11.30.2016 additional comment

I forgot to thanks Heather, at Stitching Lotus for sponsoring the Smalls SAL.  It always exciting to see what everyone else has posted and to get inspired by their creativity.


November Smalls SAL


Boy is the year speeding by, with Christmas less than a month away.  I was able to finish a few things this month.  Patterns from a variety of designers, so please let me know if you are interested in any.








I'm at 223 finishes out of 335 starts for the year on my crazy Facebook challenge.  I have a few more projects for Christmas cards yet to finish and still need another month's worth of starts. I've enjoyed this challenge, but will resume the original challenge next year, which is a start a day for January and February.  I'd like to spend time finishing or at least working on some of my larger projects.

Speaking of Christmas cards, here are some pictures of the finished cards themselves, and not just the finished stitching.




And here's the finished wine charms I had stitched earlier in the year.  I sealed them with Modge Podge to keep the back threads from fraying and to add a little protection in case of spills.
Happy stitching,

More October finishes

As I discussed in my last post, I was able to finish a few more projects for October.  These are all from the same Bucilla kit, 30 Mini Ornaments and will be turned into Christmas cards.  These bring my total for the year to 306 starts and 206 finishes.




While I've enjoyed the challenge of a "start a day for a year", and yes, I know I still have 2 more months to go, I will not do this next year.  Assuming this crazy Facebook challenge continues, I'll stick with the original premise of "a start a day for 2 months" and then spend some time on my bigger projects. I know I will have more than 60 starts by the end of 2017, but I won't plan for more than 60.

Happy November!
