November 19-21, per Random Number Generator!

The Random Number Generator has been choosing some small designs lately, but two nice ones to get into the Christmas spirit!

November 19 - #2 Bear Hug.  This is a very old kit from The Creative Circle that I started in 1988.  Did you ever go to one of their needlework home parties?  I went to a few of them and wanted to try all the cross stitch and needlepoint and crewel and candlewicking designs, too!  My friends and I were in our 20s and were always going to or having Tupperware parties, Princess House crystal parties, candle parties, kitchen gadget parties, House of Lloyd home decor and toy parties, and even a negligee and X-rated toy party!

I finished the little bear being hugged by the big bear.
Bear Hug update #1
November 20 - #33 Boule Pastel.  This is another free chart I found on a French blog, Le Blog de Vava. It is stitched on perforated paper.  Instead of pastel colors, I chose sparkly red and a yellow background.  I will add more green and red Christmas colors, too!
Boule Pastel update #1
November 21 - #49 Boules Baroques.  What a coincidence that the Random Number Generator chose another freebie from Le Blog de Vava!  I am stitching these ornaments on perforated paper with a single color of floss.  I finished one ornament using the color mauve.  I will put felt on the back and hang it with a ribbon.

Good starts on your WIPs. Oh yes, went to a few home parties over the years.

Three more lovely projects. The ornies on perforated paper look really good.

Lovely projects as always. But what made my day were the last two parties mentioned. Thanks for making me smile.
