A finish or two

I have an out of season finish and an in season finish.  The first one I finished in November but didn't have time to iron, pic and post it so I decided to share it anyway.  It is the bonus charts offered in the LK Mystery Sampler from this past fall.  I decided to stitch all of them in a row.  I used WDW kohl on 36ct Sudden Storm linen.  I love this linen and haven't been able to track any more down.  It is perfect for Halloween stitching with it's purpley gray hue.
 
The next is the December 2012 Year of smalls selection.  I used 32 ct Light Mocha with a red DMC varigated thead I think 715 but now 100 % sure.  I need to finish it off in send it packing.  It's for a good friend.  I hope she will like it.

Tonight is the last night of Hanukkah.  I have had a lovely week with my family and will share some special pics of our holiday with you tomorrow.  I hope you are all enjoying every minute of your holiday preparations and remember that all you need are friends and family close in order to have a good time.  My heart is heavy with sadness because of the Connecticut school shooting that happened yesterday.  Hug your family extra hard and be thankful you are all together as we never know what tomorrow can bring.

Congratulations on your finishes. The Sudden Storm linen and Kohl thread is a stunning combo.
