Filler Stitching and Socks

I had been waiting for my Jazzercise teacher to have her baby so that I could start stitching her an announcement design I had picked out. I'm superstitious so I would never start the stitching before the baby was born. In the interim, I picked out a couple of designs from the same book with the ice skaters (previous post) that were in a section with all pink X-mas designs. These two seem perfect for girlie birthday cards and I'll just hold onto them til the right birthday comes along. The designs are by Jane Henderson.




The baby arrived on Christmas Eve so I'm merrily stitching the announcement now.

On another note, I received the coolest pair of socks as a gift. They come from Vermont and are made under the trademark name, "Solmate Socks" that are "mismatched with care in Vermont". Their motto is "Life's too short for matching socks."
Check out their website.

Your socks are so cool!!! Here in Venezuela we have a new trend of shoes in matching colors (but not the same). Apparently I'll get a pair is sis Kathe doesn't find my magnifier with light.

The finishes for the cards are lovely!
