I stitched this on Hardanger for my mother. If
anyone can come up with a plausible reason why Santa is wearing pink
marigolds, I'd love to know, but I followed the chart exactly.
Bunny in Hat Christmas Card
I stitched this for Karen, who has a bunny of her
Partridge in a Pear Tree Christmas Card
I stitched this for my Aunt and Uncle. There is
an "in" joke behind this card. I goes back to the summer
when my Uncle Frank thought he'd play a little joke by hanging an
Apple and a Pear on his underproducing apple tree. Needless to say,
I didn't fall for his prank, but some people did. As his apple tree
wasn't producing fruit, I bought him a pear tree for his birthday
in October and hence this card too.
Ginger Kitten Christmas Card
I stitched this in December for my friend Jared
McLaughlin, (a.k.a. Chester Cat) who is definitely a cat person.
Wile E. Coyote Bookmark
This was a Designer Stitches Kit and my first ever
bookmark. It only took a week or so to do, too.

I stitched this in October for my friend Ted Scribner
in Australia. The Koala seemed somewhat appropriate.
Santa Face Christmas Card
I stitched this in September for my friend Carol
Phillips in the US. I also used this design on one of my Christmas

was supposed to be a Christmas gift for my friend Cheryl. Let's
just say she got it real late as I didn't finish it until the 19th
I got really bogged down sewing it in December as it was on 18
My Aunt has a Seal Point Persian named Beau. This
design seemed appropriate as a birthday card.
This Bagpuss Kit was a free gift with Cross Stitcher
Magazine. Boy was this a toughy to sew too, 18 count material and
fractionals too. Still it gave me a taste for 18 count and gave me
enough incentive to get back to working on Cheryl's Angel (above).
Completed in July.
This was a birthday card for my friend Spud who
is into cats and football, both in a big way.
