A finish & some w.i.p pics!

Hi all
Well I finally remembered to post a pic of my ornament for January and I manged the finishing Sunflower Sampler too! I started a new project this week, well 2 actually but 1 is my Valentine's project and I really don't have enough done to show yet. The other piece is for a Spring/Easter exchange.

First up here's my ornament:
My Mark Designs - Be Merry
2008 JCS ornament issue.
Stitched over 1 with recommended threads on 25ct antique white lugana
Stitching completed Feb 7, 2010
And here's my "finished"sunflower sampler needleroll

Country Cottage Needleworks - Sunflower Sampler

Finished as a needleroll Feb 14, 2010

Here's my new wip, I plan on finishing this as a cube which should be interesting! Hope it works out!

Hollis Designs - Budding Littles
progress as at 14 February 2010.

Thanks in advance for looking. Hope everyone has had a wonderful Valentine's day. DH & I went out for lunch which was nice. It's been a very wet weekend here which has brought some much needed relief from the awful humidity we have had, been almost too hot to stitch! Thank goodness for fans & airconditioners! I think we could do with some of the snow that our friends in the northern hemisphere have been experiencing!

Happy Stitching

Some guilt free finishes

Hi all

Well I finished couple of my guilt free January starts, one was actually finished at the end of January but I didn't get a chance to post a pic.

First up is Jeanette Douglas Designs - Tiny Christmas biscornu. This was my final January start and I finished it January 31st.

Here's my other finish, it's Country Cottage Needleworks - Sunflower Sampler. I plan on finishing it as a needleroll so have left the border off. It's already for the final finishing, just need to get the sewing machine out which will hopefully be today.

Next up to stitch is my ornament for this month and a valentine's piece. As I've already started the ornament, I'm hoping it will be done today, might even manage 2 posts in 1 day, that will be a first!

Thanks for looking
