Swinging in to show a small finish....this one was my current "car project" and I finished the stitching part last Wednesday, finished the beading Friday evening and finished the finishing last night. She's a cutie, that is for sure and I can mark another off my list of my LHN Monthly Ornaments! Now I just have one more to get done before the Peppermint Twist one lands in my mailbox. I'm proud of myself for halfway keeping up! And boy won't my tree look "all dolled up" come December....yes'siree it surely will!

Fabric: 32 ct. remnant
Diane has announced that the ornament series will continue for 2011, so that's 12 more ornaments!!! Boy oh boy....if I would keep up with LHN's monthly ornaments and then stitch some of the Prairie Schooler Santa's that I really want to do....my tree would be gorgeous! I need to make goals, or hire help :) and....don't forget I have two blogs worth of LHN Monthly Ornament stitchers doing a stitch-a-long...so if you'd like to join us, click on the links in my sidebar to take you to the blog and follow the directions there to be join us!
flew by as usual, I had to work so little "fun" time happened. This week we have our county fair going on, so we'll be checking that out and getting some fair grub. Next weekend we'll be travelling to see the grandparents one last time before school starts. The summer is slowly coming to a close for us, sort of sad, but we've had a super summer and all good things must end. The kids are looking forward to new starts and fresh beginnings....Mama is too ;)
Until next time....
I'll be keeping my "hands to work and heart to God"!
Hugs and love,
