A small finish plus joining WIPocalypse 2014

Happy Sunday. Hope everyone is having a great day.  I was reading Measi's blog over at http://measi.net/measiblog/ and she is hosting the 2014 WIPocalypse.  It sounds like fun and not stressful so I figured why not and joined.  It should help motivate me to get more done.

I do want to show you a small finish.  My son Blakley requested a monthly ornament to hang on his door knob so here is one for Feburary.  It was November's SAL on a cross stitch group I belong to on Facebook.  It is a free design by tiny modernist.  He turned out so cute.


Here is an update on a pattern from an old CS&N magazine.  I spent a few days on it but put it down until the New Year when my kids go back to school.

Last weekend I decided to pick up my Ink Circles.  I managed to make some progress on it.  I will put it back into rotation in January.
Lastly, I decided to start and hopefully finish this in December.  It is December's challenge on facebook.  It is a design from Sunshine Stitches.  I hope I don't run out of green but it is satin and I might have to order more.  I love the colors.
Well as always I appreciate you looking at my work and I truly hope you have a wonderful holiday.

A few more pillows made.

Hi everyone.  Gosh, I am on a roll.  I love stitching but have to be in the mood to "finish" them.  I hope to have a few more done tomorrow.

The pillow in the front is a freebie by The Stitcherhood called Autumn.  The one in the back is also a freebie called Falling Leaves by the DMC Corporation.


Thanks for letting me share.

Sorry it has been so long

Wow! Where has the time gone?  I am sorry I haven't posted in a while.  I have completed several things but needed to finish them.  I plan on doing that this week.  I have 2 done.  The first one is 2012 Novalee02 SAL.  It is no longer available.  I made it into a pillow.  I used so much fiberfill I need to go make a run tomorrow ;)


The second is an ornament I made for my middle son.  He wants me to make an ornament for each month. This is December's.  He wanted a gingerbread man.  It is a freebie from Gloria Pat's website.  I have had it forever but I just checked and it is still available on the last page.

I usually struggle with any shape other than rectangle or square but I think it turned out good.  I hope he likes it.

Well I have to have more to show this week.
