More Pouches & Some Stitching

Here's a few pics of what I've been working on:

Fa La La Ornament of the Month.  A few beads and my initials and the date and this will be ready to be finish finished!  Not sure how I'm going to make these into ornaments yet.  Time will tell.

Progress on LHN The Travelling Stitcher.  I'm doing this with The Travelling Stitcher SAL.  As you can see I don't have a lot done.  I'm using 8x11 Q-Snaps and I find it's slowing me down moving my hand from the front to the back of the fabric.  Oh well, I'm still enjoying it though!

A Partridge in a Pear Tree for my Festive Ornament SAL

And yet more pencil pouches that my darling daughter so generously gave to her friends for a trip to Mexico.  Lovely of her to donate my time!  :D

Happy Stitching!

Awwwwwwww you're such a good mom - she'll always remember that you did this for her and it will put a smile on her face when she thinks of it :) That pink floral is REALLY gorgeous!!

Your WIPs look great! I like the pencil pouches, too. Your daughter is very generous. ;)

Your ornament is lovely and I am sure the beads will make it "sing"! The other WIP's are really coming along too. I know what you mean about 8x11 q-snaps. I use an 11x17 q-snap on occassion and while it is helpful it certainly slows down the stitching!

Those pencil pouches are darling! They would be perfect as project bags! The pencil pouches are very similar to project bags that I bought while at an Embroiderers Gathering this past weekend. Love them! Did you use a pattern or did you make your own pattern? They are very nice!
