haha! i tend to have a hard time hanging on to gifts until the occasion as well. birthday gifts from me don't stay wrapped very long. even if people like to wait and be surprised they get so sick of hearing me say "open it, open it, open it!" that they ususally give in.

i'm planning on putting everything into a box though, so it's out of my sight.

I was thinking the same thing. I wrapped my mom's towel today and put it in a plastic bag until I find a good box.

This is a card that I made for my sister-in-law who is a cat lover. The card has silver lace around the frame. I madeit so she can cut the card in half and hand the picture up. I put card on the back and placed some ribbon to hang it by.

Here is a sachet and a bookmark for my friend. The bookmark is a Celtic knot.
I have never done cross stitching before and I found out that I like it. I want to make a wall hanging. That will be a larger project and one that will be done a bit at a time.

Love all the stuff you guys are doing. I keep trying to post on the yahoo group site but for some reason it never shows up. Paula, you've done a great job on all your cross-stitching. I have a couple of cross-stitch finishes,too. I'll take a pic as soon as I get new batteries.  Roll Eyes
