Working On My Tree ......

I am still working on my Exchange Stitching, But I am much closer to Completion.
Needing a Stitching Break - I decided
I wanted to add a few more ornaments to my tree.....
I added more gold balls & then decided I wanted to do something more.....
So I used an old Bible that was accidentally damaged some time ago 
(I just didn't have the heart to throw it away)
And did this:
And then I  used some of this....
 to do this...
 And let me tell you 
WHAT A MESS.
But I kept at it because I was determined to make something lovely for my tree.
So I ended up with a bowl full of these:
Now all I need is some gift tags, glitter & Ribbon.....
I'll show you the end result soon 
Have a wonderful day !

You know what they say - You reap what you "sew" 
Just wait And see........

The Raggy Process Has Started

I tea dyed the fabric I stitched my little snowmen on for on old raggedy feel.
 Buttons will go where I added the ribbons.
The final step will be to sew the "Raggy" edge and stuff the little pillows.
 Then they will be ready to hang on the tree.


By the way, The stitchers have been notified for the Christmas Exchange -
Don't worry if you didn't hear from me.
Remember I am wanting to try to send out some RAK's 
I hope I can stitch fast enough.........
