Two more finishes

I have been on a stitching roll.
This is my third finished stitch piece since the first of the year. It is Cherry Wood Designs--Needle. I dyed some celery gingham I had and used DMC 935. I have a frame for it, just need to paint it and get it framed.
I have wanted to stitch this piece since I bought it this last summer. It is Silver Creek Samplers--Eye of the Sparrow. I stitched it on some 28 count coffee/tea fabric I dyed. I also used DMC threads with this piece. I have a frame for this piece too. Guess I will have to do some finishing this weekend.


I am really trying to limit my stash buying and stitch up what I have, since I have enough stash for a lifetime of stitching. We will see how that goes--so far so good but we are only 13 days into the New Year:)


HAPPY STITCHING.
