Pretty colours


I've been hooked on this stocking and decided to put in 3 days of stitching and I definitely see some results!
This is coming along so nicely.









Today the mailman brought me the threads that Kathy picked up for me.
Thanks you my BFF...this enables me to do more in the middle of the Desert Mandala




So tonight that is my goal to add some pretty bling to my DM...oooo Ican't wait.



I love working on this, so ...adding some bling will make it even prettier.
As per usual I'm keeping an eye on the blogs every now and again it lets me comment so It's kind of fun to see who is next on the comment list LOL!

Stitch with happy fingers.
See you soon.

Hi Beatrice,

You'd better get cracking on that
stocking. It's just 11 months
until Christmas now. Lol!!

This is quite a pretty design
and I think those snow globes
are wonderful and a fantastic
idea to use to recreate scenes
of Christmas.

Your Desert Mandala is going
to look fabulous with the
addition of those gorgeous
treasure braids. Sparkly
indeed. Kathy's a sweetheart
for picking them up for you.

The China Blue project is
amazing!! What glorious
colors, and the designs are
stunning. I love it so much.

It's been great stitching
weather the past few days. In
other words lousy weather makes
a great excuse to hibernate and
stitch.

Cheers!

Santa is really cute and I'm really enjoy watching how the Desert Mandala is developing. Some day soon, I'll start it.

Hi Beatrice,
I read your blog faithfully, however, sometimes it takes forever for the comment form to come up especially when I am on dial up. Your photos and stitching look awesome.
You should drop in on the Friday group sometime and see what everyone is working on. Its amazing.
