Christmas Joy

Merry Christmas to all!!

I changed the colors slightly and I wish I had used a little darker fabric, but it's still nice and pretty and very sparkly.  All that metallic braid cooperated nicely, as well.

Here's the Holly Jolly Humbug:

I have the Just Nan Gingerbread Cube all stitched, I just need to put the beads on this week.  I think I will try to get back to Curl Up for New Year's with a few little things thrown in for good measure.

Merry Christmas!

Finished Finshes

At last!

Next time will be the Christmas stitching and other WIP update.  Next week is busy, so it will hopefully be New Year's Eve for that.  I might even have a finish if I get off this time sucker and get to stitching!

Merry Stitching!

Progress Report

I've been so lax on updating!  I have been stitching up a storm, though.  I have finished stitching the Halloween Quadrille.

I was hoping to get it put together this week, but I don't think that's going to happen. 

I made a tiny bit of progress on the Trick or Treat Sampler, not as much as I had hoped for.

There are two more bands done on this since this picture was taken;  just not in the mood for Halloween at the moment, lol.

I stitched an ornament for an exchange next week, Holly Jolly by Kincavel Krosses.

It turned out much nicer than I expected.  I need to get it sewn into a humbug ASAP.

And I caved and started something new.  I just couldn't resist the new Just Nan Gingerbread Cube.

I don't expect I will have this done by Christmas because I was bad and started another Christmas piece yesterday.  The next update will show that and the two finishes I got back, three if I get the humbug together.  Although, I might not get to sit here again until New Year's.  And I really want to do a winter piece before I start on Easter.  So much to do, sigh.

Happy Stitching,
