A Bourse

Today has definitely been a better stitching day than yesterday. This morning I set out to find some fabric to finish Leaf from Bent Creek and Life's Journey from Full Circle Designs. I was successful in finding some fabric for Leaf but I didn't find anything I liked for Life's Journey. I love how it turned out except I might change the drawstring ribbon to a different color.



Last night I started on a freebie from Blue Ribbon Designs called A Christmas Wish of Health and Happiness. This particular freebie was in the packet of freebies I got last year for donating to The Busy Needle Ornament Tree. (This freebie is now available at their website.) I am planning on donating this one when it is finished to the Ornament Tree. I am also planning on stitching A Wish for Hope and Peace from the 2007 JCS Ornament issue for the tree.
Happy Stitching!

That is really cool! I love how you finished it. Your fabric matches nice.

I’ve been working on a few SB ornaments, but need to make some for gifts this year, they are so fun! I can’t believe this month is almost over.
