'Tis a Small Gift

I just completed Erica Michaels' 'tis a small gift scissor fob! It has put me in the mood for the holidays! This little gem is going to Gentle Pursuits EGA Ornament Exchange this coming Saturday. We are having a nice holiday luncheon and ornament exchange. It is always a great time! I can't wait to see what ornament I get in the exchange!

This ornament is stitched on 30 count silk gauze using Gentle Arts Simply Wool! I love how it turned out!

Ho, Ho, Ho,! Happy "Holly"days,

My Progress on Elizabeth J. M. Mears Sampler

I've enjoyed stitching on Elizabeth. I haven't made too much progress, but at least I can see how all the colors are melding together!

I'm stitching on 36 count, rather than 32 count that is called for on the pattern. I'm stitching on Lakeside Linen Vintage Examplar with the called for Needlepoint Inc. Silks:) Just lovely.

I understand Ellen Chester of With My Needle is doing this sampler as one of her Stitch-a-Longs for 2011. Great choice, Ellen!

Happy Stitches,
