A bit of progress

Not much stitching going on in my neck of the woods the last week.   I have managed a few snow flakes on my Jingle All the Way.    I hope to finish up the cross stitches by the end of the weekend.....if holiday decorating doesn't take all the starch out of me.


I have another nifty thing to share.   My kids find the most unique gifts.   This is from my DD#1.  Can you guess what it is?    Yes, it is a grape vine ball with bits of fiber stuck in it.   But for what purpose?   It is to hang outside for the birds to pick from to make nests!   Cool.....I always throw my orts around the yard in the early spring and then smile on the inside when I see a nest with a bit of krenik or DMC in it.    I think I will use this for my orts too.   I will have the prettiest birds nests in the neighborhood.

Aren't those snowflakes fun? Your jingle looks great! Remember to take pictures in the spring of the pretty nests!

I love your Jingle stitching and was wondering who the designer is for this one? And the fiber ball is just a wonderful gift from your DD.

I have looked at this chart many times wishing I was a seasonal stitcher. Maybe some day. I really like your color choice in linen.

Your daughter in a genius! That is so cool. Ask her if I can borrow that one!
