Isn't it beautiful!!! The tassle (which didn't come out too well in the photos) was created out of rich maroon, gold and forest green thread, which coordinates very well with the glittery ribbon she used for the hanger. The design is called Candy Cane Wishes from the designer Plum Pudding Needlearts. Thank you so much Angela, I cannot wait to put it on our Christmas Tree, which we will get set up the weekend after Thanksgiving.
Other Stitching Ramblings...
I am working on two personal Christmas Ornament exchanges right now (one for Angela and one for Heather), so I cannot show anything that I am stitching on. I was able to make it to the post office to get the CindyMae Quaker Christmas Ornament models in the mail to Cindy yesterday, so she should have them early next week. News regarding the Friendship Sampler RR...it looks like the first of 16 is on its way home. Little by little, this RR will be winding down. Mine will probably be one of the last ones completed as I had to re-introduce mine into the mix due to an early mis-hap, but maybe...just maybe...we will all have ours home before the first of the year.
Aside from some other little personal things I would like to stitch for holiday gifts, most of my committed stitching projects are complete, so I am getting closer to starting MW. I think that I will be doing it as a SAL with Valerie (are you ready, Valerie?).
Other Activities...or should I say "Hockey Update"
We are in peak hockey seasons for both boys. This weekend, we will be watching Robert (older son) & his hockey team play a game today. This is their first official "league" game - the other games he has been playing have either been exhibition/scrimmages or tournament games. It should be a good one today. Tomorrow, again Robert will have a morning practice followed by a exhibition/scrimmage...then in the afternoon Matthew (younger son) has a game. This is typical of our weekends around here - until about March or April depending on how the boys and their teams do.
Well...off to getting things around for the Saturday game (water bottles, recovery food, etc). So, hope you all have a good weekend! And remember...
Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch Often! Lisa
