Boy oh boy has the time gone by quickly this month!! It's been a wonderful holiday season with friends and family.
Here are some pics of my tree. I have paper doves and paper cardinals. I think they are so much fun. Then while decorating I noticed my balled scraps of yarn and thought they'd make nice ornaments...and they did !! They were also great fun for the cats if the tree got bumped and a 'ball' happened to drop to the floor. A great chase always ensued.
And my new most FAVORITE Christmas Candy !! OMG ..... so good I bought a box of them. Milk Chocolate covered Mint flavored marshmallow PEEPS!! Yes I shared but I hogged some too!! They are yummy.
Now on to the 2011 Stitching Challenge of one start per day for the first fifteen days of January. I had such a good time going through my stash. Here's my start for today:
The beginning of Anna's Bird on 32 count Black Belfast Linen. I decided to do my own conversion of the called for Weeks and Gentle Art thread to my personal favorite....BELLE SOIE . So far, so good.
I so enjoyed stitching June Morning with the Belle Soie conversion provided by Jean at Attic Needlework that I decided to try it myself. It's coming right along.
Hang in there with me as I update my blog for the next 15 days. And mind you that before March 1st I have to knit 5 hats and as many mittens as I can for a family trip to Chicago! Plus I am continuing to stitch on the Blackbird Design stockings. I have 6 left to stitch and then finish the last 24 into hanging stockings. I'm also determined to finish Garden Glade, And All Was For An Appil and Molly this year. I'll post some progress on those as well.
