Well it is Christmas Eve day and I am wondering where this past year went!! How did my life get so busy - well 2012 will be hopefully a slower paced year and filled with lots more stitching. I learned a new word --- NO!!

To add to my busyness - my computer has been acting strangely - notice the underlining!!?? Do not know where that came from and I cannot seem to get rid of it.

The little bit of stitching I did is below - the small red and gold Whitman's Tin with smalls from a Jane Timmer's design. I also made a waxer using two small charms tied together with a ribbon with the wax pressed inbetween.

Since I do not like to see the writing on the bottom - I cover the area with felt or ultra suede and then add button feet.

Above is an ornament I received from an exchange group and below is the ornament I sent.

Since this is the 3rd attempt to post this - I will close and say Merry Christmas to you all.

Hi Roberta,

Love your little tin and the accessories and such a clever idea to put buttons on the bottom. When you slow down let me know your secret, I have learnt to say NO to other people but still find plenty to do, maybe we set ourselves high targets to reach and of course there is so many interesting things to learn and see.
Have a wonderful time Roberta and thank you for your friendship thoughout the year. Only two more hours then I can open some presents.
Love Hazel

So glad that you had received the Exchange ornament before Xmas. I was worried that it might not reach in time.

Merry Christmas to you and your family!
