2 Finishes and a New Start

Happy New Year everyone.  I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday last month.  Ours was nice but low key.

I had some small finishes last month.  I was finally able to complete the last 2 of the series (January and December) into pillows.  This series is by Hands On Design and were in Cross Stitch and Needlework Magazine 2014.  It was 2 per issue.

Not perfect but that is ok.  I accidentally attached the back the wrong way for December so I had to cut it off.  On the left side the trees are pointing down instead of up but it is done and still cute.  I am not going to stress over it and I didn't want to throw it away.

I have a new big start that I will rotate with my Circle des Cirque.  It is called White Tigers and it is by Jeanette Crews Designs.  It is in the  Stoney Creek Collection Encore #8106 book.  I am using 32ct Pearl Gray linen.  I just started on Tuesday so not a lot of progress so far.

Here is an updated picture of my Circle des Cirque.  I am almost done with page 3.  I will work on this every other week until it is done.

Thanks for looking.


  1. Super finishes, Mary! You are off to a good start on White Tigers. I look forward to seeing your progress updates on both your pieces. Happy New Year!

  2. Your two FFOs look gorgeous to me and Circle des Cirques is amazing! Good luck with your new start, too.


  3. i love the two projects you finished as pillows and your coming right along on the ink circles project. Nice start on the White Tigers!

  4. Good heavens, the Circle des Cirques is terrific, what a lot of beautiful stitching.

  5. I really like your new decorative designs! it's so beautiful so much and good idea on site.
