Got some new stash today. I saw that so many had stitched these ornies and I of course had to give in and have them. Aren't they cute? I can't wait to stitch them. I think they will be my first ornies for the new year.

Here are just some of the cotton washcloths I have been stitching. I have already given 2 packs of 5 away. I have crocheted 34 so far. 34 OMG I can hardly believe it, that is unbelievable for me to make 34 of anything. They are so easy and fun though. I love the assortment of colors the cotton yarn comes in. The striping yarn is the most fun I think.

Tonight my husband, sil Tony, and my grandson Tyler all went to the Jeff Dunham Show in Albany. Tyler is so excited, he can't wait to see "Achmed" I think this will be a night he won't forget for a long time. So while they are away I am going to work on my Clara's Skating Sampler and try to finish it. I don't have much more to do. I just took this picture to share. I just love it. Maybe tomorrow I can announce my very first 2010 stitching finish, the washcloths don't count.

Well, have a good evening everyone. Take care.

Those washcloths are really neat -- and I love the way you package them! What a lovely gift! I love those ornament charts you bought as well -- I got the pear one so far but none of the others. I'm thinking about getting them though. :D Your future first finish is so pretty -- love the colors!
