Fun stitch

At the end of 2011 I was browsing through my magazines looking for things to stitch that have been just glanced over. There was this lovely Blackbird Design in August 2003 of JCS. It's called Summer Jubilee. It is to be stitched on Blackbird linen but my LNS had something close "Black Sheep'. It was nice stitching on this even with it being a dark linen. I love the muted shades of this patriotic piece. I'm not a big Americana fan but this one is nice.

Beautiful birds

This is the first in the series from 2010 JCS of birds. I'm planning to make a bellpull banner out of them.

First finish for 2012

this is Sunflower Seed's Celtic ornament #3 from 2011 JCS ornament issue....I plan to finish it as they show in the picture.

Time for a fresh start

I love the new year as I start clearing out the past years papers and get an urge to purge. ;)
Be sure to check out my 2nd page here of sale leaflets....I have a lot more for sale at my photobucket albums but these are my most current stitched and fun pieces. Some are links to the photobucket pages ie: CEC & magazines as there are too many to picture individually here.

I still need to get a picture of my first finish of the year and post it.

Happy New Year

Well, I didn't get the ornament quite finished in time for New Years but I'm okay with 114 finishes for the year. What is your goal for this new year? I don't have a goal of #'s but I would like to see more of my already accumulated stash being stitched as I did this year.
We were very blessed this past year with good health and loving family. Hope to be just as blessed this year of 2012.
