Here are the pictures of my Christmas exchange from Fair and Square. My partner was Clare and she stitched this wonderful Santa.

This is my completed Country Cottage Needleworks - Peppermint Lane. I really enjoyed stitching this. I had some fabric I will have to look and see what the brand is but I bought it in a big piece when my LNS went out of business. It is a pink shade with marble effects. I really like it with this design.

The pictures are not the best. I really need a new camera. I used my mom's but she hasn't emailed them to me yet. I might load her pictures if they turned out better. I have a fussy little 4 year old so I am going to have to stop blogging and see to him. He went to the doctor today and has an ear infection. I wanted to make changes to my blog but I guess I am going to have to do that later.

I have completed 3 projects in the last 2 days! Yeah. I have had time off from work for the holiday's and it has really paid off. I completed Country Cottage Needleworks Peppermint Lane, Plum Puddings freebie Fa La La, & Little House Needleworks Blessed are the Pure in Heart. I will post picture tomorrow since I ran out of time tonight.

I need to throw something in the bag to take to work with me so I can stitch on my breaks and lunch. I want to stitch SanManOriginals "Darn kids" which is a very cute snowman. I have a couple of small stitches that I hope to complete a freebie from Lizzie Kate "Let it Snow" & "Favorite time of year". I have a pile of options mostly snowman related and a few Valentine stitches to complete and have ready to decorate for Valentines Day.

I have been looking at blogs today and reading the 123stitch message board. It always motivates me to stitch when I see what others are stitching on. I hope everyone had a great day.

Has it been that long?

Where does time go? I just can't belive my last post was September. I started working over time at work and this is the first week I didn't have to do that. I have been stitching but not as much as I wanted to. I stitched my Thanksgiving & Christmas exchanges and sent them off. I will post pictures of them as soon as I upload them. I am currently stitching Country Cottage Needleworks Peppermint Lane I will take a work in progress photo of that. I had some really pretty fabric that I picked up at my LNS when it went out of business and it goes very well with the colors. I am also just finishing up Plum Puddings new freebie. I love snowmen. It is very cute. I will try to post the link but it is on their website. I am also working on a couple of crocheted scarves for Christmas presents. One I need to finish today or tomorrow. There is nothing like last minute gifts. I made a fat quarter tote and I am going to put the scarf inside. Okay I don't want this to be too wordy but I am going to make an effort of posting each day. I hope everyone is well. I have so missed posted but have been keeping up with reading others blogs. It is very inspiring.
