Parade Day

It's been a big week for me, finishing up the Winterkist Blog Hop. It was a lot of work, but oh so fun! Here are my final handstitched projects from the blog hop.

A French knotted French press cozy....


A Gnoma Claus mug rug, complete with beard embroidery....


Now it's your turn!!

I just ask a few things of you:
1. link only projects with some handstitching
2. link to a specific post
3. use the linky party button (found in my sidebar) in your post, so others can easily find the party and join in
4. visit other Handmade Parade partiers, because everyone likes comments :-)
.....and go!
