A finish and a WIP

The Night Before Christmas
Little Old Me designs
28 ct white Monaco
DMC, Kreinik, MH beads
11/30/08 - 11/30/09
Yeah it is done!! I can't believe it. The words were the easy part, believe it or not. I had fun stitching this and it was a freebie to members of the Needleworkers Haven BB.
HAED Aurora's Garden
25 ct white evenweave
DMC
Then last night I pulled out HAED freebie Aurora's Garden. I really want this done as a Christmas gift but I don't think it will be possible. Maybe if I didn't work or clean or eat. I will try to post a progress every night.

Is everyone ready for Christmas? I have half of Justin's gifts bought. I gave money to my sister to pick up our parent's gift. I stitched the quilt sampler for my MIL but still have not had it sewn into a pillow and realize it is to late to have it sent out to a finisher.

The Night Before Christmas will be sewn on top of fleece and then have the fleece made into a blanket. This will be a Christmas gift but I can't say for who yet. Not sure if that person reads my blog. Although I don't believe so

Nice finish!

Christmas shopping? I need to really get busy. I'd like to get it all done in one day but I don't think that will happen.
