A little tipsy and a puppy

It has been a good stitching week for me. Two, count them, two completed designs. That is very good for me, because as I've said many times, I am a very slow stitcher.

I absolutely fell in love with the Charland Designs Tipsy Tree when I perused the JCS Ornament issue. Since funky trees are a favorite of my, I knew I would be stitching it. The fabric is a piece of scrap left over from another project. I wanted to see how it stitched up. So, this little one is mine, all mine. I will be doing more for some friends trees.

The Britty Christmas puppy is one of the ornaments for a Humane Society volunteer who prefers dogs over cats. Most of the volunteers I work with are cat fanciers, so I've done four of the Britty Christmas kittys so far. Now, I must get to work and turn them into some ornaments for the office tree.

I was all set to begin Just Nan's Christmas biscornu as my next project. Went to get my pattern, and low and behold, none, nada, nuthin'. When I was at my LNS and purchased ... I ended up with the thread pack, and no pattern. My oh my, that is going to be one $precious$ biscornu by the time I get the pattern in my hot little hands! I must pay more attention to what I'm purchasing.

Thanks to all who left birthday wishes in my comments box. I had a good day, and week. Yesterday I received another wonderful gift from my dear friend Lynn and a card from a friend in Louisiana. For a milestone birthday it has been a good week.

I want to thank you wonderful stitchers who stop by to look at my blog. I feel like I know each and everyone of you. The stitching blog community is a great one to belong to!
