Christmas Elves Have Been Working!

I just noticed that my last blog was October 31. Shocking! The time has absolutely whizzed by. Shipping finished ornaments has been the biggest "time eater" as well as trying to get  a few quilts off to my quilter extraordinaire so she doesn't run out of projects during the holidays. And, there are the customers who decide that they need a new needlepoint project. Then there was cooking for Thanksgiving - and, more needlepoint design - and, EGADS - the holidays were upon me!

A few samples of what I have been working on since October 31.

 Lots of ornaments in many different styles all designed by yours truly.

A 70th birthday remembrance for a couple - one for each child's Christmas tree.

A special 100th year Cookie Day commemoration ornament for family members. For this family 1000's of cookies baked and frosted the day after Thanksgiving are a tradition all the way from Germany. A fresh cookie will be slipped into the open stockings upon delivery.

Baseball mitts for my 6 year old grandson and granddaughter - their first year! Both loved it.

A  copy of an iron front gate - in needlepoint.
For a UNC Tarheel baseball team member. Go Tarheels!

And, practically all moms of boys everywhere know who this guy is wearing his tool belt.

Now I will search out Christmas stockings. And wrap gifts. And make cookies. And clean the house. And, maybe sleep!
