A few more finishes...

I had a couple of finishes this week.

 Stitched up these Santa's for the grands this year.  Sorry for the glare.  I don't take very good pictures.
I stitched these up through the year and just finished them this week.  My hubby spray painted the snowflakes and I embellished them.  As of now I have 6 grands, so I have an ornie for my tree and one extra!!!  The design is from Charland Designs called Santa Topper from Just Cross Stitch Ornament Magazine.  Not sure which year though.

 This is Foxwood Crossings-RFD Sledding stitched on brown 14 count perforated paper with DMC threads.
Started 11-7-2016
Finished 11-9-2016
How cute is this, I love it!

Lastly, Stacy Nash's --December 25th Merry Christmas stitched on 32 count ice dyed linen by me with DMC threads.
Started 11-5-2016
Finished 11-7-2016

That's it for today.
Hope you all are having a great weekend and HAPPY STITCHING!!!

Did some dying today.  I dyed a piece of 32 count and 36 count linen.
I am going to use to 36 count for Plum Street Samplers-Olga's Autumn Stocking.
This is my version of Vintage Pearled Barley.  Tried to match it to DMC 842.
I think it will work out great.

Trying to be proactive!!!

I have had a couple of stitching finishes and thought I would try to get them posted right away.
So not like me:)

 First up is this piece from The Trilogy called Round Robin.  This was a stitch that our retreat group decided to do as a group project for our birdhouse retreat this last August.
The tin was from Micheal's that my hubby spray painted brown.
I stitched this back in March and finally finished it the other day.  I think it turned out pretty cute.
Stitched on 32 count Clay with DMC thread.
Started and Finished the stitching 3-14-2016.

 This stocking is from The Ladies Prim Society Club.  I just received this last week.  It is designed by
Heartstring Samplery.  The piece is called Winter Snow Stocking.  Stitched on 35 count Heartstring Blend with Weeks Dye Works thread.
Started 10-28-2016
Finished 10-30-2016

Lastly is this With Thy Needle and Thread piece called Summer Saltbox.  I have had this for a bit and decided it was time to get it done.  Even though this was stitched on 32 count over one thread, it stitched up pretty quick.  I just love it--sooo cute.
Stitched on 32 count French Lace with DMC thread one over one.
Started 10-30-2016
Finished 10-31-2016

Well there you have it for today. I am off to do some more sewing and finishing today and 
stitching tonight.

Hope everyone is having a great week.

Happy Stitching,
