I spent a good portion of the day working on this Betsy Morgan class piece. It's called Gathering for Winter. I finished all the acorns on the main piece. (Please excuse my wrinkles!)
Lots of specialty stitches in those acorns! The needlebook and the scissor fob pieces are also stitched. I still need to stitch the scissor sheath and the bottom. The top is started but not finished. Won't take too much longer to finish stitching. Pretty soon I will need a finishing day.
It has been my tradition for years now to start a new piece on New Year's Day.
