I am excited about my progress with my letter C from Nora. I have one arm left on the little fairy (lots of little petite stitches so I have to be in the mood with good lighting to work on her) but otherwise the design stitches up fairly quickly. This is the first fairy I've ever done and I'm already thinking of more I'd like to do.

Most of the time I embroider my designs and then wait a while to see what I want to finish them in. With Easter coming up I decided to make a quilted table runner, they are easier to store than pillows. I have a closet full of pillows and more pillows here and there, but they are cozy and colorful.
These are a couple things (among several others :) that are in the "sale bin" in my Etsy Store. A little quilted swing purse with zipper closure and my last red needlecase. I love a needlecase for putting my scissors, needles and other small things in. Happy weekend to everyone!

Sweet treats are good for Valentine's day too and this is a bowl full of truffles. Dark chocolate truffles are the best, especially with a cup of black coffee.
And a trio of swirly hearts in Chablis shades of pink from Weeks Dye Works. These were fun to do, but more challenging than I thought they would be. I was watching a movie while stitching and got off on one of the hearts and had to restitch. Going around the edges I miscounted and ended up in a totally wrong place... Hope everyone had a great New Year and best wishes for 2010!
