Happy end of December! 2015 has gone by so fast and I'm incredibly thankful for my friends and family and their continued health.
And a BIG thanks to Heather at Stitching Lotus and her 2015 Smalls Challenge. It ensured I posted at least once a month and it's been enjoyable looking at some of the posts and projects by the talented participants.
I was busy stitching last minute Christmas cards for various friends and family.
Sorry that some of these are sideways, but I'm a little short on time and want to get this posted. The "Merry and Bright" was a design I made combining a couple of different alphabets and is for a co-worker that loves purple. "Joy" was adapted from a pattern by Gazette 94, as mentioned in a previous post. And the minions were adapted from patterns by Brooke Nolan. She has both freebies and patterns you can purchase and I'm a big fan. The card is for a co-worker that loooooooooooooooooooves minions.
I did a few non-Christmas finishes this month as well.
A card from a sale on my Etsy shop, a card for my niece from Daily Cross Stitch and dragon of fire from Dragon Dreams Needlework.
And a Christmas present for a co-worker from a Secret Santa gift exchange.
I still have a few months to finish, but these are from Happiness is Cross Stitching. I love her cats and have combined patterns from 2014 and 2015.
And that's a wrap for 2015 stitching. I look forward to continuing the smalls challenge in 2016 and want to finish some of my larger WIP's as I did not stitch much on them.
I will also participate in Debbie's Ultimate Crazy January/February Challenge 2016 (DUCJFC2016). This is a Facebook group and the premise is to start a new project every day for 31 or 60 days ( January or January and February). A few of us actually did 90 starts this year, Jan-March. I'm not sure how many of those I finished, but I know I started and finished many more when I count all the Christmas cards I did.
Celebrate your hearts out tonight, for tomorrow we stitch!
