Wips, progress and finishes

Hello All, I hope that this finds everyone doing well and stitching. :)

This post will be picture heavy as I am going to try and show a few wips and the progress as well as a couple of finishes and  2 new starts.
 #1 WIP - Stocking #1 Winter Wildlife Christmas. I was making good progress and hoped to finish as least #2 of 5 animals, There's not many color changes in this one and went to get the 1 color (DMC 435) I needed and discovered that the said color has went MIA , the whole snack bag full has disappeared ( I still have no idea where it is). I was working on this last Thursday in my rotation and it all come to a screeching halt when I couldn't find the color. I look for over an hour and it is still MIA so had to wait until after work on Friday to buy more. I got aggravated and settled myself by having a new start.
Stocking #1                        Winter Wildlife Christmas
The new start this past week is Little House Needleworks - Hometown Holiday - Needlework Shop. I got my pattern and fabric from 123Stitch my go to online shop. You can find the pattern @ Needlework-Shop-Cross-Stitch-Pattern
 Fabric is there also and is 30 count Portobello Linen. I will also be stitching the Coffee Shop in the series as well on the same fabric using DMC threads.

I used my own Hand-Dyed Aida Denim color 14 count with a mix of DMC Threads and Iris Threads and one of my own hand-dyed thread.

Next up is another new start by Cottage Garden Samplings called Peace on Earth. There's also a SAL group on Facebook for this one as well. There are 2 colorways(it shows both) you can stitch this on per the pattern. I've chosen my own hand dyed fabric. 18 count aida dyed pearl grey.
