A few years ago one of my best friends
gave me this beautiful Crystal Mistletoe.
I had to post. I had never seen anything
like it before. The sparkle is amazing.
Now mind you, I have no one to kiss
under any mistletoe. Single in this
chapter of my life.

Follow your Art

31st Finish of the year. The pattern
is by Raise the Roof Designs. My
sister sent me this pattern as a
gift. What a perfect design to make
and ornament for my daughter who
attends Fashion Inst. of Technology
in NYC. Done on linen. The
little buttons are so cute. For the
paint brush I changed the button
in the instructions and added the
heart which looks just great.

29th and 30th finish

This is the 8th finish from the 2010 JCS
ornament issue. Both pieces were done
on opalescent linen, one of my favorites.
One i did in blue, the other in Red. This
is the 29th and 30th finish of the year.
I had 4 teeth pulled on thursday so on
the brighter side I have had time for more
stitching. Yes my mouth hurts, but I am
thankful I am healthy and alive.
Which one was your favorite the blue or red?

NYC Chocolate Show - 11-11-10

On November 11, 2010 I met my sister and
her husband in NYC for the annual Chocolate Show.
Neither one of us had ever attended. I have been
to many food shows in the city, so we were
expecting a huge place with dozens upon
dozens of vendors. This show was different.
Much smaller then we anticipated. The treat
to this show all the vendors give samples of the
chocolate. This is the good and expensive
chocolate. We at a lot - Yumm Ohhhh.
These are a couple of pictures that my
daughter took on her fabulous camera.
I did buy some goodies and sad to say it
is all gone already. If you are a chocolate
lover like myself , you would enjoy this
little show. They had a bunch of sculptures
made out of chocolate. The train was my
favorite. The show is each November.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

7th finish from the JCS 2010 Ornament issue

this is the 7th ornament completed from
the JCS 2010 ornament issue. I really
like this ornament and stitching went
really quick. Not as hard as it looks. I
made this for a gift. As soon as I
saw this ornament I knew I would
stitch it for them. I added mill hill beads
for the snow. 28th finish of the year. The
backing fabric is Moda. Added sparkle trim
for the finish. I am tempted to keep this one
we will see.

JCS 2010 ornament issue cross finish

6th finish from the 2010 JCS ornament issue.
The cross is so pretty. I added crystals and
the sparkle is really hard to see in the picture.
It was a challenge working on this piece.
I also picked up my LHN bless your home
from the framer. I adore this piece.
This was the 27th finish of the year.

JCS 2010 Make a wish ornie

Make a wish ornament . I did not
put in the make a wish. I didn't
care for it. I did add swarovski
crystals to the piece instead of
mill hill beads. The sparkle is
pretty and adds to the piece.
This is in the JCS 2010 ornament
issue. Done on white linen. The
pink in this piece is great. What
a cute fairy. The second piece is
snoopy. I finally made him into a
card. Both pieces will be gifts.
Happy Stitching. 5th
from the magazine. 25
th finish
of the year.
