It seems weird to think 2011 is almost over and that the next time I will post to this blog will be in 2012. Of course that means I have to show what I've stitched this year. If you squint hard, you'll probably be able to see all the pieces in this pic. My sidebar has a list of them if you want to know names. (I've not shown all of SDW, but just two different parts of it.)
It's been a fun year of stitching! Now I just need more funds for framing. lol!
After finishing my Noah stocking, I realized I have 3 stockings all ready and waiting to be finished. But wait, there are 4 members in my family! So of course I had to start a last CHS stocking. The only one I had kitted up was the Quaker Stocking, so that's the one I started.
I'm using 40ct Meadow Rue (one of the last pieces I had from the old days when the color was nice) along with the called for NPI. I did throw in a bit of green though. Couldn't resist.
It's obviously not done yet. I love Quakers, but I've gotten rather sick of stitching them. So this one is a bit of a struggle to get through. I did want to stitch a Quaker stocking though. The father type and I used to attend Quaker meeting once upon a time. And the girl child attended a Quaker summer camp as well. Somehow Quakers have been a part of our lives, and having a stocking to commemorate that is rather nice.
I got another wonderful surprise in the mail the other day from Faye of Carolina Stitcher. I was so surprised and touched!
It's a wallet Faye made herself. Look at the gorgeous fabric! And I love the button and the pretty zip pull charm! Thank you so much, Faye! I will use and treasure this!
Our little Mia does love to get into things. She fell in love with some packing material from a box and just had to play hide and seek in it. Can you see her?
I think she felt nice and safe inside all that stuff. lol! She's been a bit on the grumpy side since the girl child got home. I do wish she would accept the girl child and not be a little meanie.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone who celebrates Christmas had a good one. I know we did!
I wish everyone a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2012. Enjoy the last days of 2011!
