Good evening everyone,
Look at this beautiful RAK Christmas ornament from Angela, we did a private exchange in the fall and what she mailed to me never arrived and she was kind enough to send me another one. The finishing on it is beautiful! It's a LK pattern and she used DMC threads, stitched on lugana.
I managed to find some stitching interest today, finished stitching my exchange piece, I'll work on making it an ornament later this week while it's raining as predicted for 5 strait days. Then I decided to stitch an ornament for myself, since I haven't done one this year for my ornie tree. I pulled out the 2011 JCS ornie magazine and started Love and Joy by JBW, it's a quick stitch, I believe I will have it completed by tomorrow.
Friday night is the monthly stitch in, I plan on attending this one! It's the cookie exchange meeting, my kids are done with soccer games, practices and meetings, the DD isn't scheduled to work, I won't be rushed. I always take something to stitch when I do attend, but never pull it out, I paruze the store, gab a bit, and end up making a purchase of some sort. It's a beautiful store, but you add 15+ women in it and there isn't any room, and I can't stitch well without my magnifier, I have the little one that attaches to the Q snaps, but I find it frustrating and just have more admiring everyone else's projects.
WEll, time to get dinner in the oven, working on a Shepherds Pie. Yumm.
Blessings to everyone
