Introducing Sweeney

My husband went to a gun show this past Saturday and this is what he brought home. This little guy is 1/2 chihuahua, 1/4 rat terrier and 1/4 fox terrier. He weighs 1 3/4 lbs and his name is Sweeney which is galic for little hero. Sweeney was born on September 3. Sweeney says hi to everyone out there.

Christmas Ornaments

I've started my Christmas ornies and have gotten two out of the four done. These two came out of the book Christmas Trimmings In Hardanger Embroidery by Rosalyn Watnemo. One of these will be going to a couple that let my hubby stay at their house for a few days this summer while he metel detected. The other will be going to an Christmas ornie exchange.

Fraidy Frog

Fraidy Frog probably was my favorite to do. He is a Just Nan and the pattern is in this year's Just Cross Stitch magazine. I put him in one of Just Nan's WhimZi frames. I had a lot of fun doing all these ornaments this year. This is the last one so, now I am starting my Christmas ornies. I've got four to do and all of them will be given away.

This was another Mill Hill kit and it didn't take any time at all to do. I really enjoyed doing the Mill Hill kits this year. They had quite a few and they were all really cute. Also I love how quick and easy they were.

Pumpkin Trio

Here is one of the three that I just finished. This is Pumpkin Trio and it's a Mill Hill kit. It's got a lot of 1/4 stitches and it's done on black. It was a little harder than the other ones but, it came together quick.
