Here is His Eye.
I'm so close, yet so far from being finished. So many more motifs to go. See?
Yup, lots more motifs to repeat! Including another big bird. Ugh.
Here are my fussy cut star halves, both mystery fabrics. (Only two more Fridays to go!)
I thought the numbers were fun, and everyone needs at least one polka dot star, right?
I never do exchanges, as you may have noticed. But Paula of Kelmscott Designs persuaded me earlier this year that we should do an ornament exchange that is sampler based. So we did. This is what I sent to Paula. It's a design from the 2014 JCS ornament issue by Cherished Stitches. The fabric it's on is the backing. (I think it's a Minick and Simpson fabric from the Wiscassett collection.)
And look at what Paula sent me!
Paula said the design was a French freebie. I just love her finishing and the hornbook too! Thanks again Paula! It was so much fun to do this with you! I hadn't finished finished anything in so long -- I'm so glad I could find my cording tool! lol!
The father type and I went out to our local charity Christmas tree lot yesterday to get a tree. I'm not sure Mia was quite happy about it.
But she grudgingly watched the activities.
We are going to wait to decorate the tree until the boy child is home. Hopefully the girl child will come and help too.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week. Less than two weeks till Christmas!!!
