I've been working like crazy on embroidery. Making alot of tags for the holidays as they are a popular item in my Etsy shop....They really make cute gift tags for packages as well as used in holiday decorating.

we go to a White Elephant party every year with some dear friends and I decorate the package with one of these tags. Everyone likes them and they have something to take home to use as a tree decoration afterwards.

I have quite a few listed and will be adding more in the coming days. They all come with tying ribbon so they're ready for whatever you have planned.

All proceeds go to helping us stay above the water and have a nice Christmas. Life is a stuggle sometimes as we all know. Living mainly on Social Security is difficult.

My Etsy shop, Cute Puppies, A Table Topper and more

As I last posted, I've been restocking my Etsy shop. Here are two flour sack type towels with cute vintage puppies I hand embroidered. This is one of my favorite patterns. I made a pillow top for a friend with this same pattern as her daughters puppy looks similar to these little guys. You will find these towels in my Etsy shop which is posted on the left of this blog.

Here a close up for oen of the puppies, he has green eyes and is so cute. This was really fun to stitch.

I also listed this table topper. I emroidered little houses all around the inside of the square cloth. They are in shades of terra-cotta, blue, gold and green. Rather multi-colored. The houses are rather interesting.

This cloth is nicely finished also and measures 30 by 30 inches. This again can be found in my Etsy shop.

                              Lots of tags are listed too. Many for the holidays .

These are all primitie style and I get the patterns from Primitive Stitches. Brenda is a talented designer.They make nice tree ornaments as well as used in accenting wreaths, or hanging on a knob. I use them to garnish gifts also for the annual White Elephant party we attend every December. A nice little extra.

The world is rather crazy right now, isn't it? One emergency after another. Praying for Las Vegas and our nation.
