I just finished this ornament for my son for christmas.
My kids and I have this inside joke and only they could
understand Bahhhhh Ave. I asked my oldest daughter
what name to use for my son and she said to pick this one.
I like the priceless at the bottom - my own little thought.
This is the original monopoly board I made last year for
my son for christmas. For those who didn't see it.

fuzzy lambs.

This is one of my favorite in the Shepards Bush Series.
They put a new ornament in every Just Cross Stitch ornament
issue each year. I am not crazy about the 2009 one.
It is a bethlehem scene with santa and his reindeer.
I will
leave that part out when I do it. I have no idea what the
designer was thinking when they did that.

Ok, that is me venting. I really think of jesus when I look at this one.

Another completed shepards Bush's Ornament.
I am trying to complete a lot of them in the series

This is an ornament I made for a special family member.
I added two Swarovski Crystals and Fiber to Finish.


This is Hedgie my new pin cushion. How adorable is he.
This purchase was made at Etsy. I love purchasing items
from artists. This is all handmade. If you would like to
purchase one yourself here is the link.

Took the train into New York City today - only about a 45 minute Ride.
Went to one of my favorite places, the garment district. I bought some
amazing cording for finishing my cross stitch projects. No place has a
selection like NYC. There is so much to choose from it is hard to take it
all in because there are so many stores. Only cross stitchers can appreciate this.

Another completed ornament. The lamb- how sweet he is. The Silver border is
really nice. It's hard to pick up in the picture.
