Caffe' Latte Progress

I started this a week or two ago. It is Caffe' Latte from Little House Needleworks. When it is finished it is going to go on a box lid. The box is papier mache' and I will be painting it in colors to complement the needlework, and the coffee theme. The box is going to be a gift for one of my co-workers. I am really enjoying working on this, and the neat thing is, I think there will be enough thread left over to do another one if I want to at some point, for myself. I got the chart and thread from 123Stitch. I really like ordering from them. They are always very quick to get the order out, and are very nice people.

Christmas Cardinal

I just finished my August ornament for the Christmas Ornament SAL. It is called Christmas Cardinal. I stitched it from a book called 100 Cross-Stitch Christmas Ornaments, by Carol Siegal and the Dimensions Design Studio. The book is from 1991.

Christmas Ornament SAL

A couple of days or so ago I joined a Christmas SAL group that I found while poking around on-line. I love stitching Christmas ornaments and I have started, and made good progress on the one for this SAL. The SAL's are the 4th week of each month, and we can stitch from the themes listed on the blog, or we can choose our own. I will post a photo of mine as soon as it is finished, which I am hoping will be tomorrow.

I have also added a few more blogs to my favorite links section. I will be adding more later.

Some crafting stuff

I have been doing some stitching this week but do not have any pictures. I have also been doing some crafting with felt. I have been making mini-pennies from Button Stitch Designs, and have been having a lot of fun doing it. I finished two from the Autumn set, with two more to go. Then I have a set of four Christmas ones to do. I love making things from felt, especially Christmas ornaments, which I will be doing soon.

Stitching but no pictures to post

I have done a good amount of stitching this week, just don't have a photo to show for it. It is a larger project that won't fit in my scanner and I don't have a digital camera, although that is definitely on my wish list. So, I have been on here doing maintenance type stuff-adding links, etc. I will probably add more soon, now that I have remembered again how to do it.

I really enjoyed my vacation days I took last week. I did a lot of stitching and reading, and watched a lot of movies, just as I had planned on doing. I hung around home for the most part and just relaxed, and it was heaven!
