Showing Off

I stitched this for Anna and Kirk. :)

I used a piece of 28 count light gray Jobelan and DMC 498 and 3865. I also randomly stitched a "top leg" using a strand of opalescent Kreinik blending filament. I used the same DMC colors for the cording.

Trick or Treat!!!

I love this ornie! Its so cute. I really like how it turned out. I still need to work on my ornie-making techniques though.

I used a whole skein of DMC 51 (variegated) for the handle. This is my best attempt at making cording so far.

Dragon Dreams Happy Dance

Whooohooo my dear readers! I have another happy dance. :) I started this cutie last night and I put in the last stitches as soon as I got home from work. He is the newest freebie from Dragon Dreams. He stitches up really quick and he is such a cutie.

I really wanted to stitch an ornie for Halloween and this one was perfect.

An ornie needs a reverse side, so I decided to stitch this:

I used the same orange floss from the Dragon Dreams design and used the alphabet from TW's English Cottage Sampler. It could have been better, but I like it. I'm still working on the "finishing" part of it. Stay tuned. I might have a fully finished ornie pic by tomorrow night. :)

Yay me!!!

First of all, one big hello to my 8 readers!!!! How is everybody doing? I haven't abandoned blogging, there just hasn't been anything to blog about... plus I'm lazy. ;)

Anyway, I finally, finally finished Fox Hollow by Bent Creek. It took a while as I had to stitch an ornie for a co-worker who got married last weekend. The project was supposed to be quick and easy, but after realizing that I chose the wrong colors (I was almost done with all the stitching), I had to start all over again.

Without further ado, may I present Fox Hollow:
