WOW!!! I have a post!!!!

First off,  I has been forever since my last post!!!  I am really going to try to do better this year but I think I say that EVERY year!!!  I really do like to keep track of what I have stitched here but I failed miserably last year.  So let's try it again.

Here is my First start and finish of 2018!!

The Primitive Hare's - A Stitcher's Sampler.
It was stitched on a 30 count linen by WDW with DMC thread 3799.
Found this frame at the thrift shop for $7.99 less 25%!!
Started on 1-1-18
Finished on 1-11-18

 This is a Lizzie Kate.  It is the February Stamp Flip-it.  
I started this series last year for my DIL and this is the last one!
It was stitched on a 28 count mystery linen with DMC threads.
Now on to FFO it.
Started on 1-11-18
Finished on 1-13-18

On a quick note from last year's stitching.  I stitched the ornies on the outside for the grands this year.  I stitched six for them and then I stitched two more for someone who wanted to buy them.  The one in the middle is what I will be stitching this year for the grands.  I need to get going and start them now.  The designer for these is Stitchy Fish Designs.  Both designs are in the JCS magazine.  the outside ones from the 2017 Ornament Issue and the middle one is from the Nov/Dec 2017 issue I believe.

I hope everyone had a Happy New Year and that 2018 will be a great year for everyone.

There is a bit of a catch up.  Let's hope I do better this year.

Thanks for stopping by:)

Hi Mama Joan: Nice to see a post from you.
Great projects you have stitched.
I love finding frames at the thrift shop, they are so much better then the ones at Joann's or Michael's, the older frames seem to be better constructed.

Good to see your post! I really like the ornaments you stitched for the grands in 2017. Need to go check out that issue! Congratulations on your framed finish and the LK heart finish!
