The smell of snow is in the air in North Idaho. I love snow at Christmas December 26Th I'm done with it LOL. I've been stitching up the BBD stockings for my Mom. I've finished Poppy and I'm pretty happy with it.

Today I finished Pear Tree by LHN. This design is from the 2006 Ornament Edition of Just Cross Stitch. I've changed some of the colors in it and really like the way it turned out. I'm still on the fence on what it will be once finished. I picked this design for the Little House Needlework's Ornament SAL group. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! I will update you with some more stockings hopefully by the end of the week!

BBD Poppy Stocking

Here is my current WIP from Sweet August by Blackbird Designs. This is for my Mom she picked 4 stockings she would like to have for her tree. I just started this last night so it has about 2 hours into it so far and it's going pretty quick. I'm still working on Christmasland, but since Christmas is just around the corner I figured I better get a stocking or two done at least! I am nervous about doing the actual stocking part of it, but I'm sure I'll figure it out. Please excuse the pictures..they were taken with my phone.

Party Animals

Here are the little party-goers on Halloween night. We didn't trick-or-treat as all of the candy collected went to the Switch Witch. Josephine was Poison Ivy from Batman..and a little upset everyone thought she was a fairy. She kept saying...I'm a bad girl! LOL She had successfully worn off part of her make up by flipping her hair out of her can no longer see the paint detail above her eyes. Isabelle was Cleopatra and was sewn pretty tightly in that toga. Coy was Optimus Prime. We have a great little community center and they had games and prizes. It was a fun night over all and when they woke up Sunday morning to their new toys it was well worth giving up the candy!
