A couple finishes before the year is up

Happy Thursday afternoon

I have a couple close finishes I'm going to try to get done this year, so look for one more post

I recently finished this...




Photobooth Snowmen by Bent Creek, stitched on 32ct linen with WDW and GA threads
The third photo is my favorite, the snowman with the carrots on his head with the other snowman with his hand over his mouth giggling. If you would like to stitch this, comment letting me know you are interested in the pattern and I'll drop your name in the hat.

Another recent finish is this years retreat piece from Jan at Tree of Life Samplings



Needle's Guide stitched on 40ct peanut shell linen with GA threads

Here is a snap of Christmas Garden, I don't think it will get done until next year about this time, lol



It will go in the basket for awhile, until I get some WIP's done, then I will pick it back up.

I will leave you with a photo that I took the other night of our tree




Oh!!!!! I found a photo of the kids and the grandkids taken at Heather's on Thanksgiving
Sean, kellie, Dusty, standing
Brayden, Heather, Brianna, Chelsea and Dalton, sitting



My very own is Kellie (16) Dustin (27) and Heather (25)




I'm oh so proud of them all

If I want some more finishes this year, I better quit bragging and start stitching, lol, not many hours left
