Productive Sunday with my daughters and mom.

Me and my mom decided last week that we would spend today together and do some crafting with my daughters. Off course I brought something that I wanted to get done and decided to do some actual finishing on some of the things that have been stitched up and then put away. I am very happy about how much I actually got done.

First I finished this pinkeep. I left it at my moms since it is a gift for someone. I am not saying who, just in case that person reads my blog. I am pretty sure that she doesn’t, but I want to be safe.
I stitched this design by Margaret Sherry years ago! Never got around to making it into anything though. So I decided to make a pinkeep out of it and love how it turned out.

Lately I have been thinking about my stitching and how little I actually have of it. I seem to give almost everything I make away. So, I decided that I would start collecting ornaments that I make for myself. Stitched ornaments preferably. When I went through my box of stitched things I found a couple of projects that were just perfect for ornaments so I brought them along and finished them up!

Christmas Tree Ornament

Design by Helga Mandl. Stitched on 36ct Opalescent White Linen with DMC 4045 with a silver heart on top and silver/clear beads as snowflakes. Stitched in 2007.

Christmas Tree Ornament

From 2007 JCS Ornament issue. Design by Charland Designs Inc. Stitched in 2007.

I already have two finished ornaments! YAY! I have this vision of a real tree (I don’t like the fake ones) with lots of stitched and hand finished ornaments on it. One day, that vision is going to come true 🙂

I hope you all had a great weekend!

    Oh, I have the same dream of that tree. But I know, every year when I put out all the things I always have on my christmas tree, I can not leave only one
    thing in the box. I think they are all waiting the whole year to hang at the tree to make me happy. So,
    if I would add more things, I need a tree as big as a tree for a cathedral.
    Your work is sooo nice and I am here for a little visit
    every day.
    Bis morgen, Gruß von Anja aus Deutschland
