Cornflower, Leaves and Butterfly Wings

Happy Christmas Eve!  I stitched this pillow many moons ago.

I am ready to start Harmony's Lesson 12.  It consists of more detached pieces: cornflower petals, leaves and butterfly wings.  If you look at the front of Harmony, you might think it is already done.

 And frankly, you could leave out these extra pieces.

 But I am going to follow the directions and make them.  When they are done, I can put the scissors case together.  Wow.  I've been working on this for a long time.

I tracked down most of the flosses I need for the baby sampler. I only need a two more.  I have a bit of cabin fever and may venture out to LNS for a change of scenery and to get the floss I need.

The sun is out today. That is wonderful after some rainy cloudy overcast days.
Here are a couple of my favorite ornaments:

Merry Christmas to you.  I'll be back after Christmas to show you what Santa brought.


  1. Have a wonderful Christmas Amy, and a happy and healthy 2016, with plenty of time for stitching!

  2. Such sweet stitching my dear...
    Merry Christmas with lots of kisses xx

  3. What a cute Santa pillow, and the ornaments are cute also.
    Merry Christmas!
