Been Gift Stitching

I had a wild idea for a Christmas gift for someone for next year. It is one of the monthly series by Heart in Hand, so while I have been busy stitching, it is gift stitching. Can't post pictures or talk much about it - although I am not sure the recipient visits my blog.

That about covers it for now.

Christmas Ornament 2010

My good friend Sandra reads my blog and noticed I needed a picture of the ornament I sent her. So she sent me this today and I am posting it here. I think this finishes up the Christmas Ornament Parade of 2010.
Mill Hill beaded ornamen kit on perforated paper.
I used black brads to attach it to wool felt and added a ribbon hanger.
THANKS Sandra!!

New Blogger on the Block - update

Turns out I know Debby and I was able to contact her and let her know the commneting problem. She set it up now for people with google profiles to be able to comment. So, you may want to try again. She is very new at this so be patient!

I do not remember what I have my comments set for and may suggest she use that setting - any other tips for her?? I will pass them on, or if you leave them on this post I will let her know to read them. Soon she will get it all figured out.

No pressure Debby, take your time we are here to help.

Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long (TUSAL)

Here is my first post of the year for the TUSAL. This is the jelly jar with pin cushion top I made that I keep by my stitching chair to collect the orts. I have an "official" TUSAL jar for the orts, but I can't find it. I remember cleaning it, but I will be darned if I know where it is. I figure I have until the next new moon to find it (or something else).
