New start, finish and a Christmas surprise

It has been getting unnerving waiting for the New Year and the Crabby SAL. I just want Christmas to be over and it to be 2009 and let me begin stitching! ROFL I desperately needed something new, so yesterday I started a little ornament for a somebody special. She sometimes reads my blog so I can't post a photo...but I can give you a hint:


Yes, my new start has loads of beads! Here they are in my Tacky BOB. Do you use a BOB? That is the handiest thing for working with beads! Click the link and scroll 1/2 way down the page to lookity. I never lose beads now!

I finished up the ornament in no time flat so my new start is now a finish. It turned out so nice too. Hum, now what to do?

A Christmas Surprise!
Look what was in my mailbox. Wow, it is a Christmas present from my floss kid Lisa, in Scotland! She sent me a beautiful stitched kitty ornament, a box of fudge (nearly GONE already) and a kit from my wish list! I love those hieland coos! Can you see how the fabric on the ornament is sparkly? Oh, I just love everything!



Thank you so very much, Lisa. You are such a sweetie!

Just LOVE your cats--and your masthead is wonderful. You must have a grand old time when you go to England! Have you been to Eton? They have a whole store filled with nothing but cat stuff!

What a lovely surprise, that cow is adorable! I love my Tacky Bob, I don't know how I managed without it...

I know how antsy I can get when I have to wait to start a project. I usually do it as a reward to myself for finishing the current one, but it takes willpower to hold off.

I'll have to check out the Bob thing. Working with beads is kind of frustrating for me.

Lovely gifts from your 'daughter'. Enjoy!

Tacky BoB's are a MUST when stitching Mirabilias and Lavender and Lace designs.

Love, love, LOVE mine!
