Wow what a beginning of school. I have found time to stitch but not so much time to blog. DS is marching in the band this year, so many more practices, games, competitions. And I have been helping hem and iron band uniform pants, as well as chaperoning away games. But here is what I have been working on.
Blue Moon Santa is finished.
All of the background to my challenge piece is finished.
Here is a close-up of the cute little ears Ebbie taught me how to make. Detached button hole stitch.
Next is a closeup of the center of the armadillo that I got to.
Next up is another Petei I am ready to start. I also finished another Santa, a Kathy Schenkel, but can't show it yet as it is a present for some friends for Christmas.

DS, "Mom, don't be taking my picture!" Got to love 'em.
I am a 50+ woman who enjoys various forms of needlework, including cross-stitch, needlepoint and quilting. I've even been known to sew my own draperies. I have been married for almost 30 years and have one teenaged son and one furry four-legged daughter.
