One More Ornimentification


Whew!  I realized I didn't have an ornament for my son's stocking, so I whipped up this Prairie Schooler freebie the other day while watching Christmas movies and ornimentified it this morning. : )  All done and ready now, and only one more sleep til Christmas!!  (And I get to watch Muppet Christmas Carol tonight... YAY!!!!)

Some Ornaments Ornimentified

Don't you just love that word "ornimentified"??  It's about as confusing as saying "I'm going to finish some finishes." :)  But that's what I did today - well, this afternoon, cuz that's how long it took for me to get up the courage to start!  I needed to do some flat finishes, and since I'd only done one up to this point I was a little nervous... but I like how they turned out!  Here's the group shot...


The cow and the horse were stitched by my husband.  He gets the cow in it's "ornimentified" form (there's that handy word again!) for Christmas and I get to keep the little "Friends" one. (LK chart)  The other two will find their way into my daughters' stockings.

On the actual stitching front I started the HAED "Little Drummer Boy" stocking this week and I'm close to finishing the first column on the first page.  Yay!   It's working up smaller than I expected, since I've already reached the back of the donkey.  Shall we guess how long it will take for me to finish it???  Hmmm....  I'd love to be done with it by the end of March, but I just saw the sneak peek of the new LHN series and it's about SHEEP!  Must stitch.  So that will mean the stocking will take a little longer.  There is that little thing of finding the $$ to buy the adorable sheep-ies and supplies, though, so I might not have to worry about it!! : )

Here's my start.  All together now...  Ooooooo.....  Aaaaaaahhh...  (What is it?????)  : )  Hopefully there will be a little more to look at next week! : )


Thanks for dropping by this week!  Your comments make my day. : )

Long Time No Post

Hi everyone!

Are you all ready for Christmas?  We decorated a few days after Thanksgiving and I've been wrapping presents and watching Christmas movies and generally just enjoying the joy of the Holy Season.  It's such a gift to be able to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus!

Since my last post I've been working on another Work in Progress in my pile - a Precious Moments piece that I meant for one of the charity quilt organizations... but I cut the fabric too small.  UGH.  Oh well, it's cute anyway and I just put the last stitches in it last night.  Yippee!   I wonder who's having a little girl soon??


As soon as I finish this post I am going to go kit up the first page of my new start...


I am SO excited to start this! (And I can, even though it wasn't on next year's list, because it isn't next year yet!!! LOL!)  I bought it at the 45% off sale and I think it will be SO pretty.  It will be my first time trying the 25 count over 1 for this large of a project, so I hope I won't make too many mistakes.  I can't imagine frogging it!!

All right, I'm off to play with my stitching!

Thanks for stopping by!
