MLI's 2005 Christmas Angel is here!

We are expecting one of Mike's friends over for dinner tonight, so I don't think I will be able to stitch at all tonight. I got home late and our company is not even here yet. I am too tired for company, but anyhow... I stitched on Celtic Winter when I could at work today. Why? Well, it is SAL day for this piece, so I put a few stitches in :-) (Can't see them? I did some of her skirt near the gold border on the left... lots of 3756 today!).

If you have not found this already, Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum released her free 2005 Christmas Angel on her website today :-)

Q. Do you do your stash shopping at your LNS, ONS, or both? Which do you
like better? Why?


A. I like to do both... while it is always a treat to go to a real needlework shop and to look around and see things in person, as well as chat with others there, I also find that I do quite a lot of my needlework shopping online. There is often so much more to find online, and sometimes the prices are much better.

Beautiful!
Thanks for helping me finally 'get into' my Mirabilia stash with the stitch-along. I really needed to do something different.The little boy's face is finished and his cap is looking good (Giggles in the Snow).

Carol, sometimes even a little progress is better than no progress! She's looking fantastic on that fabric! Hope you get more stitching time tonight!

Congrats on getting at least a few stitches in.

The new MLI freebie is pretty-- looks like it will be a nice companion to the 1997 angel.
