Christmas Ornament

This is "Nickademus" by Raise the Roof Designs from the 2010 JCS Ornament issue stitch on Siren's Call Opalescent Linen from Enchanted Fabrics that I had on hand. I love how cute this turned out! I made this to be my coming nephew's first Christmas ornament. I am planning to stitch his name and the date on another square to put on the back when I "finish" it into an Ornament. I think I'll wait till it gets closer to his birth just to make sure they don't decide on a different name or something like that. Lol!

Here is my weird but adorable dog who decided to take his nap half on the chair and half on the table. Hee hee! He thinks he's a lap dog.

Open Theme RR

Here's my latest progress on my Frog RR from the Open Theme Round Robin. I just finished the top frog border. Not much left and it should be done. I lost the chart I had picked out for the empty square but hopefully I'll find it soon. Grumble..I hate when that happens. I have the empty square, the bottom frog border, and then the letters in the middle block left to do.

Castles In The Air Start

I had finally decided on the fabric and ordered it for Castle in the Air by Papillon Creations. Since I had been agonizing for several months over the last fabric I had chosen before I finally just replaced it, I decided to go ahead and start it. I wanted to at least get part 1 done. So here it is Part 1 except the beads. I think I'll wait on the beads for now. I don't want them to get messed up in the q-snaps. Oh, and I'm stitching on Miracle Mint Lugana. The hand dyed fabric that I had chosen before was too busy and clashed with several of the colors that I really wanted to use.
