More than a month has passed since my last post. I have done quite a bit of stitching and sewing. Here are some of the results.
First up are the ornies that I stitched for my grandchildren. Now with that being said I have six grandchildren but I forgot to take a picture of all the ornies before I gave two of the kids their ornies.
So here are the four I still have. These are from The Prairie Schooler book--Mittens. These were pretty fun to stitch. Plus I had to make the mittens from wool felt. I have made ornies each year for each grandchild. Should really think about traditions you start!!! But I think it will be great that each grandchild will have handmade ornies from Nammy!!! I am just so glad that I did get them all finished:) and with time to spare.
Next are these LHN boxes that I stitched for each of our six children's family. The pattern is My House.
Again a lot of stitching and finishing but they turned out just as I had envisioned.
Plus they also were all done on time:)
I have been collecting these LHN Sampler Tree Series ornies and decided I needed to stitch at least one for me this year so I stitched Merry Christmas which is ornie #10.
Stitched on 32 count dyed linen by me with DMC.
Started 11-10-15, Finished 11-14-15
Plum Street Samplers--Merry One. Sorry about the picture, lighting just wasn't good and neither
are my photography skills.
Stitched on 36 count Flax with DMC.

Finished this Plum Street Samplers--Serial Bowl Series Lesson Two. I started this series and I am trying to stay current!! I apologize again for the poor picture quality. I have Lesson Three stitched but not finished. Lesson Four is still waiting to be stitched.
Lesson Two was stitched back in August on 36 count Flax with DMC.

I wanted to do some Thanksgiving/Fall projects.
Here is a non stitched project that I did for one of our Grandsons, Charlie who is three and loves the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I think they turned out pretty cute.
Another non stitching project for one of our daughters. I really also enjoy sewing and these bags are always a fun little project.
Now this is another project that I wanted/needed done which involved my hubby.
I wanted this light to be put on a stand so that I could have a light that was light weight and easy to take with me when I travel.
So here is what it looks like now. My hubby modified the light and put it on a music stand.
I just LOVE it.
This is a close up of the bracket he made to attach the light to the stand. Which is also removable.
The best part is that I can break it down and it all fits into this bag, which I found at a thrift shop.
There it is already to go. It is also light weight so when I fly it is easy to take with me.
Thanks for visiting. I have a few more projects to post about but who knows when that will happen. Hopefully soon. I know I always mention that I want to get better with posting as I finish projects but I just don't seem to do that:).
I hope everyone is having a great week.
