got to me. I caved and resubscribed. They fought dirty, LOL. I had forgotten about the ornament issue. I already found three or four or ten ornaments I want to stitch. And I may buy some of the back issues. I really liked a lot of the designs I missed.
At least I'm moving forward on getting some of my other ornaments finished. I found a finisher, and I'm sending her four ornaments to finish for me. Some of them have been kicking around in the finish box for a while, so it's great to find someone who can get them done and finish them better than I can. I am crossing fingers she can have them done before the holiday.
Thank you for your kind comments on my Dragon Dreams finish. I really love her designs so much. And they have a difficulty level that I can deal with. Some specialty threads, but nothing impossible to find. And the finished effect is so precious. I have another one started; hopefully I can make progress on it in 2011, but I don't want to book 2011 up and never get anything accomplished, LOL.
After finishing Dragon at the Manger, I moved on to Snowy Pines, the 4th LHN Ornament for this year. And that's when the frog came a-callin'. I've had to pick out about half what I've put in. I don't know why; it's simple DMC on Jobelan, nothing fancy. Once I get into a rhythm, maybe it will go better. I'm hoping so . . .
