Fun Mail and some stitching

Today after I got home from a trip to my LNS I found the latest project from the Seasons of Chessie club.

 Winter Wonder.

Here is the whole kit including the hornbook.  Another fun project.

I stitched up these ornies from Foxwood Crossings for my Grandchildren.  
Since I now have five grandchildren I stitched up another one of each design.  I will be posting these again once they are mounted on the sleds.

I stitched this ornie from the JSC 2013 Ornament magazine and finished it yesterday.
Val's Stuff--Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas ornament.
Stitched on 32 count coffee dyed fabric with DMC threads.
Started 11-16-13
Finished 11-17-13

Well that's it for now.
Thanks for stopping by.

Christmas Garden

Just finished Christmas Garden last night.  I haven't decided yet about putting initials in the piece as I am not sure if I want to put my initials in with my maternal family initials or my initials with my four daughters initials.  But the piece is stitched.  Another BIG WIP done.

Blackbird Designs--Christmas Garden.
Stitched on 32 count cream with DMC threads.
Finished 11-15-2013.

Now I think I will stitch a couple of small things and decide which BIG WIP I will finish next.
Have a great weekend.

Introducing Sharon....

So I went to Joann's today armed with four 60% off coupons.  I was wondering around just looking for something I might "NEED" and I saw to my amazement a couple of 8" Gingher--Sharon scissors.
I began to panic as I wanted a 4" scissors so, I lifted up the 8" box and there was ONE 4" scissors.
I grabbed it and proceed to the checkout with my treasure.
I didn't know that there was even a new Gingher scissors coming out--Bonus I guess.
So here it is:  Sharon.

 This was my purchase at Joann's today and the total for these items was $23 and some change!!! Less than the regular cost of the scissors which was $39.99.
Happy Times:)

 I stitched up this ornie from this years JCS Ornament magazine.
It is from Plum Street Samplers called Christmas Stocking. 
I am going to try to finish it into stocking form today hopefully.

*Edited*  Just finished my Christmas Stocking.
Plum Street Samplers from 2013 JCS Ornament Magazine.
I stitched this piece on 32 count instead of 36 count as called for.
Not sure of the color but it is a grey color.  I also changed the house color
from Cherry Bark to Mulberry.
Started and Finished 11-09-2013.
This is my progress on Christmas Garden.  I am staying on task for the most part except for the small ornie I stitched up in the previous picture.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
