Stitched Ornaments

Last week I mailed off two stitched ornament swaps that I had stitched up earlier in the year.  Both are fringed and backed with felt, I used Heat-n-Bond to fuse the aida, felt and ribbon together in a nice sandwich.

Speaking of stitching after perusing a few blogs last week I came across a stitching challenge on Jennifer's blog.  It is the Crazy January Challenge 2011 and it involves starting 15 new projects in the first 15 days of January--crazy is right.  So, of course, had to jump right in.  It's not like I don't have enough to do with a huband, three kids, and two dogs.  You can find more info about the challenge on Minna's blog so far over 130 have joined.  I figure this is a great way for me to get some of those small projects I have in my stash finished.  So here goes, wish me luck.

Happy Holidays!!

See ya!!

Congrats on finishing your ornies, and good luck with the challenge. It's all I can do to finish up my UFO's, let alone start 15 new projects, lol. Do you have more than one husband? ;-)
