A Couple of Better Pictures

Just thought I'd post a couple of better pictures of my bourse as the one with the digital camera wasn't very good. Here's the inside.
And here's the outside:)
I finished up part 11 of Chatelaine Christmas Mystery IV yesterday but haven't taken a picture of it yet so that'll be a blog entry for next week when I have time. DH and I are Christmas shopping next week and I think I'm turning into Scrooge as I'm really not looking forward to it. If it was a just case of going and doing our own I think I'd be fine but I'm getting towards the end of my tether with it all and we haven't even started yet!

I received my fabric from Drema at Needlecraft Corner today for the Quaker RR I'm taking part in starting January. I decided upon the fabric used in the model and it's gorgeous! I've never seen a piece of Lakeside Linens before and I love it! It's 36 count Maple Sugar.

I've finished the ornament I was stitching for some family friends for Christmas so will get that made up when I'm done on here. I'm going to try a beaded finish so wish me luck! I've never done it before so you could hear me shouting and screaming all over the world!

Right that's it for today. Just a short post I'm afraid. My blog has been very quiet since my last post. Are you all busy stitching and celebrating Thanksgiving? I hope all of you who celebrate had a wonderful time:) Just a normal day for us here I'm afraid:( {{{{hugs}}}}

Your bourse is lovely. Great pressies. I'm a bit like you too, although I don't have to get many pressies. I do find myself charging like a bull to get through the crowds!
