Sunday evening at 7:37 PM, Little Ella Marie made her way into this world. She is 8 weeks early. She weighs 3 lbs 14 ozs and is 16 1/2 inches long. Right now she is in the NICCU and on CPAP and is holding her own. She was given Surfactin to help mature her lungs, but will be in the hospital for at least another 6-8 weeks baring any complications. DDIL started having problems with pre-eclampsia Thursday. She started having contractions Sunday, late afternoon/early evening, and was taken to the hospital. Her blood pressure was very high and the MD decided to do a C-section to prevent any complications for her or the baby. DDIL is doing better now that the baby has been delivered and is resting well. Her and DS are worried about Little Ella though. All are hoping for daily improvement and no problems. Time will tell. Please keep them both in your prayers for healing and well being. Thanks.

My stitching was completed over the weekend, but I just finished the ornament this evening after work. I'm pleased with the way it came out.
Aury, I do hope you consider copying the sincerest form of flattery. I couldn't resist your heart freebie! I did change up the colors to my choice. It is stitched on a remnant of cream 22ct aida. First time I've tried 22ct. I like it!! Will definitely have to find more of that for my stash.
As it stitched up quite small, I was unable to get a decent photo on this gloomy day. This was the best of the lot.
BTW, Aury, can you share your finishing technique? I'm finishing challenged and wouldn't have a clue as to how to finish a heart. Thanks

My March flower basket is ready! It is not a simple basket. I made the basket as a felt pincushion. I also designed it with some stitching, sequins and beads. So the result is a very nice and useful thing!
I though, If you make a hand to it, it may be a Christmas Tree decoration, but I think a pincushion is more useful for me, so let it be.
The instructions for pincushion can be found here and here.

Hello. This is Amy from Houston, TX. Here is my first post. I got this freebie from The Floss Box. I used floss that I had on hand.
I really enjoy looking at everyone's post and getting ideas. This has been fun and it is nice to have a quick finish.
I have started the February post. I am using a freebie from aury. I am using 28 ct Monanco for all my projects. I have picked a varigated DMC for the February project.
See you in February.

Doesn't it look yummy? :)

Howdy everyone! I'm Vicki in CO and it's great to be a part of this group; great fun to see what others choose for their design. I love the tradition of the Bride's Tree; particularly because I am of German heritage.
For January, I chose 'Heart & Home Sampler' by Little House Needleworks. I finished it a few days ago, but finally have a chance to post it. This one is not finished as an ornament; it is framed in a Mill Hill frame.
Until next time...Happy Stitching!
