11 more to go!

Starry Santa
Homespun Elegance
2003 JCS Ornaments Issue

One finished and 11 more to go! My goal is to make at least 12 ornies this year.

The Silver Needle and The Stitchworks had their Super Bowl Sales yesterday. Becky was planning to be at both stores with 2 of her friends. I planned to go also, and decided to be there at the same time they were, so that we could meet! After shopping both sales, we all went to lunch and talked for a long time! It was so good to meet a stitching blog friend in person!

I got a piece of 28 ct. Light Mocha linen and some fibers to begin We Will Adore Him by Homespun Elegance. I have loved this one since first seeing it in 2003.
