Stitching Updare

I had a hard time staying on task with stitching until I got my order of threads from 123Stitch on Saturday. Saturday I worked a little on each of these projects and then Sunday I decided it was time to get another finish.


"Charmed 12 Days of Christmas"
by Hinzeit
Stitched on 28 count Beige Jobelan with GAST
I worked on this on and off all year and it is now finished and ready to go to the framers. I love the little charms and wish you could see them better (you can get a close up if you click on the picture). There is no way I would attempt to frame this myself since it will need several spacers because of the charms.
These are the projects I will work on for the rest of the week in the order they should be finished.

"January Stamp" by LK
This needs to be finished by Thursday so I can hang it on the Seasonal Shelf. The other stamps have only taken a couple of days to do so I should have this one done in time. It's a snowman so January will be Snowman Mania at our house when it come to decorating.

"Heartfelt Harvey" by Imaginating,Inc.
design is in the 2008 JCS Christmas Ornament Issue
Stitched on 32ct White Opalescent Linen with DMC 321
I love the look of this fabric but it is a PITA to work on.

This one is taking a little longer than I expected but it's always slow going for me with the over dyed floss and having to cross each stitch as I go. This will probably be my first finish in 2009.
Until Next Time....Have a GREAT week with lots of stitching

The Hinzeits are very attractive. My eye always go to those when in the LNS. I know what you mean about the opalescent material! Especially if the silver thread is thick! I love the tree, it's one I plan to do next year!
