create snowman tree topperFoiled by the craft stores! caterpillar eyeglass holderTook so long, it turned into a butterfly! finish fisherman ornamentSorry, still no photo... finish Elisabeth’s stockingSee it here. finish Jillian’s stockingSee it here. make lobster stewI did, and I have been crowned lobster stew champion.
- sew overnight case--changed my mind; Sissy will get this in Feb for her b-day
- finish beer stitched piece--changed my mind. Wrapped it with the frame but I didn't actually finish it. My dad is friends with a great framer.
- felted soap--nope--instead I made the dude a little scrapbook listing 12 restaurants serving 12 different ethnic cuisines--including printed directions to each place--so that we can try a new place every month. We tend to go to the same places and eat the same things. (We used to live near a sushi restaurant and when we'd go in all the waitresses would just say, "the usual?" So sad.) He also got a pile of books including Ball's Complete Book of Home Preserving, Pynchon's Against the Day, Schott's Original Miscellany and the 2008 Miscellany (he likes facts), and a guidebook to Thailand where we plan to spend his 40th birthday.
I also worked on Christmas Elf Fairy--just have to finish the whisper thread and bead it.
I also did some back stitching on Tall Flowers this month.
