TUSAL Dec 2012 and other stuff...

It is TUSAL time once again and I have really enjoyed sharing my orts and finding different little jars and containers to display them in.  Here is my display for December 2012.


I found this little glass milk carton at a shop at the National Harbor and I thought it was just too cute and of course Mr. Cleo Jenkins took it upon himself to present this month’s TUSAL.
It has been a really long time since I shared a picture of one of my statues and being that Christmas is on its way, I thought this would be a little reminder as to what the reason for the season truly is.
This one I call “O Holy Night” it’s by Ebony Treasures, I can’t remember exactly where I got it but I think it is beautiful. 
I've only got a couple of things stitchy to show, since I finished my Christmas ornaments I've been working on the SAL design by Banu Demirel I got from Facebook a while ago.   It is supposed to be blackwork but of course I love color so it is “multicolorwork”. You have to forgive the bad pictures, I’m old (enough said). 

The other design I worked on is “Ida Mae Rich”.


It is being stitched on 36ct Vintage Butter crème linen and to me you have to make a lot of little xxs to see any progress, but thanks to my new discovery of audio books I was able to loose myself in a good mystery and just stitch. I have gone through 5 audio books in the last two weeks.  
Thank you to all of my followers old and new for the comments you leave, I love them.  Before I go I would like to say that my prayers go out to all of the people affected by the shooting in the Portland, OR mall and especially to the families who lost loved ones. 
I’m now off to work on a special design for the biscornu exchange I’m participating in with some very special friends on the About.com cross stitch forum, so until next time I’ll be making some wonderful little xxs.

You finished some great ornaments, I admired them in your last post and they are all very beautiful.
Little by Little is one of my favourite designers and I love all of her designs. This one is new to me and I'm looking forward to seeing it grow here on your blog.
Have a great holiday!

That's where I inherited my brains from. [url=http://www.mulberryhandbagssale.co.uk]http://www.mulberryhandbagssale.co.uk[/url Cook pasta till it is just slighly under-done (see Pasta LordOmar for an accurate description of this condition, but you want to leave it just approaching al dente as when you toss it with the sauce in the final step the pasta will absorb the sauce in the final cooking process, creating a much more flavorful dish) Set it aside and toss with a small amount of olive opil to keep it from sticking together in the strainer.
