Just Cross Stitch Ornament Preview Issue 2007
I had so much fun working on this one! Patty is a fan of snowmen so I also tucked in a few other little goodies with the ornament. You can sneak a peek at them on Patty's blog. I'm so glad that she was pleased with everything.
In addition to the exchange, I've been trying to get the M Designs name trees finished for my granddaughters. Anyone who is a regular reader of this blog will know that I have been stitching these over the course of the past two years. I kept telling myself that the girls were still young and there was plenty of time to get them done. Well, the girls are now 6 and 5 and their Dad recently asked me if I had ever finished them. Time to get moving! The stitching on Oceanne's tree is done and Summer's is almost there! These are my first attempts at over one stitching.

After my recent ornament finishing spree, I started another. This one is a Blue Ribbon Design called Red Birds for Peace. It was stitching up pretty quickly until I realized that the cardinals in this design are stitched over one. So it will wait until the name trees are completed before I tackle it.
I'm heading into the city shortly for my weekly Tuesday group. I skipped out last week because I just didn't feel like doing the drive into town. Tonight I'll concentrate on my JB Christmas which has been neglected lately. After all, I can't work on the over one stitching there without the use of my trusty magnifying lamp (which at the moment is still minus the lamp portion).
My visit with my granddaughters on Saturday was so much fun! I haven't had time to upload the pictures yet so I'll have one or two on my next post. I haven't been home a whole lot lately but when I have, I've been trying to do a little decorating for Christmas. Our tree won't be up for a little while yet but I have lots of other decor to spread around. Hopefully I'll have a few pics of those next post as well. Tomorrow I'll be spending a good part of the day in the dentist chair getting an implant. Wish me luck!
