"Kokopelli Christmas"

I am making some progress on this "Kokopelli Christmas". I hope to have it finished in a week or two.

grandson's bath towel

I just finished stitching my grandson's name alphabet onto a bath towel. I will be using the bath towel as a wrapper around his birthday present. Maybe a Fisher Price construction toy. He is into Builder Bob which is a character on tv. The motifs are construction equipments.... stitched onto aida, then I put a bias tape around the edges and stitched onto the towel.

"Gardening Snail"

Another fun stitch designed by Margaret Sherry! I stitched the chicken for my mother. She likes it so much that she asked for another whimsical tea towel. This will be stitched onto a tea towel for her. Even though she isn't a gardener, she loves whimsical animals, bugs, characters, etc.

I just finished stitching "Snowie" by Mary Burton from the Twisted Threads Company. I stitched it on 28 ct. medium blue Laguana with DMC and Anchor threads since I didn't have any sampler threads at this time. Black beads were used for the eyes and twig arms. The vest is stitched using smyrna cross.
