Finally Another Post!

Small Token
Blackbird Designs
Crescent Colors and DMC floss
32 ct Belfast Linen-Country Cream (?)
Yes, I have really been stitching-all kinds of stitching! Here is the latest cross stitch finish-I have seen this one on many blogs and just loved it everytime. I did substitute some GAST Blue Dungarees for the bird. I didn't have the correct Crescent Colors in my stash and didn't care for the DMC conversion colors. Also, pink is my favorite color-so any design with pink works!

I am busy with Christmas stitching already. I like to make an ornament for each of my 3 daughters. Plus one for my guild ornament exchange. Plus one for my first organized exchange thru JAT. Plus 2 personal exchanges I am doing. Plus, I would like to do a couple for myself. That makes 9 ornaments so far. Once I get these done I will get back to my larger projects.

Here is some more stitching I have been doing. It is my second attempt at a scarf. DH and grandson are already admiring it and saying they like it better than my first one. :) I got the yarn on sale at JoAnn's.

Now here is my first attempt at magic loop knitting. It is a hat-well, right now, it is the beginning of a hat! I have stopped after my first loop to take it to the yarn shop and make sure I am on the right track before going further. And I have already signed up for my first sock class! I will keep you posted!

Very funny that your boys like the improvement in your knitting. It sounds to me that you are going to have a very busy run up to Christmas.
