First finish of 2010 & a Giftie
I had so much fun stitching this and then putting it together. Tanya included directions for a Herringbone stitch so thats what I stitched all the way around and she was right it was just what it needed. They do look like little laces.
Here is another view of it
I am going to print these out for my stitching album.
I also wanted to share a special ornament that my sister friend Siobhan made me. We both love these Prairie Schooler Santas, and she surprised me with this one. Isn't it darling. I just love it. I should have taken a picture of the back too. It is finished perfectly with a wool houndstooth back, so pretty. Thank you again dear friend. I will treasure it. Hey is that me that Santa is bobbing up and down. LOL
This was a great weekend, I did a lot of cooking (& eating) and spent some time with my daughter Jennifer and her children. It was lots of fun. I bought us a new Monopoly Board game to play. I thought it was so funny. No more money in monopoly, only a credit card and a machine. LOL No more passing out all them bills. We all enjoyed it. No more buying boardwalk, or railroads, we buy COUNTRIES!! LOL Just like the children I got a big kick out of using the little banking ATM machine. It made me wonder are they preparing for the future maybe there will be no paper money at all. As is I know quite a few people who don't carry any cash and use their ATM cards for everything. It was fun I must admit and interesting.
Happy Tuesday everybody!! xoxox
