Christmas tag

My latest project which was supposed to be much smaller so it could be a package tag. I made it bigger so it could be framed and set on a stand. Working on the backround currently. Made mostly with wdw floss leftover from over projects.

Ornament Finish and Door Hanger

Here is Kylie's ornament with all the stitching completed. I think she will really like it. I love the little baby dragon. Now I have to decide if I want to stitch it by hand and mount or stuff it or if I want to buy a sewing machine at Joanns for it and other projects.

 I also finished a door hanger. This pattern was in the Just Crossstitch December issue. The wreath was all french knots which was a challenge for me. I don't mind one or two but getting a bunch of them in a circle was tough. Need to mount this and put a hanger on it.

My next project is to finish backstitching on a project my sister started. It has tons of backstitching. I will put a picture up when I am finished.

Coleen's Bookmark

My childhood friend, Coleen is a huge Kansas State fan. I found some varigated purple floss that was perfect for making a bookmark for her. She took a picture of it so I could include it in my new blog. Thanks, Coleen!

Kylie's Christmas Ornament

Here is my current project. I am making a Christmas ornament for my niece, Kylie, who loves dragons. This ornament was in the 2010 Just CrossStitch magazine and is a Mom and baby dragon. I am about 70% done.

My New Blog

I have started a new blog to share by love of stitching with my friends, family and fellow stitching and stash addicts. Looking forward to actually having a blog of my very own!
