This is the first year that I have had enough fsl ornaments to decorate my entire tree with lace ornaments. I have made these over the last couple of years and the files are from Stitch Delight, Embroidery Library, and Ace Points, and maybe a few random o
I made some new decorations for my tree. These are made in two parts and slide together so they will be easy to store. They will easily fit inside a card if you want to mail them. Design is from Ace Points and comes in a set of six.
Today I stitched out this cute little Halloween kitty on a towel to give to my friend who is going to feed my cat while I go to visit my granddaughter. She has a cat she calls Dark Boy so this will be perfect for her.
