I FINALLY (with much emphasis) finished the Melissa Shirley Scottish Santa!!! Much relief to be had! It seemed like that piece was growing! I don't think it helped that is was in my UFO pile and I had been working on it since July 2010. Yuck! Here is a picture of the finished product.
I have also made substantial progress on my Roll Tide canvas that I bought in Dallas. I am trying to finish soon because A&M went to the SEC and I cannot be needlepointing a canvas for a school that is direct competition!
A close up of the stitches is below. I am not sure of the names of the stitches but they are covering the canvas well and are a lot of fun to do.
I went shopping at Macy's the other day during, and they had a HUGE sale going on. I got a new set of Hotel collection towels- white of course- and a Christmas gift for my sister. She is getting some portmerion mugs- originally $40 but I got them for $25. How awesome! I will get her some tea and a tea pot to go with it for college. Also significant is that the mugs have a picture of Daisies on them. Daisy is my mom and dad's basset hound! How perfect!
I leave you all with a picture of Molly. She has her vet appointment in two weeks- hopefully it will go well!
