Christmas Stitching Underway.....

Hi, thanks so much for all the encouraging comments about my Paris Ornament. I've finished the 2nd one and it's waiting to be finished into a pin-keep too. I'm planning to do something a little different on this one so I'll post pictures when it's completed. I'm stitching like crazy on my stitchy gifts for family & friends. I'm hoping to get all of them done soon so I'm not stitching at the last minute, which is the usual pattern for me. I end up stitching up until I know there's no way it will get done in time! Not this year - I'm ahead of the game, I think :) You'll have to wait for pictures because I don't want to take the chance of anyone seeing them before they receive theirs.

I'm participating in round 4 of the Fair & Square exchange! I can't wait to start this piece. I'm hoping to pick out the pattern this weekend and see what materials I need. I'll definitely need to get some 32 ct fabric; I find myself stitching on 28 ct more than anything lately. It sounds like my partner in the exchange has similar tastes as mine so I don't think it will be too hard to find something :)

On a non stitching note, my hubbie and I purchased our first GPS system. We went with the Garmmin. I must say it's very cool! I got to use it yesterday. Even though I knew where I was going it was so cool to see this thing work! A note of caution - it can be very distracting at first so be careful. You'll notice you have a tendancey to watch this thing and take your eyes off the road.....that can be a very bad thing. I was pretty much used to it by the time I headed home yesterday evening though.

Until next time - Happy Stitching :)

Can't wait to see your stitching that is under wraps for now :)

And whatever you choose for F & S will be SPECTACULAR...I forgot who your partner was so now I'm gonna go look ;)

Can't wait to see your newest pinkeep! Good luck on getting everything done before Christmas. I hope I am able to as well.

I have a TomTom GPS and absolutely love it and don't go anywhere without it. I just wish it had something on it to warn you of stop signs and red lights. It tends to make you almost run them! Eek!
