Stitching over the holiday

I did do some stitching over the holiday. The company I work for gives us Friday as a holiday in addition to Thursday, so, I finished stitching this LHN ornament,

finished these three off into ornaments

and started this one. I'm almost caught up on stitching the LHN ornaments. I want to try to finish most of them off in different style ornaments this coming weekend.

DH is making me a wooden tree to hand them on, so I have to get them all done since he's been working so hard on it for me.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving here in the States.

This is what I've been doing in my spare time. I have the next ornament started and I plan to finish it after all the cooking and cleaning up.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your holiday.

Another Finish

I finished stitching Cricket Collections The Master and the Macabre Tuesday night. I'm very happy with it.

Of course that means starting something new. I'm a little behind on stitching the LHN ornaments, so I started Under the Tree at the Stitching Night at In Stitches last night. Hopefully I can get most of it done this weekend.

Of course, one cannot go to the LNS without making a few purchases.

I saw the little sheep fob from Ewe and Eye on the counter done up as a model. I instantly fell in love. Patricia helped me scour the racks for it. Later someone was talking about the guild and Marie Driskill being a member. Patricia brought in a couple of her patters from the racks. Once again, a pattern called (more like screamed) to me. So I told her to leave The Three Wise Men with me. Now, if you have never seen this, it is something else. It is stitched on 40 ct over 1 and uses 55 DMC colors! That is going to be really intense. Don't ask me when I'll be starting it, probably next year some time. It'll probably take me a year to finish stitching it. It is beautiful, though.

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy stitching weekend.

Finally Done

March and I have been stitching on LHN's Home of a Needleworker Too for over a year. We would do a couple hours every month during our monthly Stitch and Bitch. I finally finished mine this weekend.
Now all I need it to find a frame I like for it.

When I got home I had a surprise in the mail. I received my piece for the Seasonal Exchange from Lisa V. today. All the way from Australia. It is so great. She stitched Quaker Acorn from The Workbasket. I love the little leaf she put on it. Thank you Lisa!

Michele Got it

The piece I stitched for the Autumn portion of the Seasonal Exchange arrived at Michele's house yesterday. I stitched this from The Prairie Schooler's October leaflet. I had an Altoids tin, so I used that to finish it. For anyone who wishes to know, I used Vonna's instructions. She has the best finishing tutorials.
Thanks for looking everyone.
