Hand Stitched Gifts

I just love embroidery, so when I saw this free design on this blog last year, I just knew that I'd have to make a few for gifts for this year.  Needless to say, I didn't realize how many I'd have to make.  I think I gave one to everyone special to me so far, including some to customers (like the sweet lady who just ordered the tree skirt), but now I'm realizing that I'm missing some special friends, so I'm desperately stitching away so that I can finish them before I take my machine in for cleaning on Wednesday.  Wish me luck!!!  E-gads, next year I better do a better job of counting!!!  LOL  (Or maybe get rid of some relatives or friends, huh?   My fingers will really be sore after this marathon, I'm sure.)

If you click this picture and get to my Flickr site, her blog site is listed with a direct link. So sorry this one didn't work.

It's beautiful. I want one!

This is like the third year in a row I've wanted on your Christmas list..... aprons, those sweet rag dolls, and now these....
sigh.

Oh, Carol, this is just charming! I love that saucy little bird at the top of the tree. Your friends and family are so lucky! There isn't anything you don't do well!

Well, this did go on my TODO list, and I made it for my Mum for Christmas and she loves it!
