falls ornament by The Sampler Girl and I believe it's my favorite of the three. I just love the colors and I added a few jingle bells at the top. You know an angel gets their wings every time you hear a bell-though probably not a jingle bell-LOL

That's it for now, I have 4 more to finish and I keep promising to show my Sarah's House and I will. I just wanted to get these posted. I have finished Christmas to just finish a little shopping. How are your Christmas preparations going?

Have a blessed Sunday friends!
