Some finishes to ring in the new year!
Like many I have taken a small break from posting and such because the holidays were a busy time and with James being home from school I was spending a lot of time with him. It was nice to have everyone together like they were. It makes me sad a little that everything is back to normal and my days are spent being by myself again. While I was away from my blog I was stitching my time away! I have 4 finishes to show off! The first one is from Lizzie Kate called my favorite time of the year, the second one is my personal favorite it is called Holly and Berries by LHN. I had seen this on Sadies blog last month and had to have it for myself and now I do! The third one is called Cherish each new day by the Gentle Art. I made this for a crafting group I am in every month we have to send out a handmade gift to our assigned partner so I made this into something she can hang on her door. The last one is from the series Barefoot angels of the month club by Curtis Boehringer. I have had this pattern for over 5 years now and have finally picked it up. This angel is for January. I will be stitching a new one each month. I currently have 2 projects in my rotation that I will be going back and forth with. The 2 I am working on now is Season's Greetings by Bent Creek and 1 of the 4 patterns from the Prairie Schooler book Santa and friends. Next week I am going to start stitching here and there on a stocking that I am doing with a group of ladies. It is from the Better Home and Garden series. I will be stitching the Stitcher's Studio stocking. I have to wait until we get paid on the weekend at that time I will be purchasing my fabric to get started. Winter has hit hard in Ohio so I have been spending a lot of time inside and stitching my days away and getting a lot done as well!
