Short & Sweet!

Not a lot to post today. I;ve been busy working on my two Valentine exchange pieces. There both stitched, so it;s on to the fun part now trying to make them presentable. Sorry no piccies until after the 14th as both recipients are bloggers.

A little up-date on my Cranberry bird. I know it;s not much but as I tell myself every stitch counts..lol.


This cute little Ornie is a result of a change of plans. Regular readers will know that I had started stitching I;ll always be a Wildflower by Sam Sarah Designs as this years SAL with my stitching Sis Elaine. It wasn;t really working as a SAL so we have now decided we are doing Ornies from the Just Cross-stitch Ornaments magazines. This little guy was my choice for January.
Hope everyone is having a nice week-end. Hugs!

I think if I were stitching over one I'd only do a few stitches a day!!!! It's well worth it though - looks great!

Your reindeer ornament is so lovely! Those light on him...! :)

The Cranberry "blue"bird is nice, too. I also stitched this pattern once and liked it a lot.

Looking forward to see your Valentine's pieces. Usually I do not stitch anything for this day, but last year and mad an exception and now I am already looking for a nice, simple piece to stitch to my boyfriend :)
