Santa Ornament

Don't faint but not only did I stitch this lovely Santa but I actually finished it into an ornament.

The chart is from a SanMan Originals newsletter and it came with the wonderful Santa to add when the stitching is finished.  It took no time at all to stitch and finish.  I LOVE it.

Girls Night Out

I loved stitching this, well all but the faces.  I think my eyes are getting too old to stitch over one.LOL  Now I just need to find some fabric and make it into a pillow for Halloween.

I have got so many Halloween charts I want to stitch but I also have so many Christmas ones as well.  I cannot decide what to stitch next.

Did Someone Say Pie?

While I was stitching Vinnie Von Fang I thought the orange Oliver Twist thread would be great for a pumpkin.  I looked through my charts and decided to stitch 'Did Someone Say Pie?'

This is such a lovely quick stitch, I think I will make it into a little pillow ornament.  Still have loads of the orange thread so may use it on another pumpkin or two.

What shall I stitch next?  Not sure if I should make another Halloween one or a Christmas one......

Meet Vinnie

I have finished Vinnie and hopefully I will have him made into an ornament by Halloween.

Here he is............

I love Halloween and hopefully Vinnie will join in our Halloween celebrations this year along with his girlfriend Betty Broomstick.  I am going to finish him as a stand up ornament as Lizzie shows in the kit.

What shall I stitch next?  I think something for Christmas.

Sugar is Sweet

I took a break from stitching Vinnie Von Fang to make this cute picture kit from an old Sanman Originals newsletter.

I love the kits Sandy has on her newsletter as it means I will actually finish the item and it will not lay in my stitched but not finished pile. LOL  Well back to Vinnie although I have seen a few ornament charts of Sandy's that I want to stitch and if I do I MUST finish them into ornament.....but first Vinnie is calling.
