I really do still cross stitch.  I admit there hasn't been a lot of free time to devote to it lately, but I am hoping to do more.  This is Merry Christmas Sampler from the Stoney Creek Collection 1989 stitched on 14 count Rue Green Aida.

Thanks for looking!

Between decorating the house for Christmas and being sick for almost three weeks, I have not felt like adding to my blog.  I did manage to make a few Christmas fobs and get them listed in my Etsy shop.  One of them sold very soon after listing it along with another one that was not Christmas.  Here are the two that sold.


I've also been trying to paint some all along.  I have an opportunity to participate in a craft show next fall.  I will have to work hard between now and then to have enough stock to sell.  We'll see!  I also have another craft I've been wanting to try for some time now.  I hope to work on that right after Christmas and see how it goes.  I also have another idea for my Etsy shop that involves painting.  I think it could really take off it works out the way I hope.  Stay tuned for both of these new ventures.  And while I'm not doing anything, I have been trying to get in more cross stitch time and I have to get back to painting more rooms in our new house.  Beige throughout just is not me.  Too boring!

Here is the latest ornament I did.  I think it turned out cute!

Thanks for stopping by!
