First Finishes of 2010

Since I didn't have to work on Friday or the weekend I have been able to stitch my heart out. I have not been able to do this much stitching at one time since we have moved to Aberdeen. Here are two things that I have finished totally.


This first design is from Midnight Stitching. It's called Quaker Faith, Hope, Love. I have been wanting to stitch this for quite awhile. I stitched it on 40 ct Natural Newcastle over two with one thread of DMC.

I saw this design on Staci's blog sometime ago and couldn't wait to stitch this either. It's a Homespun Elegance design: A Quaker year--Merry Winter. This was also stitched on 40 ct, the fabric is Sandstone, stitched over two with one strand of Belle Soie, Cranberry and Cinnamon Stick. Another fun and pretty quick stitch.

Not sure what I am going to stitch next, but I plan on stitching until I have to go back to work tomorrow at 4.

Happy Stitching!!!
