I did some sewing and finishing

Wow!  I am really making up for lost time.  I was able to put my new sewing machine into some good use.  Trying to tackle my ever growing pile of cross stitch projects to complete. 

This first one is a Christmas one I stitched a few years ago.  I think it was a freebie from Gazette94.

This next one is from an old magazine.  Not sure which one.

Lastly, is a freebie from the Blueladie Design February 2016 newsletter. 
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

Here are some WIPS in progress

Good Morning everyone,

I should actually say they were in progress.  Unfortunately, I have an appointment tomorrow for the eye doctor because my prescription has changed.  My eyes are straining and I can't see to stitch.  I am very annoyed because this is setting me back a few weeks.

Here are 2 projects I am doing.  The first one is the 2nd part of Palko-Lap's 2016 SAL.  We could pick our own color palette of 3 colors.  I chose grey and pink on white linen.

2nd WIP is called Halloween Inky Dinks by Sanman Originals 2009.  I have been a member of her board for about 9 years.  I love her designs.  I hand-dyed some Monaco fabric and will make this into a pillow.  I am about 3/4 done now.
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day.

Sorry for not being here

Hi everyone,

I am sorry it has been almost 2 years since I have posted, but last year was a very trying time with lots of changes.  I don't want to bore you all with the details but we now live in Kentucky.  It is nice and we are getting to know the area.

I thought now that things have settled I can begin to chronical my stitching again.  I bought a new sewing machine last month and finally got some really good thread.  I was hoping to tackle my many finished stitching projects to get turned into something to display.  Unfortunately, my kids are home because of a snow day.  I am happy they are home, but I don't want to sew when they are here.  Hope to get some done next week.

Here are some current finishes I have done.  As soon as I make them into ornaments or pillows I will repost the results.

I just put the last stitch on this new freebie by Hands on Design.  It is on her website.  I used Carrie's Creation Pacific Blue and DMC 309 and 899 on light pink evenweave.

 Next, I finished the freebie Love U in Blueladie Designs Feb 2016 newsletter.  Done with the Carries Creation Pacific Blue and 321 on pink evenweave.

Next is a biscornu I created for Valentine's Day.  It is called Simple Hearts by Elizabeth's Needlework Designs and it is in the Just Cross Stitch 2015 ornament issue.  I did it with DMC 115 and 310 on white 18ct linen.
Well I don't want to overburden you with photos right now.  I will try to post some more tomorrow of finishes and WIPS.
Thanks for looking,
