The last two weeks of December, I had a week off in between Christmas and New Year's day. So this past week it was back to my regular 4-10 hr. days and it kicked my butt! I had no energy to stitch or do much of anything. Then Wednesday, it was stitch or bake oatmeal raisin cookies. Which would you do? I baked!
I am now caught up with my starts and here they all are:
I'm going to stitch on this this evening because it stitches up fast.
Here's Majestic Bird from the 2013 JCS ornament issue. It's going to be pretty!
I'm using an R&R fabric called Liberty Gathering Grey (I think, amazing how fast I forget what I'm using!). It has a more chalkier color than this picture. It reminds me of slate, which goes really good with all the colors here. So far I have part of the horse's body and some outline. And....
And amazingly, I won a couple of things from Claudette of BAP Attack fame and look what she sent..
And the turtle needle minder above it all. It is so cute! My needle minder population (hoard?) is growing and the turtle makes it 8. Love needle minders!
I've got domestic duties to take care of so I'm off. It's a gloomy, rainy day today, perfect for stitching! I hope those of you dealing with the sub-zero temps are keeping safe and warm. The recent events taking place in Paris and elsewhere has me thinking that our time on this Earth is not guaranteed so lets make the best of the time we have! Take care everyone!
