In the box

Good morning my friends.
So glad you could visit with me.
This month of August has flown by and now it`s time for `Smalls SAL`.

I made up this design from a `Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments` pattern
for my small this month.

Now it is `In the box` ready for my Christmas display in December.

These were what I sent for my part in last months`Christmas in July Swap`.
We had to make three things from the letters of `Christmas`.
I took R = Reindeer.
M= mouse.
S = Santa.
Love these little guys.

Mouse from `Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments`.

The front.

The back.

All three together.
They went to O`faigh of Oldbury Cottage.
O`faighs blog is in my side bar.
Also a thank you to Cheryll of Gone Stitching
 for organizing this as swap Momma. 
Today Hubby has another eye operation.
The oil is to be removed to be replaced with fluid and lens 
put in. He should have his vision back. :)
My shoulder operation has been put on hold.:(
Thank you for visiting.
Happy Stitching,
