Two finishes






Two finishes. I started a stocking for my
son a couple of years ago. I decided to
finish the piece differently. I made a
pillow with his name and made the other
portion into an ornament. The detail in
the ornament is so pretty. I knew I wouldn't
finish the stocking and sometimes we
just have to use a little creativity. Not the
first time I have done this. The last
picture is my Dog Boomer. She is outside
the door waiting to come in. We have had
so much snow. I don't ever remember having
a winter with this much snow.

I started a new blog for coupon trading

I have started a new blog for coupon trading.
I searched the web and there really isn't any
good sites to trade some coupons. Not everyone
uses the same items and trading would be a
great idea. It only takes a couple of people to
get some good trades. Please click here to
see the new blog.

Mistletoe Reindeer - Ornament





Pattern by Sharon Bennett aka It's DaffyCat.
This is my first beaded trim. I must say
it is very pretty. It is a time consuming
project. This was made for a
Reindeer exchange. I adore the design.
Here is the best part, this is a Freebie.
If you would like a copy click here.
If you need instructions on how to
finish a beaded item, Staci has great
instructions at Snippets and Stash.
Click here for instructions. I will have
to make one for myself since this will
be sent to an exchange partner.

My first finish of 2011



This is the first finish of 2011. The pattern
is by LHN - Sunflower. Sunflowers are
one of my favorite flowers. I made this
into a small pillow. The fabric to finish is
very pretty and has different flowers with
sunflowers included. I have been going
through many trials and I needed a
ray of sunshine. This makes you smile.
I look forward to spring and summer.
