The last thing I told you was that I was going to stitch up an ornament for one of the kids this weekend. Well I began that on 32ct over 2. I just don't like that. It looked to big. The dark blue just wasn't covering very well either. So I tossed that. But I decided the dark blue I had wasn't quite the right match to the high school's color blue. It was too late at night to go to JoAnn. So I decided to start the Angel ornament I am making my mother for Christmas. I had the pattern. I knew I had linen. I only had half of the DMC. Well, the next stitch waiting to be done was one for myself. =)

I used Weeks Cinnabar floss. I love this color. (Thanks again Peggy!) The true colors don't seem to be showing with these pictures. Maybe when she is finished the true golden tones will show more. I need to go to JoAnn again for some finishing fabric. I don't have anything suitable for this pin pillow.
I did get the correct school colors in DMC yesterday. Navy blue and dark canary. So I did barely begin the school logo Christmas ornament. I will stitch it on white 32 ct still, but one over one. I also am adding a neat antique motif I found that is used to surround monograms. Now to stitch in secret! ;)
I did finish the book I was reading by Bill Cosby. It was funny. Just not hilarious. I thought it would be very funny. I found the book at the library by chance.
Have a great day in the Lord everyone!
Stitching and praying,
