The tryouts for Martina's mystery projects usually are released prior to the main charts. She did release this one last year.....I'm just getting to the finishing on this one. I just needed a little something to finish and found this one:

This was a very nice Christmas indeed. My father always asks for a list of things we would like, and then hands it over to my sister to do his shopping! :) This year I actually had something, other than stitching items on my list. It was Jim Shore's Mini Nativity. Take a peek:
It just makes me smile to look at it! Thanks, Dad!
I also received a beautiful locket from my husband and sons, Sam and Mike. It is engraved on both the front and back. One side has "Annie" (our dog) and the other "Harmony" (my little girl kitty), both of whom we lost this month. Inside is a picture of each of them. As soon as the sun is shining, I will get a better picture. One of those presents I will always treasure.

These are just turning out too cute!! I am making an ornament for my sons, Sam and Mike, for this Christmas. Here's the first one...(still has to be made into an ornament)
And the second one....
These little letters are a really quick stitch:))
Ooops!! Forgot to say that these were from the Prairie Schooler Christmas Alphabet booklet.

Well, now it at least looks like a reindeer....
So far, this one has been fun to stitch. I am trying to think of a way to finish it. If there are going to be eight reindeer in this series, it might be nice to group them all together. Hmmm....maybe flat folds?

Well, that is all that's really there.... this is one of Nora Corbett's reindeer....I just have his "butt" stitched right now. This one seems to be moving quickly (and as soon as I say that, it will slow down). I was in the mood for something "Christmasy" to stitch, so decided to work on this one. He is a nice change of pace from the mandalas.

Yep....just couldn't resist....too many pretty colors and the first part of the design is gorgeous! It's Chatelaine Designs, Hawaiian Garden. I've only got a small portion of it done. I decided to do this one with a few of the silk threads I already had and the rest with DMC.
I received some lovely Christmas presents from Isabelle. Thank you so much! You just do not know how much they mean to me....here's a picture of everything...
and another of just the inside of the book that she made...
Just too wonderful!! Thank you, thank you:))

Here's a little freebie from the Cross Eyed Cricket, the s'mores mitten. I did not use the recommended fabric...in hindsight I think I should have backstitched the outine.
and another one!! This is also by the Cross Eyed Cricket Collection...the Second Day of Christmas ornament....
