Finish # 29 Snow Kisses by VeeandCo Cross Stitch
Fabric is 28ct Navy Evenweave Threads DMC
Started for DUCJC Jan 11th, 2016
Took 6 Days
This was one of my 2016 DUCJC starts and I really wanted to finish it up. So happy to mark it off my list. Pretty sure this makes 14 of the 31 starts now. Not as good as I wanted of course but I'll take it. As always I've added many projects throughout the year so that doesn't help. Like this next project...
ordering some things forced to purchase some new stash. I had bought a 2016 PALs Exclusive pattern and wanted was forced into buying the threads for it. Haha. Anyway enough excuses I also spotted a piece that I wanted to do for my mom sometime. It's hard to stitch a surprise for my mom since we own a house together. Yesterday she happened to leave the house and be gone for several hours so I hurried and started the new piece. I was able to finish it last night quickly after she had went to bed. So I will be able to give it to her for Christmas now. I'm so glad! Anyway here is the finished piece...
Finish # 30 Grandma Stitch Wit Kit by Dimensions
Used kit materials. My first embroidery piece.
Finished with included hoop.
Took 1 Day. Finished December 14th, 2016
I didn't notice until I received it that it was embroidery instead of cross stitch. It was really easy but I have to admit I didn't enjoy it as much as cross stitching. So I'll have to watch more careful next time I'm forced to go shopping haha.
Now I have two finishes. In my mind that's always a good reason to start a new piece. Plus I did receive those beautiful new specialty threads so it only makes sense I make sure they work and go into the fabric correctly haha. Yes I have a long list of things I have to work on and plus my I should be working on Grandpa's piece. Let me show you the beautiful new pattern I want to start though...
This is a 2016 PALs Exclusive from Silver Creek Samplers called Taking it e-Sea but I think I heard she is going to release it next year sometime for everyone else. It uses beautiful Gentle Art and Weeks Dye threads. So hopefully now you understand why I must start it. Tomorrow Fred (hubby) has the day off work so Mom and me are going shopping. Saturday I'll be busy most the day wrapping presents so I'm making today a lazy day. I deserve it. We are in for some interesting weather this weekend. Right now we have 7 inches of snow on the ground and below zero temps. We are supposed to get rain/snow/ice from tomorrow afternoon till Saturday night. Who knows what will happen. Hope everyone has a great weekend! See ya Monday.
