ABC123 finish

I finally finished today. I was hoping to finish over the weekend but I just couldn't find the time. The weather was so beautiful no one wanted to stay inside. I haven't decided yet if this is going to be framed or made into a pillow. This is my last week at work & then I am going to reorganize our bedroom and redecorate the family room. It will end up in one of those rooms. I have a huge stack of LHN designs to stitch. I started Daisy Lane Cottage a month ago but then other things came up and it was pushed aside. I might pick it back up again to complete it since it is one of my favorite designs. Too many patterns not enough time to stitch them all as fast as I would like.

Little House Needleworks WIP

Here is a picture of my WIP by LHN ABC123. I am using a scrap piece of fabric some type of linen and the recommended dmc floss. I am hoping to finish this up tonight so I can start a new project tomorrow. The May sanman sal is starting on Monday. I also have a ornament to stitch for my Bent Creek yahoo group.
My job ends this next week and I have had such mixed feelings about this. I am ready for a change and some time off this summer but it is an end to a life I have known for 10 years. I have been into the office twice this last week which has made it harder. I think once I turn in the computer and the severance contract signed I will feel positive about moving forward.

LIttle House Needles WIP

This is what I am currently stitching. It is ABC 123 by Little House Needleworks.

Christmas Ornament SAL

Last weekend was the Christmas Ornament SAL. I chose a design from the 2001 JCS magazine called Christmas Ewe by Elizabeth's Designs. The fabric is something from my stash and I used DMC floss. It is finished into a hanging ornament.
