I wanted to post the last stitches and finishes of 2016.
Here they are:
I stitched this piece called Holly Jolly Soul by With Thy Needle and Thread last January. It was my
first stitched finish of 2016. But I just did the final finishing in December. I think he turned out
I stitched this piece after seeing Carolina Stitchers pieces. This is a Sue Hillis Design called Peace
from 2009 JCS Ornament magazine.

I received this Lizzie Kate kit from one of my stitching buds last year for Christmas. Decided
it should be stitched and finished for this year.

Pineberry Lane - A Sprig of Holly from Punch Needle and Prim Stitcher magazine.
Stitched on 32 count coffee dyed linen with DMC.
Sled is Shepherd's Bush - Santa Sled.
Another piece I stitched at the beginning of 2016. This is a Abby Rose - Share the Joy of Christmas.
I found this frame in my stash, a thrift shop find, just had to repaint it.
I think this one turned out pretty good too!

I finished stitching this Shepherd's Bush stocking earlier this year for my son-in-law. Again

There may have been a few more finishes for 2016 that I didn't record. If I get myself organized I may post them also.
I did have 65 finished for the year!
Now here is my first start and finish for 2017.
Cloudsfactory - I cross stitch quote.
Stitched on 28 count white linen with DMC.
Hope to get this framed in the next day or so.
So as I say almost every year I want to be better at posting because I use my
blog as a log for myself to keep track of what I do. Not sure I will do that but I
will try my best.
Happy New Year to everyone and I hope 2017 is wonderful for everyone:)
