A finish & some WIP's updates

It's Monday, and I'm so glad that it's over. I felt like I was power working today at work.. Head down and full steam ahead. Crazy, I tell ya, just crazy! Got lots done though.

I had a pretty good stitching week last week. I finished my ornament...I'm going to finish it as a cube I think. To large to be a pillow one for the tree, so I think I'll make it into a cube with a nice ribbony bow, and put it on one of the tables in the family room. (In case you didn't know I'm a christmas junkie!!! My house looks like Christmas central by the time I'm finished with it...two trees...one with the family ornies, the big shiny tree, and then I have a craft tree, with nothing on it but X-stitched ornaments!) You'll see when I post pics. I am already excited about Christmas. LOL



Design : Holly and Berries
Designer: Little House Needleworks
Stitched on 28 ct Cameo Lugana using recommende fibres

I was going to stitch this over 1, but once I put in the first few stitches on that it was a quick decision to give up on that! No thanks! As nice as it would have been, it's just as nice this way :)

I also worked on my Neighbourhood SAL and put a few stitches into ROS. She is going to be my focus piece for this week. No other stitching planned until Sunday. So hopefullyyyy.........




So that's it for today. I'm off to have a little something to eat, and then to settle in with some tv and ROS.

All of them look fantastic. I'm so miserably behind on the SAL, I didn't get any progress in it again this weekend. I think I need to change my day as Sundays are not working!

I'm looking forward to your christmas pictures as well as hopefully a happy dance with ROS soon!

Beautiful stitching Barbi! I just adore Holly & Berries, it will make a perfect cube.

Your stitching is lovely. Congratulations on your ornament finish. A cube is a lovely idea. I finished one of the Blue Ribbon freebies that way and it is just gorgeous.
