Some tiny stitching

I'm working on some models for The Primitive Jewel. These aren't brand new so I can show them. I'm doing 2 each of 3 different designs. The ones I did up today are Aqua Queen.

Snowmaggedon progress

After 'undecorating' for Christmas and putting up my snowmen for January, then shoveling for a while(even though it continued and continued to snow) I finally sat down in the evening and finished up part 2. Again, the picture doesn't show the brassy look to the fabric but the sparkle shows up.

First finish of the new year

Here is part 1 all finished. This one is closer to how it looks....it is a bit more yellow than this and a bit of the sparkle is showing up in the picture.
I worked in the basement all morning/early afternoon and sat down to put the finishing touches on this before dinner....posting then will go back to stitching for the evening.

Welcome 2014

2013 was a good year for us, nothing too stressful but we will be having some changes this year with our daughter finishing her last year of high school and starting college.

My stitching goals, I don't really make ones like that as my choices change as the mood of what to stitch does....I do have a bunch of Prairie Schoolers I want to do as well as most of my stash. LOL But I KNOW that's not possible(most of the stash part) as I have wayyyy too much.

I had hoped to get my part 1 of Lizzie Kate Holly & Hearts finished before midnight but cooking, eating and then a brief doze(to get my 2nd wind) with stitching in my lap about 9 put me behind so I'm sure it will be done today as my first finish of the year.

I had 45 finishes for 2013...not as many ornaments as last year so the # was down but it's still a good # for me.
