I hope everyone is staying warm today. It is VERY cold here and snowing. Glad it is my day off today. I am excited and a little embarassed to show you today two projects that I have had stitched for several years. I am not sure how this started but I have been finishing alot of things I have had stitched but never finished. It wasn’t even a new year’s resolution but am glad I am doing it. I see these now finished and think to myself, ahh! now I can enjoy it. So with out further ado:
This I remember stitching while I was pregnant with Madison so some of you know how old it is. My intention was to stitch a few a these and place them in a wreath for Christmas. My mom made one for a friend one year and I thought it was really cool. Well, needless to say, I made one and half of one which is still in my stash. This is in a Leisure Arts book but cannot remember which one. So it is now finished and I will either include it in my ornament collection or still buy a wreath but a small one and hang it in there.
#2 is this:
This was actually a retreat project from A Stitcher’s Retreat in 2002. I don’t even think these exist anymore. In my opinion, they weren’t as good as Dyeing to Stitch anyway. This design was by Heart in Hand and for the longest time I was going to frame it. I was awake one night and thought why do I need to frame it. I will just do this and hang it up. Viola! Finally after 12 years it has a life!
I have another oldie but I will save that for another post.
My something new which I am so excited about came in the mail last Friday. It is:
The Bountiful Blessings kit I purchased form Threadwork Primitives. I can not wait to get this started and has everything in the kit to stitch and finish it. Thanks so much Nan for putting together such a wonderful kit.
That’s it for today!
Stay warm my friends wherever you are!
