I started the last of the boys' Christmas Ornaments. The letter B is moving smoothly, and I'm glad I have finally learned to work with opalescent fabric. I was having a very difficult time with the floss knotting up, but I've learned to untwist a lot more often, and I don't get as many knots as I was getting on the last two ornaments.  Again, I'm really glad that I started with small projects with this fabric rather than one of the larger Miras.

Over the last few weeks, I received some gorgeous fabrics from Stephanie Bishop. I joined her Fabric of the Month Club, and the September fabric was Iris (on the left). Words cannot describe how beautiful it is in person!! I also received three (3) pieces of Opal Lugana in Forest Bloom (right) to have on hand for when I finally get around to creating the Three for Tea for each one of my daughters.  
At this point, I have just as many fabrics as I do charts. Goodness knows when I'll get through it all, but I have great ambition and intentions!


  1. Those fabrics are really pretty. Good to have all your christmas stitching done so early. I always plan on making a few ornies for the tree and just don't do it. 2013 will be my year of making one every month.

  2. yup..these fabric is really so lovely..
    beautiful stitching..sending you hugs xx

  3. Great progress. That fabby is amazing looking.

  4. Love the fabric. Must check out a fabric club, I love to get surprises in the mail, and those fabrics are so pretty.

  5. Fabric is gorgeous! I think that good intentions are a great ambition and intentions are a good thing to have. Your B is looking good.
