And there it is! This is for my Uncle Ronnie for Christmas this year. Every year, I try to make a little something for him. He is one who appreciates every stitch and the efforts put into handmade items. :-)
The design is called "Authors" and is from a Cross My Heart booklet titled "Page By Page". I stitched it with plain ol' DMC on a prefinished Charles Craft 18 count white aida bookmark. To finish it off, I applied blue sticky-back felt to the back side of the bookmark.
Why do I wait until it's almost too late before I start my Christmas stitching??? *slapping self in forehead* I saw once where a woman was going to try stitching her gifts during the first six months of the year, then spend the rest of the year stitching for herself. I need to ask her how that turned out. Maybe I should try it in 2009? That and I neeeeeeeeeed to go on the wagon and quit buying more stitching stuff! *slapping self in forehead again*
Thanks for your comments on my posts. I really enjoy reading what others have to say. Meanwhile, TGIF and have a great weekend!
