This year is just flying by... My stitching has suffered a bit lately, mostly due to work, vacation, and other life craziness. Oh well, thank goodness I stitch primarily for me and don't get too tied down to obligation stitching or the expectations of others!
1) Get back to "Labyrinth." --uh....I honestly don't remember. I think I *might* have worked on this a bit early in the month...
2) Continue with "Valse de Fleurs." Yes, but I got distracted by Santa projects, so I didn't make much progress.

2) Ornamentify the Christmas sprites.

It is the cutest little thing, and would make a lovely Christmas ornament for a baby....someday, maybe....(In case you can't tell, this is Santa's arm - where the charm will be attached, one leg, the bottom of the moon, and the top of his other leg!)

This is the little mermaid pattern I started the other night - a freebie. There was no color key, so I'm using: Crescent Colors "...
Pardon the rather blurry cell phone picture.... I knew I wanted to mount this piece on a wooden plaque, but its dimensions were making i...
