April 6, 2009


My photography skills suck, but something beats nothing. I finished these two ornaments recently. The deer ornament was finished on March 30. Baby's 1st Christmas was finished on April 2 thanks to a very boring three day training class I had to attend at work. Too many breaks and extended lunch periods gave me plenty of stitching time!
That's one down for the grandson and two to go. I need to stitch his 2008 and 2009 ornaments and he will be caught up. For the grand daughter, I have 2008 and 2009 to do. I'm starting to rethink this cross stitch ornament idea for the grandbabies. If my girls ever have more children, I'll stay behind all the time or never stitch anything other than Christmas ornaments.
Thursday a coworker and I are stopping by a new quilt store that has opened near our workplace. Can you believe it? A quilt store in the middle of nowhere! I am especially interested in classes. My first project is going to be a t-shirt quilt for my (K) made from sports t-shirts from her youth. I am very excited about the prospect of quilting! I have several books on the subject, LOL!, but have never made an attempt. Cross Stitching, Scrapbooking, Crochet, the list goes on and on......too many hobbies, not enough time!!!

Hi Carol,

Thank you for your visit to my blog and thanks for joining in my giveaway! "Quiete follower", oh now I know how to say them, as my English is not good enough, I didn't know how to say...
It's lovely to hear from you finally!
Your deer ornament is so beautiful!
Could you tell me what designer's pattern is it? or is it from a magazine??

Anyways, thank you Carol!
