I'm Baaaaaaaaaaaacccccccccccck!

As least I hope this won't be a false start and that I will continue to post on a more regular basis. I don't really know why I stopped, probably just a combination of "life" and laziness.

I wish you all the best of the season and I hope you are all doing well and that it continues to be so in the New Year.

I going to start with some of my finishes since my last post, way back when. Most of these have been completed within the last month. I didn't stitch much over the summer (another reason for not posting - nothing to show.)

 I started the following back in January as part of the DUCJC 2015 (Debbie's Ultimate Crazy January Challenge 2015). I kind of stop working on it as the summer approached but at the beginning of November I took it with me to a craft camp which inspired me to finish which I did November 29, 2015. It is "99" by Ink Circles. I stitched it on the suggested fabric 32ct Ale from Picture This Plus. with DMC cotton.

One finish I did manage back in June is Tribal Maple Leaf © White Willow Stitching.

I stitched it with CC Fallen Leaves.

Some more recent finishes are 3 Christmas ornaments -  Snow Love & Christmas Cheer © Country Cottage Needleworks and Hallelujah © Little House Needleworks.

My final finish is one of the 2 charts in Harvest Hunt "Britty Kitties" © Brittercup Designs - Kitty on Pumpkin.  (I hoping to have the other one - Kitty with Ghosts - finished before hitting the sack tonight.)

Well, that is it for now.  I will be back soon with some WIP pics, some challenges for next year and hopefully some more finishes.

Take care and happy stitching!!!!

Thank you for visting!!!!
