Projects #10, #11, and #12

Another catch up post - started two more projects and then...another cheater project...

Project #10 - Blackbird Designs - Tis the Season from the Joyeux Noel book



Project #11 - from Shakespeare's Peddler - Jenny Bean's Christmas Sampler



Project #12 - from Blackbird Designs - Flowers for Sarah Needle Case. This has been in my stash forever! Seriously, it was a class project at the Hands to Work retreat that I went to in 2006 or 2007? (Margaret, you finished yours, yes?) Okay, the basting stitches and this little leaf were all I stitched at the retreat! This project will be finished in 2011!



It's been a very, very long week and I am so grateful that tomorrow is Friday. It's going to be a very cold weekend here in Minnesota, and fortunately, we don't have many plans. I hope to get my laundry caught up, my house cleaned, and spend some quality time with my stitching! Thanks for stopping by!

Those are great choices in projects! The Joyeaux Noel book has such great charts in it.

I love these projects! You are much braver than I and are stitching some larger ones. And the BBD doesn't look like a cheater to me-it works great! Plus I have never seen this one before, so I am anxious to see your finish!

I stitched the flowers for Sarah needlecase last year and it's great!!! Such a joy to stitch it and the endresult was stunning. Too bad I stitched for someone else...

All great projects! The only one I haven't done is the BBD Noell piece! Of course, I was too chicken to do the needleroll so just did it as a sampler. Major cheater!
