Linda is stitching a Christmas train and has some wonderful Kathy Schenkel Halloween ornaments finished to show off, plus a Kelly Clark pear.  I love the dimensional look.

I love this little kitten stocking.  Isn't it charming?

How about this baseball player ornament?  Perfect for the fan in your life and beautifully finished with a bead that looks a bit like a baseball at the base of the hanging loop.

Row of Ladies Mystery with a Twist Finished (and Started!) UPDATED

Ruth Schmuff just finished her first Mystery with a Twist canvas, a series of six Asian ladies, all in fancy outfits.   Ruth decided that some folks enjoy relaxed mystery classes that are more than a few months long and which aren't really set to any deadline.  This is the result.

UPDATE:  Ruth has managed to talk Lee Designs into a companion piece.  Six more ladies in fancy outfits!  This will be an upcoming Mystery with a Twist piece for the shop.  Email Ruth if you want to stitch the second row or if you never got around to the first row.

By the way, Ruth's regular mystery class (Hal Mayforth's Boo) is coming right along.  Who would have thought to have little waving ghost hands!
