"I'll Make My Own Happy Ending"

I managed to squeeze in a finish before 2008 ended! Here is "I'll Make My Own Happy Ending" by Dragon Dreams. I used some floss that I already had laying around the house instead of ordering the suggested ones on the chart. For the frog, I used DMC variations #4045 and I think I may have had to change some of the shadowing colors as well. For the wording, I used DMC #52.

Halloween Fantasy Round Robin

Here is my Magician block that I stitched on Melinda's piece for the Open Theme Round Robin. She chose a Halloween Fantasy theme.

Here is my block with Shannon's block. This is going to be pretty cute when it's finished. Now to get cracking on my other round robin.

Merry Christmas!

Have a great Christmas everyone! I chose the alligator because the weather has warmed up here and it just seemed to fit.

The Christmas Lizard

This little possum got trapped in our composting bin over night. We let him go the next morning. Our dogs wanted to chase him but they decided that he was too scary, especially when he would hiss.

So, I walk in and notice that Buddy, the Iguana, had escaped from his cage again. I looked and looked and still could not find him. I finally spotted my little man sitting in our Christmas tree! I guess he was feeling festive too! We all got a good laugh out of that one!

Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

It's snowing! I know, big deal right? For the Texas coast, yeah, it's a big deal! Wow!

Dragon Stitching Lottery

Here is the dragon piece I did for the dragon lottery. I made it into a doorknob hanger/ornament/fob, whatever the winner (who was Carol) wants to do with it. The design is from Dragon Dreams' Dragon Virtues and it was the joy dragon.
