Happy New Year

Christmas magic!  I finished these in time to give away.


Mickey is from an issue of Cross Stitch Card Shop and the cactus is from Cross Stitcher’s Countdown to Christmas.

The end of another stitching year.  I think it was a pretty good one overall and hope 2015 will be just as good for me and everyone else.

Stitch from Stash December 2014

So here we are at the end of Stitch from Stash 2014.  I’ve been spending more time making plans for next year than stitching.  But there was still shopping.


Actually, this was all purchased with the gift certificate I won from Pull the Other Thread. Outside of that I’ve picked up some fabric pieces from EBay and a couple of magazines.  I’m using December as my exemption month.  That gives me room for that and whatever else comes along.  Like the sale at Artecy or the next issue of Cross Stitch Collection.  The CSC would be good because it has the last part of the Maria Diaz pattern, which is what the fabric in the picture is for.

Happily the month hasn’t been completely stitch free.  I have a finish to share.

I call it Penguin and Snow penguin.  It was designed by Lucie Heaton.  I’m hoping for one more finish by Christmas.  Of course it’s one of those last minute things that I just decided to start on Friday.  Still, it could happen.
