End of the Year and Exchanges

I have finished the last part of my Blueladie SAL. I just love each month. It was a fast stitch each month and the colors are so pretty :)
 In my stitcherhood yahoo group I participated in an Ornament exchange. I LOVE this ornament that Tonya sent me. It is oh so cute on my tree. The socks are cozy comfy too. I love socks :)
 Here is the ornament I sent her. It was a fun stitch. I mess up on this ornament but think I covered it pretty good. I was tired and couldn't figure out how I was going to make it. I only know a few ways to make an ornament since I don't stitch. I went around it, stuffed it and finished it off then I realized it had no hanger. I tried everything then I remembered I had crop-a-dile. It worked wonderfully and I love the way the hanger looks :)
 I am dying for Christmas so Dustin can get his new wedding band. It was supposed to be for our 15th wedding anniversary but the lady babysit for never pays like she should so it is now a Christmas gift. My husband is a simpleton so I'm not so sure he will like this. He is a mechanic and the look reminds me of a hose clamp. Cheesy I know. The picture looks like there is white in it but it is really all black with a basket weave look in the middle. I have told him ahead of time that one present may not suit him well and if he doesn't like it he can exchange it for something else. He thinks it is a new jacket, lol.


  1. I like the ring. Congratulations finishing the SAL.It looks great. The ornaments are adorable. Have a Merry Christmas Tara!

  2. Oh Tara! My SAL turned out so beautiful!!!! The ornaments are BOTH so cute!!! Well-done to both Tonya and you! I always love socks so I know what you mean. TFS! Let us know how DH likes the ring. :) Cathryn.

  3. Love the ring. Art just always wanted a plain gold band. I have that on now under my set of rings he gave me for our 25th Christmas. It was suppose to be an anniversary gift as well but he didn't have all the money to get it out of layaway until Christmas. So I got it complete with 25th wedding anniversary card and stuffed bear for Christmas that year. It was pretty cool our anniversary is or was in September.
