I have packed my stitching bag - well two bags - full of supplies and ideas. How many I will actually get done is anybody's guess but I do have two RR's to do. I hope to have some progress photos when I return.

This is the very first piece of cross stitch I ever did. I can't tell you where the pattern came from or the date. The saying under the striped cat is "You are what you eat." It was a very dusty piece hanging in obscurity, so I took it out of the frame, washed it and stitched it into a little pillow. The fabric on the back is black with little paw prints. New life for an old piece.

Here is the latest from the General Ornament Round Robin. This is Ursula Michael's Snowman Mitten from 2005 Just Cross Stitch. It was a pleasure to stitch. I love her snowmen. They always have such sweet faces and character. I am now finished with my round robins until the next one arrives in the mail. The debate becomes - what shall I pick up next? - my neglected wreath of flowers, my cursed Christmas tree or that blasted 18 count navy Christmas stocking. You can tell I am not really enthusiastic about any of them but they do need to be stitched. Maybe I can look for something new or maybe I should try this rotation business and that way I need only work on each one a short time.
