Its so hot here, almost 100, if not already as I am writing this. Does anyone like to stitch Santa? I know you ladies are gonna think I am crazy. But... I found this 10 year old? UFO in my stash. It is Santa's Wish List. The finished size is 15-5/8 X 22-1/4. It is stitched on 27ct evenweave fabby. It was a kit, so all the thread is there. I no longer have an itch to stitch this anymore. Would anyone like to trade for a UFO, that you no longer want? If you are interested , Please e-mail and let me know. I know there's no way I want to finish it and there's so much work in it, that I dont want it packed away again. It is almost half done.

I could try to sell it on e-bay. I just mailed out a bunch of stuff, so I dont feel like listing anything right now.
I had quite a bit in paypal, but treated myself to some new stash for my BD, seeing all I got was a camera. Which is taking me forever to get the right size for the blog. I think I have it figured out now. It took my stitching time away. Although I made a mistake of having a glass of wine and then stitching, that's a no-no for me. Live and learn. I had to frog alot on my Fairy Lights. I was up all-nite trying to figure it out and stitching and restitching after my little nap to sleep it off, lol. So, It 's not sitting very well with me today anyway.
Here is a pic of the gift I sent to Vonna with other goodies. It took me three days to stitch and finish the tuck.

My parents party was an success. And I am glad it's over.

My parents have been married 60 years. Yeah for Mom & Dad.
I was born on their 16th Anniversary. If there is a difference in my new camera and old, the hen was taken with the old camera. I hope there is. Thank you everyone who reads my blog and leaves comments and e-mails. Happy Stitching!!

Sixty years! Wow! That is certainly a reason to celebrate BIG! Best wishes to your parents and a happy future 60th anniversary to you!
Also, good luck with your UFO Santa, looks pretty but I don't know if I could ever work on something started by others. :) Stitching is far too personal for me, but I'm sure you will find someone who wants it!

Happy Anniversary to your parents.

I hope someone will swap for your Santa's List (I don't stitch Christmas designs, just a thing with me, I DO celebrate Christmas), you've stitched so much on it ;)

Your Chicken for Vonna turned out adorable, and I'm glad that your parents anniversary party went so well. I hope you can find a home for your Santa, there is so much finished already it deserves to be finished completly. Although it is gorgeous, it is a much more detailed and dense stitch than I normally do, so don't think I'd probably get it done either.

60 years together is something to be proud of. It was nice that you had a party for them. It deserves a lot of recognition for the 60 years.

I love the Santa. Don't think I am interested. Actually, I have a Stoney Creek Santa that have been in the works for years. Need to get him done. Hope you can find a home for him.

That is so awesome your parents have been married for 60 years. My parents are coming up on the 42nd. With so much divorce now adays it is so cool to hear of people staying together for a long time.
