Some LITTLE Happy Dances!


Well, this should be interesting, because of the answers I got yesterday about having your comments sent to your email address, I went searching for how to do that. Somewhere in that hour and a half it took me to find that answer, I changed editors? So this is my first time trying to post, and things are really different! I couldn't take it - I switched back to the old editor until I have time to figure the new one out. Like that will ever happen!

Oh well, back to my happy dances. I did have some time yesterday afternoon to do a little finishing work, and so I have somethings to show you. I have to admit one of the things that had been holding me back from finishing these pieces was that I had purchased some fabric to use, and I couldn't find it. Does that tell you what my craft room looks like today? But, miracles happened, and I found the fabric so I got these three done. This first one looks in terrible shape, but what happened was when I was pressing the other two, I was using a damp cloth, and I didn't realize until I took this picture that I must have put the cloth on this ornament, and didn't iron it dry - oops! I is dry now. Sorry this picture is so big, don't know why.




Wow this has been one tough post, I am still not quite sure what is going on - whine, whine. Anyhow, this next picture is the little piece I stitched over the weekend, and the fabric that it is laying on is the backing of the ornament.







This last ornament is a piece I stitched and signed back in 2005, and just found a couple of weeks ago, so I got it made up with the fabric it is laying on as its backing.








Lastly, here is a picture of my year long tree with the ornaments on it. I did order the JBW French Country Heart chart from Amy at Down Sunshine Lane during her Super Bowl sale, and my DH tells me it came in the mail today - whoo hoo. I am going to try to stitch and finish it over the weekend so that it can go on the tree this year as well. Wish me luck.



Thanks for the help about the emailing situation. I think that will be a great way to work. I will hope to try it this time. And, I do appreciate all your visits and comments!



Until next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!
