I've been a bad bad blogger

Apologies to those of you that have actually paid any attention to my blog. I do promise that in the new year I will go back to posting on here. A lot of stuff that I've worked on has been posted on my Facebook page, Ollie's Designs. The main thing that I've been working on is my first HAED project.  89 colors and 18 pages in the will be huge. I hope that everyone has had a wonderful Holiday season and that the New Year brings you happiness and peace.

20th Happy Dance of 2012

This is a bookmark that my friend requested for her daughter. I've included a picture of it before I started the backstitching. I've always liked how the backstitching makes it pop.
