Santa Day 10-10, A Finish, A WIP and A Start

Santa Day was a very good stitching day for me (well most of the day was). I worked on a total of 3 projects and after a visit from the froggies did manage to get some work done.

A Finish.....
'Tis The Season by JBW Designs
Stitched on 28ct Water Lily Linen
with WDW and DMC
This turned out to be a quick design to stitch and very enjoyable to do. I think I will attempt to do a "cube" with this or maybe a flatfold. I have another JBW tree design in my stash that I'll have to pull out to do to match it.
A WIP......

This is where I had a visit from the darn froggies. They really like the eyelet's and wanted me to stitch them over and over. Not as much progess as I would have liked but every stitch done today will be one less to do tomorrow. I know it won't be done for Christmas this year, maybe next.


Just Nan's "Christmas Soldiers"
A Start....





I really need another Fall piece to go on my new shelf and I just couldn't pass up this adorable design. I'm stitching the pumpkin on 32 ct Lambswool Jobelan with WDW Terra Cotta. In the picture the threads look more red than they actually are. This will be another quick stitch and hope to have it finished by the end of the weekend.
We are finally having some Fall like temps. It got down into the high 40's last night. Great sleeping weather but I'm afraid it won't last as it is predicted to be back up in the 80's the first of next week. Hope you are having a enjoyable weekend with nice weather.
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

Congrats on the finish, I need to see if I have an appropriate piece of material to start on mine! The pumpkin and Just Nan look superb as well! We are in the 80's in MI today! Thats about 15 degrees warmer than average. I love it!
