Well, we are well into the New Year and this is my first post. I have attempted to update my blog many times but unfortunately I haven't been able to upload any photos. I have figured a way around it and I am excited to share some finishes. The first is the last finish of 2012. I am so happy to have finished this WIP. It was in the stitching basket for too long.

The next is my first finish of 2013. It was for an exchange ad I stitched it up rather quickly. Once I picked it up I couldn't put it down.

Here it is all finished up as a door hanger. This was for an exchange with Carol my Stitching twin. I used Wool felt for the back, velvet ribbon and jingle bells on the bottom. Too Cute!
This is a beaded scissor fob I created for Carol. She recently purchased a red leather Namaste Scissor/Sewing Case and I wanted her to have a fob that matched. I got the hand blown glass bead in the center from a charming bead store in Montpellier Vermont and have been holding on to it for just the right project.
Lastly, the wonderful pin pillow that Carol created for me. I LOVE it!! Not only is it in my favorite color but it's perfect for my winter decor. Thank you Carol!
Well, I hope you have enjoyed visiting. I love to hear your feedback and reading your blogs inspires me to venture onto new projects. Tonight, I am going to settle into my stitching nest and watch the Patriots game with my boys. I am currently working on block 2 of Shores. It was my New Years start and I know it will be a long haul but I am happy with the progress I have made so far. I will try to post and update on the project soon. Happy Stitching!
