TUSAL #12 and cross stitch kits for sale!

My ORT jar is just about full from all of my stitching this year!  What will you do with your ORTs?  I bought these clear plastic ornaments to fill.  But I will also put the ORTs out for the birds in the spring so they can have colorful nests!
Remember to check in on Daffycat's blog with a link to your TUSAL update, too!

I finished this Kitty Wreath ornament just in time!  It is a birthday gift for my friend.  Now she'll have time to display it on her Christmas tree!

After going through all my cross stitch stash to choose my new starts for January, I have decided to sell these kits on eBay.  (My eBay auctions)   I had so much fun picking the backgrounds to match the items I'm selling, so please take a look at them all!

Maria van Scharrenburg - Element "Earth" (baby), Night (fairy)
Dimensions Gold Collection - Snowflake Elegance Ornaments, All is Calm, Teddy Bear Birth Record
Dimensions - Santa & Friends Ornaments, Teddy Treasures Ornaments
Janlynn - Daisy Girl, Teddy Bear & Apples, Dolly Mamas "Wild Oats"
Bucilla - Friendly Enemies
Needle Treasures - Hummel "Ring Around the Rosie"

Sugarplum Express - Renoir Rabbit

Crewel kits:
Creative Circle - Wooden Decoy (duck)
Dimensions - Patchwork and Rocker, Blue and Rust Bouquet, Elegant Peacock
Paragon - Springtime Bouquet

Does anyone stitch crewel designs anymore?  I thought these looked so pretty when I bought them, but they are huge and look very difficult with all the different types of stitching.  I think I'll just stick with X's for now!  Hopefully these crewel kits will find a new home next week!

I have some crewel kits in my closet too but they are little ones I picked up. I've always wanted to give crewel work a try but sadly I've never gotten around to trying them. One day. :) Good Luck on your auctions.
