Here is my progress on my Hardanger Heart ornament. I was able to get half of the pine boughs stitched tonight. It had somehow slipped my mind that stitching with gold braid = no fun. Trying to get the stitches to lay right is like herding cats. However, I think it is turning out pretty well. After this, I just have to finish the other half of the pine boughs, attach the beading and it shall be done.
Now the challenge becomes, do I work on more ornaments, which I am enjoying? Or should I go back and work on my fruit bell pull? I would really like to stitch some of the MLI Christmas angels. I will have to wait and see what inspires me.
I somehow forgot to mention that my daughter got me one of those heated throws for Christmas. It is the height of decadence and is perfect for taking a nap under or sitting on while I stitch. I am worried that a certain little dog will find out about the magic blanket. If that happens, it will no longer be mine...
