Some WIP's plus a small finish

First up are some of my WIP's



A Quaker Christmas, still not thrilled with it, but I did get a few stitches in.





A ornie from Prairie Schooler " Prairie Lodge"
I Love woodpecker's






"Emerald Mermaid" by Mirabilia


Here's the before photo of Monopoly Gameboard, when I first pulled it out in January after many, many years.



I have been stitching here and there and this is the results.


I have stitched and restitched the face on the jailer. He must have gotten too beat up in jail, because he always comes out looking deformed, So he's no face for right now, lol

Here's a little freebie that only took a few hours. I am not sure what's it's called. I noticed it sure has the same body style as the Goode Huswife "Primitive Bird" maybe a little different, I dont have the chart to compare. The freebie can be found Here

I didn't follow the exact motifs, I made some up. I didn't care for the poinsettia leaves.

Photo taken in my back yard, I can see a tree full of these little birdies.

I am planning on stitching BBD "Greeting's" tonite and I will see what other WIP's need my attention for update photo's.

That's it for now.

Please take care and Thanks so much for visiting :)

What a pile of fun pieces you have going on. Nice of your kitty to keep your stitching warm.

Love what you did with the little bird. I wanted to stitch that up, but I didn't care for the leaves either. You had some good ideas there. I need to think outside the birdhouse!
