Another week, and I have made a bit more progress. This is such a good motivator for me to have to report each week. I might actually get these done this year! I have the yarn basket almost complete, just need a couple more pine needles and it will be done.
I started a bit on the ornamental pins while I had the dark green loaded up.
I got a bit done on the scissors ornament too.
The tomato pin cushion calls for outlining in brown, but I think I’ll leave that off. It doesn’t really need it, does it?
So many commenters mentioned cross stitch last week, that I thought I’d show you the only completed cross stitch piece I still have. I think I stitched this in the early 90s. It is a Victorian porch, and it hangs on the wall at my office. The kit made the whole house and garden with a tree, but when I got this far I thought that I’d had enough!
The top of the porch has wonderful details. Darker colors indicate shadows.
There is a rocking chair and little sleeping kitty on the porch.
As promised, last week I told you all that I would give away my second set of the Sew Happy ornaments. So, the random number generator to the task!
Winner is Sharon! Congratulations and I’ll be sending you an email to get your address!

I’ve done a chair seat cover, that I need to remove and gently wash now, it’s so old and dusty! and I have some crewel needlepoint chair covers that I bought at a thrift store that I need to sit and work on, you’ve inspired me! I got to thinking that I need to be doing something in the eve’s while I watch TV to avoid the munchies…. and hexie work was getting a bit boring.”
Stitching today while the football games are on, Go Panthers!
One other note, I found out this week that if you comment using an AOL email address, it will refuse to deliver my response. So to the two ladies that I was not able to respond to by email, you are both AOL and I did try. Thank you for your comments.
