Catching Up

I have been a bad blogger, however, my part-time job has cut into my computer time.  Stitching is still on my to-do list though.

Halloween brought three finished pieces for my friends Diane, Lynn and Mary Ann.  L&M are stitchers so any stitched gift I give them is welcomed.  Diane does not stitch, but does do alot of handwork, so she appreciates my efforts also.  Here's what I gave them:

I also completed two exchange pieces.  I'm going to go ahead and post them, since I'm pretty sure the recipients do not read my blog.  Here they are:

These are from a Lizzie Kate design I've wanted to stitch for a while.  I liked the way the ornament turned out so much, that I stitched the tree and made it into a small pillow. I used bugle beads for the candles on the pillow.

My traveling buddy wanted me to stitch an ornament for her great-niece and great-nephew. How could I resist stitching Daffycat's little reindeer designs?  I couldn't, since I absolutely love them.  Here's my finished ornaments:
I stuffed them with ground walnut shells and used the background fabric on the backs.  They were stitched up using the sewing machine, which I find very challenging, but I think they turned out really cute.  The fabric is an blue iridescent jazlyn.  When I saw it, I thought of snow.

Finally, when I was about two years old, my grandmother crocheted a little dress for me.  All the girls in my family have had their photo taken in this dress.  My great-niece Olivia is the latest.I think she's a real cutie.  The dress is over 60 years old!
Guess that's about it for me tonight.  I can't believe it's almost Wednesday already.
