12 Days of Chrsitmas in Blogland - Day Seven and the final finish for 2011 (I think!)

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me.......................

Granted, seven swans a-swimming is a beautiful sight. If you don`t believe me just check out this post on the Canterbury Cottage blog.  However, this is all I have on offer today - another 2 ornmanent kits - Holly and Santa.

I think that by now you know the routine.  Comment on this post only.  You have until 12:00am (CST)  January 7th.  Winner will be announced on Janaury 8th.  Good Luck.

I spent yesterday and today finishing up Chilly`s Gift by Stitchy Kitty.   I really enjoyed stitching this one and really love how it turned out.

I was inspired to stitch this penguin after finding out on Christmas Day that one of my nieces loves penguins. (She told me a sweet story about how her and her SO found a Penguin Nutcracker at Michaels with a missing wing and that they bought it and her SO whittled a new wing for it.)  I came home and looked for all the penquin charts I had and this one was on top of my TO DO list.

I wanted to wish you all the very best in the New Year.   Thank also for stopping by and leaving a comment when you could.  It has been enjoyable year and I am looking to the next one.

I am off now to work on my Oldest UFO - Peacock Tapestry by Teresa Wentzler.  I am also going to work on my WIPocalypse 2012 list where the Peacock Tapestry will be at the top. I am bound and determined to get this one finish in 2012. Wish me luck.

I am also going to kit up my January piece for Theme-a-licous 2012.  I won`t be naming the piece or showing any pictures as it is a chart that I am stitching for the Stitched With Love Exchanges new exchange - Love and Friendship Exchange. I have another floral piece (that is also a WIP) that I will pull it out if time permits - Castles in the Air - Papillon Creations

My Day One Start for the Crazy January Challenge 2012 will be LHN`s Home of the Needleworker (too)!

Well, I think I have babbled on enough now.  Take care and happy stitching!!!!!!!!!
