Last for 2008

There are still a few items I have finished and not shown you that I have finished this year.

Not very good photo's sorry. The first is a cube I made using SanMan Originals member's only chart Sneggdeer.

Lizzie Kate's Winter Wishes.

SanMan Originals Candy Tuck. A member's only chart and the tuck came with it as well.

SanMan Originals Frosty Faces another member's only chart and button. I found the tinsel ribbon in a craft shop and unlike real tinsel it does not shed the tinsel.

Christmas Rose by Elizabeth Designs.

Thank you all for visiting my blog in 2008 and I hope you will continue to visit in 2009

Mermaid Of The Pearls

I've been asked about the mermaid I use for my avatar. It is one of the Mirabilia Mermaids, The Queen Mermaid. I have also stitched The Mermaid Of The Pearls, but unfortunately neither of them have been framed yet. I said I was bad at finishing and that includes framing. I really must get them framed one day they are far to beautiful just to lie rolled up in the cupboard.

Maybe I will show you a few more of my finished but not framed pieces soon.

Santa's Surprise and a Gingerbread Man

I have finished one of my ornaments, Santa's Surprise by Ladybug Lane Designs. This is from the JCS ornament issue 2006

The Gingerbread Man is from SanMan Originals, the frame came with the chart and is one of the Secret Shop newsletter kits. It was a lovely quick stitch and looks so cute.

Ornament squares

Here are the lovely ornament squares I received. It was fun joining in exchanges again. This one and the RR one were the first ones I joined in for a few years. I must join more next year.

This is from Rose, Thank you again Rose.

Louise sent me this one she stitched it from the Prairie Schooler Starry Night book. Thank you Louise.

Kay sent me this lovely sparkly Ready Set Snow unfortunately it is hard to see the white glittery stitching in the scan. Thank you Kay.

Time does fly. LOL It's been a while since I added anything to my blog I bet you all thought I had given it up. LOL It's nearly Christmas and all my presents have been brought, all stitchy presents made and the ornament square swap I was in on the Starydreamers forum have been received. I'll show you the ornament squares today.

This one I stitched for Kay and is called Woodland Joy by Something In Common. It is from the 2000 Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue.

This one is for Louise and is Roly Poly Snowman by Bent Creek from the 2002 Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue.

This one is for Rose and is Winter's Eve from Country Cottage Needleworks in the 2006 Just Cross Stitch Ornament Magazine.

I have now received my lovely ornament squares from the girls, just got to scan the last one and I will show you them all tomorrow.
