Happy New Year!

I am still alive and stitching! I have been very negligent in posting to my blog but I have been stitching. Here is an ornament from Country Cottage Needleworks that was in one of the JCS ornament issues. It was a Christmas gift for a coworker. She loves snowmen.

On New Year's Day I decided a new start was in order. This is "Spring Violets" by Hands to Work. I'm stitching it on Picture This Plus "Shadow" 32 ct Belfast. I've had to make some changes to some of the letters because they were hard to read.

Next up is another Christmas gift. This too was for a coworker who loves to shop for shoes. So what could be better for her than JBW's "Shoe Shopper." It's done on 25 ct cream Lugana.

This was my latest finish. Blackbird Design's "Union Forever" stitched on R&R Reproductions "Antique Cotton." The color doesn't show really well in this picture, it's a lovely linen to stitch on.

I hope to be back in a couple of days to update you on some other finishes that I've had in the last few months. I've got my sewing machine out and want to finish them before I show them to you.

Until next time,
