Good sunday everyone! Hope you are staying warm in this snowy winter.
here are my two YOTA projects. I made progress on both!
Mirabilia's Silver Moon Tea

And HAED Fun Guys Snowballs Stocking.
Have 7 of 12 pages done and working on 2 pages.
We have the last of the indoor amaryllis blooming.
This was not supposed to be a Red Lion amaryllis... We have dozens. As a result I cross pollinated Red Lion with this amaryllis. I hope that the new seeds will result in a hybrid that looks more like it. Need to look up the name of this plant.
I have completed and am working on quite a few smalls. Save that for the smalls update at the end of the month.

My seour ami sent me more pictures of her tiny knitted creations. I am always amazed at Michelle's perfect knitting and attention to details.
 Adorable Hello Kitty's!!!!
I love the Hello Kitty bead purse. Michelle knits these marvelous animals with knitting needles that are the size of hat pins. Using DMC #12 and #8 perle cottons or DMC wool. Standing about 2 1/2 inches tall. Tiny pieces are knitted and sewn together. Absolutely amazing work. Michelle has sent me many animals and they make me smile every day.

Happy stitching everyone an thanks for stopping by!
