Which one??

I wish everyone a very Happy and prosperous New Year 2015!!

I went shopping.... And decided to buy The Red Deer Sampler by Gigi R
I've been eyeing it for awhile now.

The linen is 36ct Confederate Grey

The fibers below are for the Samplers 4 Saisons

Each color is for a season and the brown for the tree. The linen is 40ct Flax

So now I have to decide which one to start tomorrow,

You say...

Both of them

I say "O.K."

I'm not sure how much I will get to stitch on them, we are going out of town with the kids to a Wisconsin Dells indoor waterpark hotel.

Be safe

Let's talk New Years Day

Sooooo I'd love to hear what everyone has kitted up or wants to kit up to stitch for the New Year

Photos are taken from the internet

This is what I'm thinking of starting....

Anagram Diffusion "Sampler 4 Saisons"

I love the red but....
I plan on stitching the different seasons in different soft colors

I downloaded the pattern from www. I believe it cost 6.50 in US dollars

11 page pattern, the stitch count is 320X320. I have to shop for the 40ct linen and the 4 thread colors. I need to go to a shop to do a floss toss, before the 1st

When I first saw this pattern of course I googled and also fell in love with two designs also from Anagram Diffusion


"Ying Yang"

Has anyone ever stitched these designs or any others?

What is going to be your New Year Start?

Please don't hold me to this design, lol, I have a right to change my mine

I'm thinking, I better go get busy stitching what I have in my bag, lol

Tata for now

Nordic Yuletide


I finished one of the Nordic Yuletide ornament

By Summer House Stitche Works

I'm stitching all the ornaments on 28ct Natural linen with silver from Fabric Flair with the champagne ice mill hill beads. I'm using the same linen for the back.

Here's an actual better picture of it and also my start on another one

I love everything about these and won't stop until I stitched them all.
There are 7 designs in the chart and two more in the 2014 JCS ornament and JCS preview issues.

Take care and be safe this holiday season

Have a great weekend!

Christmas Garden

Happy holidays!!

I finished Christmas Garden, yay for me,

Blackbird Designs, stitched on 40ct. w/GAST threads
As you can see I stitched the alphabet instead of Christmas Garden. I most likely will leave it on the wall all year.

And here are a few WIP's I've been stitching on

Baby, Its Cold Outside

Turkey Troy

Nordic Yuletide, ornaments, set of 7 or 8

That's all for now...
I did finish Christmas Angels by Birds of a Feather, I will get that photo up, when I get home. I'm visiting my mom in the nursing home and taking her for lunch in the cafe.

Have a warm, safe and joyous holiday season from my family to yours
