Lots of finishes for me to post this week. Several cards for friends and co-workers

And a partially finished baby stitch. It just needs the final baby details and then I can finish and make into a card

Welcome winter.  Woke to snowy skies and snowy roads.  Since I belong to the "get up early and beat the traffic" club, I was at the office by 5:50 and got quite a bit of actual work done before everyone else started to roll in.

I took a break from everything else I was working on and dub the "Autumn Cats" pattern out over the weekend. Decided I would focus on it and get it done. 

And I thought I had it done until I showed it to someone today  and realized I didn't finish the tail on one of the cats. This will be a quick finish tonight and then to get it framed at some point.

I also started ( and finished) one of my WOCS projects, "Tulips in a jug", for the Tulip quilt.
It's hard to tell from the picture, but it is stitched on mint green fabric.  Someone donated enough fabric to the group for 12 squares and it should be a beautiful quilt when it is done.

Stay warm,

Making great progress on the birthday  cards for the first part of the year.  Mailed my cards for WOCS today, along with my "snips and snails" project for the "what are little boys made of quilt".

Next up is to continue work on the "Rainforest" project by Artecy and the "tulips" and "month of the year" project for WOC.

Happy Valentine's Day!  Ok, so I am a month early, but I've been stitching up a storm making cards for WOCS.

15 in total and now I'm ready to make a few to give friends and family. I made a "conversation" heart  pattern and it's pretty cute, but I may need to try and make it a little bigger.  I'm also starting to work on some birthday cards for friends. I have several friends and co-workers who all have birthdays from mid-February through mid-March.  I have one stitched, and 4 more to go.

Busy times,

Happy New Year, boy have I been a slacker when it comes to posting on my blog. I've been busy stitching Valentine's/ heart patterns for cards for WOCS. I have 8 done so far and want to get a couple more done.  I am also designing some "conversation" type hearts with words that I will send to the group if anyone else wants to make some.  Still working on the designs, but should have the template done today.  Next up for that group is a tulip pattern.  And of course, the first couple months of the year are filled with friends birthday's so I need to make 5 cards by mid-February...

Will post pics soon.

Take care.
