Weekly Update

Fall is in the air. We have had heavy rain storms this week, but for only a couple of days. Our weather is in low 50s in the evening and only up to 80 during the day. I made a good amount of progress on some of my WIPs, also finished another ornament. Also, starting an ornament for the Friendly Stitchers ornaments exchange. Also received word that my exchange partner in Brooks Books received the ornament I sent, so will picture it along with the handmade card I sent.
The design is one of the panels from Snowflake Serenade by Country Cottage Needleworks.
I used beads to highlight  the snowflakes. and used red/white floss from Victorian Motto Sampler and the fabric is 14 ct light green aida.
I had found this fabric and have been using it to back ornaments. It is a mixture of Christmas designs.
