I've decided that posting pics will help me move along faster with my stitching. I will post updated pictures frequently. I know I will eventually get bored of this piece and have to start on another, until then... more pics.

We had a great Christmas. It is always a very busy day for me. There's not much time to relax, with all the preparations for dinners and last minute cleaning and wrapping, but it is always a fun filled day with the families. Today I finally have time to relax, I won't be doing much today but stitching and a little light housework. I am going to start back up on my Double Dutch Sampler from The Gift of Stitching Magazine. I am going to try to finish this one in 2010. Wish me luck. I have a few other projects on my wishlist, not to mention all the other WIP's. Well, I'm going to put my baby girl down for her nap, grab a cup of tea and start stitching.

This is the first time that I have finished an ornament!!! I think they turned out pretty good. I'll need a little more practice, these took me a long time. These will be the only ornament for this year, but I am excited to start on some for next year. They will be going to my Husbands Grandmother. I think she will like them.

This is my first attempt at Blogging. Hopefully I can be dedicated to it. These post will be mainly about cross stitching and crocheting. A little bit of cooking might be added in as well.
This first post is about a couple of ornaments I am stitching as gifts. They are from Helga Mandl Christmas Chartpack 2009. The first one I have finished stitching, and the second is about half way done. I will finish them both together. This will be my first time finishing an ornament, so wish me luck. I will post the final products when they are done.
