A Few Finishes!


I didn't think I was going to make it but on the last day of the month I managed to finish "It;s Snow Cold" by LHN for my January Ornament SAL. Being a Snowman addict I just love this cute design.


The theme on the SAL for February is Candy Canes or Reindeer. I chose this little guy from the JCS 2012 Ornament magazine. It's designed by Cathy Jean at The Victoria Sampler.




This teeny tiny pumpkin finish was my January Halloween Ornament. Februarys theme was a Black Cat. I took this little guy from part of a freebie design at the Silvercuteddwarf blogspot.



My eyes were too tired to stitch last night so I decided to try crocheting some squares. Last time I tried these was well over 30 years ago. Just like my stitching there not perfect but they'll do ..lol.

I hope everyone is having a good week with lots of stitchy and crafty time.

Cute snowman. They are all cute.
I haven't crochet in about as long as you have. I wonder if I still could.

Your finishes are so cute. I love them, but especially how your finished off the reindeer piece. It looks like it's in a little tin and is just adorable.

So happy to have you back in blogland :)

Love your stitchings and choices for the SALs, the little reindeer is especially lovely! And the crochet... so beautiful colours, I have also started a crochet project last night, with somewhat similar colours :)

Brigitte said...

Oh, your LHN pillow looks gorgeous. And your other finishes, too. You are doing great with the Halloween and the Christmas ornament SALs. I've tried such a thing several times and each time I failed. So that doesn't seem to be for me, lol.
