ABC SAL, Xmas Ornie SAL, TQC

WHEW! Talk about a mouth full of letters! I finished Part 9 of Ele's ABC SAL:


Part 10 was just released.....guess what I'm stitching this weekend....among other things - <G>

May's Christmas Ornament SAL challenge was "Reindeer":


This is a design from Cathy Habermann (Hands on Design) and can be found in the "Just Cross Stitch" 2015 Holiday issue.

June's challenge was "Christmas Animals/Pets". When I say this little guy in "The World of Cross Stitching" magazine, #223, I couldn't resist. Isn't he adorable????? (Yes, I'm getting ahead of myself).


Design by Rhona Norrie, WOCS Issue 223

OK - you all know how I don't have anything to do and just sit around bored....SO, thanks to Mary Anne (Magpie's Mumblings) I found a free online TQC - Traditional Quilting Class. Signed up....now waiting for Lesson #3. I don't know if registration has closed, but if you're interested, go visit Kathy Shaw's blog here.

Now....off to stitch....and create.....and stitch some more... BIG <G>

  14. Oh, I do love the reindeer, Kim! Will have to put him on my "must stitch" list :) I have always wanted to learn to quilt, too. Just too busy with working still, but I would love to sign up for something like that series of classes when I retire...

  16. Everything is beautiful, as always. I love that little dog. The UK cross stitch magazines are some of my favorites and I love the cute little animals they so often have in there. Enjoy your stitching!
