August Ornament – Just In Time

Sunday I went to visit some of the Wisconsin stitchers and we had a fun GTG.  It so much fun to hang out with smart, beautiful, and strong women!  Between my job and home life, I don’t get a whole lot of “Girl Time.”

I brought my August ornament to the GTG and managed to finish it off:

Lizzie Kate “Christmas Spirit with Charm Holly/Stocking”

The colors are off a bit in the pic, but I’m feeling too lazy tonight to fiddle with it any further.  🙂 I’m not totally crazy about this – but I needed something quick.  It seems like it needs something – some sparkle or something.  If anyone would like the pattern, which also includes the “stocking” design (and the charm for that one), e-mail me with your address and I’d be glad to put it in the mail to you.  First come/first served.

I’m looking forward to this month’s release of the JCS Ornaments issue.  I’m not feeling inspired by any of the ornaments I’d planned to stitch this year, so maybe something in there will grab my attention for the September ornament??

After finishing the ornament, I picked up a partially finished Sweetheart Tree biscornu that’s been an on-again-off-again project and put a few more stitches in it:

I also recently noticed that Sweetheart Tree has a pumpkin biscornu kit out!  I’ll have to pick that up sometimes as I love All Things Fall.

I want to finish up my scarf knitting project – then get back to work on Alpine Seasons.

I’m taking Thursday off work to go to Cedar Point!  I LOVE rollercoasters and this is the place to go.  I went earlier in the summer, but didn’t get to do everything I wanted to, so I’m going back.   Millennium Force is my absolute favorite – 96 mph and perfectly smooth.  If you go to the site, you can watch Point of View videos of the rides.  Not nearly as much fun as the wind in your hair, but if you love coasters, its worth a look.

  1. Congrats on your finish!

    Oh boy…rollercoasters! I got tricked into riding one at Indiana Beach one time (Hoosier Hurricane), and am surprised I survived that ride 🙂

  2. great finishes,I grew up going to Ceder Point as a kid I have not been there in AGES. Man I really want to go now…I remeber when the Magnum was first brought to the park I was SO afraid to ride it LOL

    Have fun!!

  3. I wish I could have gone to the GTG with you – we had some fun road trips!

    “Holly” looks lovely! I think it’s perfect for you!

    Have fun at Cedar Point!

  4. Cedar Point! That was my 8th grade class trip. 😀

    As to Holly… you can crochet right? Use eyelash yarn in a glitzy gold or silver for trim. Chain stitch up a good length and then just attach it like you would corded trim. In fact I think it’s easier to sew down because the craziness of the yarn hides your stitches easily.
