My first attempt

I made this needlebook and scissor fob for my partner in the snowaddictedstitchers yahoo group. This was my first attempt at both of these projects and I was very happy with how they turned out.

I sort of designed my own cover for the needlebook after looking at many different ones online and many different charts.

Carolyn received this already so I can now post the finish.

Exchange Received

In the yahoo group, snowaddictedstitchers I joined a Smalls exchange and received this wonderful package from Carla today.

I love it all, and won't mind these frogs being here at all. They are marshmallow ones and I'm sure will be very yummy. I can't wait to use the coaster, floss and fabric.

Thank you so much Carla for such a wonderful package. I even have a design in mind for the fabric already.

A second finish in a day.

Last night I completed the second part of the OakhavenDesigns 2010 Month SAL.

This made the second start and finish for the day; with the frog ornament being the first from my previous post. It felt really good to stitch since I hadn't stitched in a couple days.

Now to try and finish up the third family ornament of the year and a few other projects. Hopefully I'll be able to post them really soon.

A small finish, but a finish nonetheless

Here is the second of the frog ornaments I'm stitching. With this little guy's arms and even eyes going every which way he kinda looks like me when ice skating...:)

Although I have not posted much in the way of finishes lately I have been working on stitching; but for a smalls exchange on one of my yahoogroups ( I have to say I'm very excited about my gift as it is filled with things I've not made before and Love how it is turning out. I hope to be able to post photos of it in a week or so after Carolyn receives it.

We have also been in the process of redecorating the master bedroom, which some can tell you seems to have consumed my It took me a while to find the comforter/quilt I wanted, but this week I did manage it and love how it looks. Of course with finding that and having a clear picture of the finished product (room totally decorated) I have added several projects to my to do list. "Emma Rose" by Brooke Nolan of Brooke's books is a must to hang on the wall now (just out in the Feb issue of "The Gift of Stitching" magazine and I plan to make a neckroll stitching and because the bed is so high (about 3 feet off the floor) Bill is going to have to build me a step which I plan to stitch the cushion cover for.

So much to do and so little time.
