Last stitched finishes for 2011

Well I think this will be my last stitched finishes for the year. I am hoping I will have sometime to get them finished into ornies, pillows or framed by Saturday. We will see:)

The piece on the left was a freebie from Primitive Traditions called Christmas wishes. I stitched it on 32 count light sand with ST Forest Glade. The next two came out of the 2011 JCS Ornament magazine. The top one is Brittercup Designs--Christmas Cat Tree, it was stitched on 36 count cream with DMC. The bottom ornie is LHN's--Fresh Fallen Snow, stitched on 32 count Olive Green with ST Forest Glade and DMC 3865.

This one is from Theron Traditions--Stray Pins and Mom's Scissors. I think I will be making a pin pillow out of this one. I stitched this on some 32 count I had in my stash. I also used overdyed threads I had in my stash.

I am so happy to have this one stitched. It is from Blackbird Designs Quilt book called Weekend. I stitched the model and knew I would stitch this one for myself. I even found a frame in my stash for this. I will be framing it tomorrow sometime--maybe even later today. I can't wait to have it done. I stitched this one on 32 count tea dyed linen with the overdyed threads called for.

I am planning on doing more stitching the next few days but I don't think I will have anymore finished until the New Year. In fact I will be stitching with the girls tomorrow:)

Happy New Year!!!!!
