I participated in a Little House Needleworks exchange and this is what  I received from Denise. She made it into a tuffet and it is just gorgeous.She personalized the bottom with her initials and also mine. I think she did a wonderful job. I just love it.

Well, it's that time again. My jar is coming along. I know I haven't posted any pics of finishes to show for it but I have finished up my ornament exchange for LHN and mailed it off. I don't know what I was thinking and didn't get a picture of it. Maybe when the recipient receives it she will post a pic.

I'm working on a couple other things, but haven't taken any progress pics yet. I'm also working a on birth chart for my sister-in-law, she started it about 4 years ago and never finished it. She has been diagnosed with cancer and not doing well, and asked if I could finish it for her. So I'm really putting all my stitching time in to getting that done rather quickly. Just about there.

A Beady Finish

I like to do some beadwork and just haven't had the time or the space since we moved to get all the beads set up, but I decided one day I needed to do something for a friend. She likes the ornaments I make so I thought that would be a quick project. I made this one as it is quicker than doing some with the peyote panels that can take awhile. I wasn't sure after I got it finished if I wanted to give it to her or not, I'm not sure it looks that good. My husband said it looked good to him so she will will probably get it this week. I also made the little angel for her,too.

You can see some more of my beaded ornaments and other beaded things here.

Some Finishes

One day while looking at some blogs on the web I somehow got to Hohla's blog and she was doing a mystery biscornu sal. She designed it and I thought it was a very pretty one. I'm also a little addicted to making these little cushions. I used the same colors she did because I really liked the way they looked together. Out of all the ones I have made this I think is my husbands favorite one because he keeps going on about how well he likes this one.

So Thank you to hohla for the SAL pattern.
