this will become a front pocket of a project tote bag soon. I didn't want to use the overdyed threads included with this chart for something I will be carrying around, so converted to DMC thread.

The reindeer above is the first Mirabilia/Nora Corett I've ever stitched. I really enjoyed stitching it, and especially love all the 'bling'! :-) I'll be stitching another one of these soon I hope.

Happy New Year!

'Eye on the Sparrow'
Silver Creek Samplers
DMC and 30 ct. Korty's Special Blend

Well, I didn't completely finish this sampler in 2009, but I did finish it this morning-close enough! Not much going on here today, just some carpet cleaning, yeehaw. The sun is shining though! :-) I hope the rest of this snow and ice will melt off the streets in our neighborhood! Two days ago, I came up behind a car on my way home, that was stuck in the middle of the street. One week after our blizzard there is still just tons of snow left on the ground.

As you can see, I have a working camera again. Somehow the other disc was corrupted, which was making me think the camera was acting up. I took pictures of other finishes from the year and will post them here later. Have a great day, and a wonderful year!!
