TUSAL and before the next IHSW

Before the next IHSW coming up this weekend … I haven’t been doing a lot of stitching lately, but I do have a couple of things to share with you.  I participated in a Christmas ornament exchange in a Yahoo group hosted by Joy at “The Busy Stitcher” and I received this beautiful package full of buttons, charms and other goodies and of course an adorable stitched Santa ornament. 

Since our host has declared our exchange closed even though I didn't find out if my gift pack was even received I am going to share a picture of the ornament I made.  I forgot to take a picture of all the other goodies I included.  This is why I was practicing making ornaments so I could get this one perfect as possible.  I think I did it.  I just hope my partner enjoys the box. 

It is also TUSAL time again and Mr. Cleo Jenkins had to help me corral those wild threads most of the green from the frogging session I had on the Banu design a couple of weeks ago.

I have started on another Christmas ornament but it will be just for me I think.  Can you guess what it is?

Mr. Cleo Jenkins wants to know too.
Well until next time I’ll be making wonderful little xxs.  Thank you for all of your comments and welcome to my new followers.
