Well, making a WIPocalypse list seems to have spurred me on to some new stitches.
I picked up my Jardin Prive - Sampler des Bouquets and finished another section. I love working on this one but get bored with it easily. I am on Part III and hope to have this finished the first of the year.
I picked up the latest Band Sampler that arrived. This one is based on Drawn Thread bands. I picked a few bands from Toccato Two and stitched away. What a beautiful sampler this is.
Browsing around in my basket I found this one tucked in the side. The color appealed to me and I pulled it out. I worked on it most of the weekend and tonight. Before I knew it, it was finished. Oh why did I procrastinate so long. This is JBW Teddy Bear and I will frame this as a birth sampler. The fabric is a beautiful mauve Sparklies cut that was gifted to me.
And Dani and I decided on an ornament exchange this year. She has emailed me that she received the ornament I sent her and here it is. Handsome fella isn't he! It is laying on a piece of the backing fabric.
I would like to take a minute and thank all the wonderful people who stopped by and commented on my blog lately. I have been very remiss in posting and reading and commenting on blogs and was concerned that my readership may have fallen off. It is nice to know that my blog is still of interest.
Well, the Christmas rush is in full swing and there are lots of events taking place these days.
Leo and I will be hosting 6 couples for Christmas dinner - Arizona retirement style - potluck! Since none of us will be going home to spend the holidays with our families this year, we will get together and celebrate the season the best we can.
Until next time, I hope the smell of all that wonderful Christmas baking and all those smiling faces don't tempt a single frog your way.
