Daily Stitching

 I am loving the designs in the Dover book of Japanese designs. The two that I did this week were a little bolder so I was able to use the Perle cotton again.

                               This last one was an easy peasy one from my stencils. Did it in no time.

What I did spend time on this week were these party favors for my annual (except last year) Ladies Christmas Luncheon. I have fifteen guests for a sit-down meal, altho I have to split it between the dining room and kitchen. It's the only time I wish I had a bigger house, or at least a bigger dining room, but it all works out.
For the past few years I have made a snowman favor of some sort so when I saw these felt ornaments on Pinterest I knew I had to make them. They weren't hard to do....some gluing, a little hand embroidery, lightly stuffed and hand buttonhole stitched around the outside.

Since we are wearing masks again inside stores, I hand painted this little Christmas tree on a blank mask that I  bought at Joanne's this summer. Added a little bling with stick-on jewels. Who knew we would be wearing mask this late, but I was glad I had saved this blank. I had painted flowers on them this summer.

I'm linking up with Off the Wall Friday.

You are doing the Dover book of motifs proud. Love how they look stitched. But the handprinted mask with bling - such fun. Your friends will treasure those party favors.
