On a Roll . . .

I finished two more things last night. FOR REAL.

I finished the stitching of this little matroshka some time ago but I wasn't sure what to do with her. I put the aida on two layers of batting and some black cotton with the ribbon sandwiched in between and sewed a square. Then I pinked the edges and hung her on my tree. :) I'm keeping her.

I did make a similar ornament for my sister:

Cross stitch is hard to photograph. This is much cuter in person. I actually like this one better than the one I am keeping. :) Definitely nice to feel productive!

We are leaving on Friday for Baltimore and I won't be blogging until the next year most likely. I will be back once more before we go to show you the wonderful package I received from my holiday swap sister, Breanna!

And I'll leave you with my new holiday mantra:

Thanks for the fun card, Nina!!

Your ornaments are adorable-nice job!

I love your mantra, if it wasn't for the fact I have to go to a breakfast tomorrow at 7:30 am--I'd be crackin into my box of wine someone gave me for my b-day..LOL

Enjoy your trip and have a wonderful holiday!
