Feburary Update 2-12-2019

Hello all, I hope that everyone is doing well. The ones that are dealing with all the snow and below freezing temps, floods out west ,you are all in my thoughts and prayers  always. I hope that you are staying safe and warm and dry.

 Just a few updates for the start of Feb.

*Week 1 Stocking #1 Winter Wildlife Christmas. I have finished animal #3 of 5. " Gentle Ben"the big black bear has made a complete appearance and the 4th is starting to make an appearance right in front of him. Not named yet animal #4 already has 8 different shades of brown in him.

*Week 2 Stocking #2 Celtic Christmas. I've completed all the bands but the last one and this one is heavy on the quarter stitches. I'm working this on 18 ct. Aida and it's a bit stiff so I am using a sharp needle to pierce the center of the squares before stitching the quarter stitches, a little slow moving on the last band and there's a motif I will be stitching on the heel of the stocking.

*Week 3 Next week starting Sunday2-17-2019 , I will bring out Stocking #3 Christmas Eve, Looking at a finish on that one hopefully as I am in the last room.

* Week 4 Vintage Merry Christmas. Since my last post I have completed page 2 of 4 and started on page 3.   StitchX Cross Stitch Designs - Etsy Shop
The Holly leaves were pretty easy to stitch and the rest is easy to stitch as well.

 That's all for the rotation pieces
I have also a small finish- one of my on-the-go projects. Stitched on 14 ct. White Aida using DMC threads. This one is Snow Bird by Lizzie Kate.

I have also found some nice little freebie mini stockings from Tokens and Trifles
This link  is for all the shapes and patterns they have , some are I have found not working but most were - Tokens and Trifles- All patterns
Unfortunately the company closed in 2015 and these patterns were for the sewing cards they made.
I don't have the sewing cards but you can stitch them on just about anything so I am using a 7 Mesh plastic canvas and yarn to do one called Quaker Stocking, this one will be a wall hanging as it will be quite large. The others I have found I am planning on stitching them on Aida and Evenweave and possibly perforated paper and some 10Mesh plastic canvas.
 I also started one on 18 ct. Charles Craft Oatmeal Aida -  Kreinik -Mini Stocking -  Mini Stocking - Kreinik.
Both have a few cute little freebies you can stitch up

Thank you for stopping by and visiting for a little while... Until Next Time...........
Happy Stitching and May you have smokin'
