More April Ornaments

 Two more Kathy Shenkel ornaments done. My stitches and my thread choices. Actually most thread came from my stash except the background and the light green Petit Very Velvet on the previously seen owl. 

Hope the girls will love them as much as I do.

From the Framers

 Let's begin with me saying how happy I am to have a wonderful framing business that I trust and can unreservedly recommend. Totally Framing has two store fronts here in Fairfax County, Virginia. If the only way I could use them was mail order, I would still be using them.

These are my January finishes. And I dropped off Beach Dance. 

These are the Sunflower Seed's Tequila, Little House Needleworks, and Catherine Agnes by Indigo Rose. I made changes to all of them. And waited nearly 15 years to finish all three. Why? Let's not go there. Happy to have them done so I can admire all the time!

April Ornaments

Got to get my ornaments for the granddaughters finished. First one done, second started.

This year I chose 3 Kathy Shenkel ovals ornaments. I'll brush up the Fuzzy Stuff when it comes back from the finisher. All threads  from my stash except the background. 

As I was working on this, I went to put away some of my more canvas acquisitions and discovered I already owned this owl canvas before I bought it last fall. Oops. That's okay. I still want one for me. 

But that made me take an inventory of my unstitched, unkitted canvases. Yikes. 

I wrote them all down. All organized them by subject - Christmas, Halloween, birds, buildings, travel, etc. And put them back in Art Folio binders. 

Now some of you might be curious as to how many do I own? Let's just say, in my defense, it's less than 300 and the majority of them I didn't pay full price for... 

So I need to stitch 20 or so every year. LOL
