During the storm I stitched up a Christmas ornament which will be a gift... so I hide the names. :o) I still need to hand stitch the side seam.
Making the ornament above gave me the idea to make my husband's boss an ornament for Christmas also. He works for Mobility Supercenter. (their logo is pictured below). They always have a tree up for Christmas and I thought it would be cute for them to have an ornament with their logo on it to hang on the tree this year... and many years to come.
Trying to make the pattern on graph paper...... is there a better way to do this? I'd love to know!
I haven't started stitching it up yet.... when I do I will be sure to take some photos.
And guess what.... I won twice last week!! Crazy, I know. I wasn't even trying. I was just visiting blogs that I love. Over at 'Sew Much 2 Luv', Karen had a "Sew & Stitch Along". There were flickr groups for each week and you posted what you were stitching of the Holidays in the group for the week. I won week #2. And this is what I won....
L*K's 'Gather a Harvest' pattern, Bent Creek's 'A Pumpkin Flower Sampler' pattern, Trail Creek Farm's ' Fall' pattern, 4 My Boy's 'Autumn Splendor' pattern and a pack of 18 count cross stitch fabric. I received my package yesterday during the hurricane. It made my day!
Then Over at 'Crafty Sheep', Alexis had an '&Stitches e-zine Giveaway'. I received a copy of 'Scandinavia' ,Issue #4 from &Stitches.... Nicole & Carina. It has wonderful projects in it by some pretty talented people.
I LOVE all of these ladies blogs.
