Christmas stitching

My brother has a cute little Cavalier King Charles spaniel dog called 'Taz' and i usually send him a small treat in their Christmas stocking.

Forward planning and trying to be organised this year, i decided to make a little felt bag using the 'Woof Spoken Here' free chart from Stitchy Kitty which i stitched on 28ct mushroom evenweave. I'm hoping it will disguise the smell of the treat till the big day, and he doesn't rip the packaging till he gets the OK from his master LOL

No sign of this years JCS Ornament Issue yet, so i've spent a nice few hours browsing the older ones i have. Its been lovely, you do forget lots of the designs in there.
This little one is from the 2000 issue and is by Gentle Arts. I love the nordic blue jobelan its stitched on. A quick stitch/finish that i did whilst DH spent a very wet Sunday at home catching up with computer stuff on my laptop. Thank you for your good wishes for him, he's still in pain so i guess we'll be off to the dentist again this week or the hospital for the operation the dentist thought he might need to sort it out.

I hope you all had a nice weekend. Thanks for stopping by and leaving me comments, i do appreciate all the help, advice and encouragement you give.

I like the Woof Spoken stitching, I have seen that one too. I know our dog would smell out the treat before Christmas!

Two cute finishes.
I hope you get your JCS magazine soon.
I do hope your DH gets feeling better, nothing is worst then a tooth ache.

I love the doggy treat bag Julie! What a unique idea. Also love the ornament. I'm getting a little impatient for the JCS ornie mag too now.

Hope your DH gets some relief soon.

Love the dog bag. What a neat idea. And I need to get my older xmas magazines out and search for some ornaments to stitch this year.
Hope DH is feeling better soon.

What a cute little pouch for the pooch! The birdie ornament looks so pretty on that blue fabric.

I hope your DH finds relief from his pain very soon.

Great finishes Julie - I especially love the robin ornie. :0)
So hope your DH doesn't need an op & feels much better soon.

Oh, more nice stitches!!
It's hard to post finishes at this time of year, because no one wants to spoil a surprise. :o) I still like to read posts even if there isn't a progress picture.

Thanks for the link to Stitchy Kitty.

Oh dear me sounds like your poor DH is having a rough time at the moment, and you are not faring that much better with all the noise.

The little bag and the ornament are both very pretty
