Finishing June with a few finishes

I have been keeping busy with stitching although not as much as I would have liked to do. I was hoping to make the birthday gift for my sister whose birthday was last week but I could not find the mojo to make anything that I liked for my sister so I caved in and got her a present at the store instead. I have however managed to get a few finishes done. The first one is by LHN and the other one is by Willow Ridge Designs. It is called Patchwork Christmas. As you can see from my finishes my mind frame is holiday oriented all of sudden. When summer gets here I like to do my holiday stitching between both Halloween and Christmas. I also was the lucky winner last week of the giveaway on my friend's blog. Mary T had a giveaway of the following design Sea to Shining Sea by Cross eyed Cricket. I don't have a picture of the design to show though. I am hoping to start working on this soon. My birthday is in less than a month and I have 4 designs that I want to tackle this summer if possible but I need to buy the threads needed to get started. Thanks for stopping by and for all the kind words as always!

Finally... Ps finishes and more with a thank you to my friend

I know I had not posted in almost a month here, but I have been stitching, more like at a turtle's pace though because of my Fall/ Halloween finish. I love how it looks now but I was dragging my feet a bit as well with this. Of course no matter how many pictures I have taken of this it does not do it any justice at all as to how nice it looks. I had gotten this pattern from my Friend Mary T from our Christmas exchange, I have actually stitched 3 of the designs she sent me this year, because they just were too beautiful not too. This first one is by Cross Eyed Cricket it is called Gentle Harvest. I also have finally finished the PS Christmas alphabet! I am so pleased that this is done and plan on proudly displaying them better at Christmastime. With summer coming fast a lot of my stitching will be Halloween/fall and Christmas/ winter related. I want to say thank you so much to my friend Mary T for all the lovely designs she sent me, like I said I have stitched 3 of them that she sent, the first one was back in the winter by Hinzeit, the 12 days of Christmas, then LHN's red house in winter as the picture will show of the PS alphabet on display in the trees and then the cross eyed cricket design. I have some quick finishes to do right now for Father's day so it will not take me long. Most of the finishes this month that I will be showing off will be for gifts since Fathers day and my sisters birthday is all coming up in a matter of weeks now. As always thanks for stopping by and for all your kind words.
