Another page of the Dance of the Graces has been completed! 

I've also been working on the finish of my Christmas ornament.  Was a bit more difficult than I had originally thought it would be as I had NEVER made cording before.  But I did it! AND the ornament will be winging it's way to it's new home tomorrow! pictures until I have conformation that it has been received by it's new owner.

Mom's breadcloth is coming along rather nicely.  It's about 3/4 the way stitched and hope to be on the last side by the end of the day today!   Still need to go pick out the beads for the grapes though.

I've also recently found out that the materials for the Chelsea project should be in the mail to me very soon.  Can't wait to get this so I can get this small project out of the way.

I'm also getting ready to start ANOTHER special project for another family member----so unfortunately, will not be able to post pictures on this one either :(.

My Special project has been completed!!!   YAY!!!   Now all I have to do is get it framed.

In the meantime, I've started work on a Breadcloth that was promised to my mom back in April when I went home for a visit.  She and I picked all the material for it back then.  (Sorry I'm sooooo slow in getting to this MOM!)   It's turning out much prettier than I had expected!   I think I may go get some seed beads to accent it with (time will tell).   But here's some photos of my progress on it so far....(The Swatch of fabric is what the breadcloth will be backed with)
Today, I'll be baking cookies for our HOA Welcoming Committee for approximately 30 families to be delivered this weekend.   I'll be making Molasses Spice (DH"s favorite), so.....I'll have to make extra for him too!   While I'm doing that, I'll also be working on the finish of my Christmas Ornaments.

Then, sometime this week, I would like to break the Dance of the Graces back out and work for a little bit on them as I haven't touched them in over a month!  AND they are calling to me!
