Dragon Ornament - Happy Dance

I finished the Dragon Dreams ornament a few weeks ago, but forgot to post a photo.  I didn't do the words or the border like on the sample.

I also started a new project tonight called Let's Visit Canada.  I'm stitching it because I live in Canada.
Here is my progress from tonight.

Dragon Ornament

I am working on another ornament from the Just CrossStitch 2012 Christmas Ornaments Magazine.  This one is called The Year of the Dragon - by Dragon Dreams.  I had to stop because I ran out of DMC 501 to finish the numbers 1 & 2 for the body.
This is what it should look like when it is finished.  I won't be doing the border.  Not sure if I will add the words or not.

Snowman Ornament - Happy Dance

Today I started and finished stitching a snowman ornament called Heads Up - by CherryWood Design Studio.  I saw the design on a cross stitcher's blog (cannot remember which one).  The pattern can be found in the Just CrossStitch 2012 Christmas Ornaments magazine.  Wilma from my LNS Stitcher's Place let me borrow her copy.  Here is what the ornament will look like when it is completed.

Here are the 3 stitched snowballs... Ready to be assembled at a later date.



Tuesday night at Stitcher's Club, I finished stitching Just Nan's Little Hedgie.  I will assemble all the 3D miniatures (mice and hedgehog) after I finish stitching them all.

Cross Stitching Update  
I haven't been blogging or stitching for a few months.  I have been enjoying the beautiful summer weather reading, gardening, and swimming in a friend's pool.

Gingerbread Angel Mouse is finished. Here is my Happy Dance!!  Tonight I attached the beads to the project.  Here is a photo.

Sewing project - Strawberry Quilted Pot Holder

I did some sewing yesterday.  I disassembled the Aida from the quilted pot holder and attached the finished Strawberry project that I competed on evenweave.  Here is the before and after.

I also did a little more stitching on Just Nan's Gingerbread Angel Mouse.
