Merry Christmas! (and a page finish)

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!

I've been putting my holiday to good use so far and I completed page 13/28.  I can't wait to get past that halfway point!

Happy Holidays and Merry Stitching!

North Pole Socks

Okay, I'm now ready for the Big Day.  Whew, it was close.

I have still been stitching as well, and have completed half a page on Nature's Little Helper.

Somehow, this page isn't as exciting as I had hoped.  I hope to be done with it at New Year's.  I'm really looking forward to giving her a body on the next page! 

Hope all of you have a peaceful and merry Christmas!

Happy Stitching,

More NLH Page Finishes

Yes, finishes, plural.  Ok, they are only partial pages, but hey, it's still pages of the pattern completed.  Humor me.  This makes 12/28 pages complete and I'm getting closer to that halfway point.  I've been seeing so many beautiful HAED (and others!) finishes it's making me a little envious.  So, I'm going to try to complete this piece in 2013.  Now, I am easily distracted (have you seen this?  It looks awesome on the black she posted on Facebook.  Not to mention the Couch Dragon and Mini Celestial Dreams I got in the last sale) and you know what they say about the best laid plans...  If I do finish this in 2013, I will finally be able to begin Curl Up With A Good Book guilt free. 

The Christmas socks are now looking iffy to be finished in time.  I'm on the heel flap of the second sock, so there is a slim chance, but I've finally been bitten by the stitching bug again and I just don't pick them up enough.  I like the progress I've been seeing on the stitching front! 

Happy Stitching,

NLH Page Finish #10

Woo Hoo!!  Another page finish.  This makes 10/28 complete.  There are 8 full pages left and 10 half pages.  The next page is a half page and I WILL have it done by the end of the first week of the new year.  I hope.  I am now thinking it is entirely possible I could finish this piece at or near the end of 2013.  Provided I don't work on anything else.  I think I'm getting back to the one-at-a-time mindset.  Oh, you want a picture?

I finished one of the Christmas socks, but didn't take a picture.  I have high hopes of the pair being done in time for Christmas Day. 

Happy Stitching,
