This is the Christmas Pine Pocket by Moss Creek Designs. I made this one for myself and I really think it came out pretty nice. I do think a smaller bow would have been better but, I had these premade ones and they were the ones I used. It was a lot of fun stitching and a little tough putting together but, all in all I like it. The back is below this entry.

I've been making my needles smoke lately. I've got four more ornaments and another christmas project that I've been working on hard. This is the ornament that was in both of the Just Cross Stitch magazines. The center of this was in the Christmas ornament preview magazine and the bottom was in the Christmas Orniment Issue of this year. This ornament is like the monthly ornaments that are sent out by Nordic Needle. This one will be given away at my EGA Christmas Brunch

I belong to a yahoo group where one of the owners is a designer. This was the design that was just finished. If you look close there is an owl in the middle of the tree and a rabbit to the left of the tree's roots. Each section is a different stitch and this is all your own colors. Such a lot of fun, I will frame it this week.

Here is the first in a year of hardanger Christmas Ornaments through Nordic Needle. This is a wonderful club where they send you all the material and once a month they send you a new pattern. I know it doesn't show well but, this is actually two ornaments sewed together to make one. I could have left them as two but, decided they look a lot better together.

I've been absent for awhile, been busy with summer things and my arthritis has been kicking up lately too. Haven't been doing a lot of stitching but, I thought you all would like to see a real beauty in my garden. This year she is out doing herself. Her colors are so rich and you can smell her sweet smell all over the back yard. Happy summer every one.

Yesterday, it rained all day and was very cold and windy. I decided it was a perfect day to finish Eva Owl into a wall hanging. Here she is, all done. I was able to get some very pretty quilted fabric and the patterend fabric is reversible to the red. The light green is almost a celery and it matches the light green in the patterend fabric. All in all I am very happy with the way it came out mostly because I don't even remotely consider myself a seemstress (I say awful things to my sewing machine). I will put together the dowel rod and ends and hang it this weekend.

This is Eva and Eva is an owl in a contest that I have entered. JMD Designs made the owl pattern and whoever entered did the rest. I will be finishing her into a wall hanging with some very pretty quilt fabric that I found. Lots of fun and I thought she came out pretty good.

This is one that I got done earlier this month and just didn't get the time to post it. I have the box that is on the cover and Spring Stitches is in it at the moment. I am working on I believe the Fall Stitches and will try to get Winter in too. I would like to get some of my seasonal series done from various designers. I have way to many just sitting, need to get some done.
