My First Two Finishes for 2009



I finally have two finishes for 2009. The snowman is for a SAL I am doing on the OakHavenDesigns group for January. It is stitched on a 6" square of yellow 14 count aida cloth. I am not sure what I am going with them but I will decide once I complete all of them. There is a different design for each month. I have a shelf in my family room that I am thinking about turning into a monthly or seasonal shelf (thanks for the idea Rene).

The pink ribbon blackwork heart is for Donna at Stitching for a Cure http://www.stitchingforacure.blogspot.com. I really like this design. I have made one in purple also. I am hoping to do 2 ornaments a month for her project so I got to get busy and do another one.

I can't believe how fast this month has gone. Wasn't it just New Year's Eve?

Today we had snow and freezing rain and then more snow. All the schools in our area were closed. I stayed at home today due to the freezing rain so I was able to do some stitching and I did some organizing of some of my floss. I still have more organizing of my floss to do but I got a great start on it today.

Time to go back to stitching.
