This is my latest finish. Since I have so few finishes, this is exciting. I am trying to get some of my stitching done for the holiday's so I can send them off to a finisher and have them back before I need them. This is a La-D-Da pattern from the Just Cross Stitch ornament preview magazine. This is some of my tea dyed fabric from Joann's. I believe it is 32 count and I stitched this over one using Fall Maple from Artfabric. I am going to have this made into a needle book for a friend. I am also going to stitch one of the motif's so I can have a matching scissor fob made. This is an easy project and only took me two evenings. I am thinking about stitching it again for an exchange. I have some Vicki Clayton thread in red that would make a beautiful Christmas ornament. I would also like to stitch this on some really nice linen. This crap from Joann's is all I have until I make my way to one of the cross stitch shops or get online and order something.

The bunny is my travel project. It has been hanging out in my stitching bag for a couple of years. I want to get this done and out of the bag. It is cute & colorful. This is a punch needle project by Charlotte Dudney done in DMC floss. Let me tell you, punch needle eats thread. The pattern suggests using Weeks Dye Works for this pattern. Unless you consider punch needle projects heirloom pieces, buy DMC. I think I priced out the threads and it was going to be something like $40.00. It takes 20 skeins of floss. This project is more an effort in threading the punch needle rather than fun do.

This weekend we are going to be in a car a lot. I am not sure if I will finish my punch needle project or work on something more fun. I think it is going to be in the 90's until next week so that should make me stay in and stitch some.

A happy thought...We are half way through the work week!! Kelly


  1. I love that Ornie! It's almost worth buying the preview issue.... well almost!

  2. Very cute ornie! And I really like your bunnies - very colorful and if you work on them, you'll have them finished for next Easter.
