I found out that my ornament I sent to Sharon for our 2010 Ornament Swap was received, so I get to share with you another finish - yahoo! I am so glad that she received it and likes it. Sharon now has 5 new ornaments to adorn her Christmas tree in 11 months (didn't we just take down the tree?).
The ornament was a design from the 2009 JCS Ornament issue. In the magazine, it was stitched all in white, but I decided to use some hand dyed fabric (I used blue food coloring and it turned a pinky/lavendar...go figure) and stitch it in a red theme. I used varigated reds as well as adding some Krenik blending filament in red. It was a fun stitch!
Looking at the calendar it is hard to believe that January is just about over. Next month both boys have a hockey tournament...in two different places during the same weekend. DH will be travelling with Matthew (younger son) to Phoenix and I will be travelling with Robert (older son) to Pittsburgh. It has been a while since we all have had to travel at one time - but that is the life of our hockey family. Any readers in Pittsburgh? When I travel for these activities, it is fun to see if there are any blog friends in the cities we visit for hockey tournaments.
Well...not much else going on...so I will end this posting for now. Hope everyone is having a good week!
Remember to Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often! Lisa
