Three Finishes and a WIP

Many of you will remember the stitching frenzy I had last year trying to get the 12 Days of Christmas by The Sweetheart Tree done before Christmas and how I finished just before Christmas. Well this year I started Just Nan's 12 Days in January and planned on getting them all done early. You know about the best laid plans of mice and men, now I'm back in a stitching frenzy trying to get these done on time. This week I have finished Days 6, 7 and 8 and Day 9 is started. I'm going to keep working on them until they are all finished. Tracy cut the foam core board for all of them tonight and so there will be no excuse for me not to get them on the tree this year. If you have missed the pictures of the first 5 Days and would like to see them they are in their own album on Webshots (link to my Webshots in sidebar)







WIP......

I started this Snowflake from the Cross Stitch Card Shop at the beginning of the week. It's stitched on 32 count Dark Blue Jobelan (or is it Lugana?) with Kreinik #4 Braid in Silver. Not sure what I'm going to do as a finish for it but thinking a little silver frame would be nice.








That's it for my week. Now the weekend is here and no NASCAR :o( I'll be watching (or listening) to movies on Saturday and watching Football on Sunday while stitching away on the remaining 12 Days.
Until Next Time....Have a Great weekend with lots of stitching
