a Finish and a Start

My final cross stitch finish for the year ... "Hope for the Holidays" from the JCS 2013 ornament issue.  I finished it just in time to have it grace the tree.

I also have 2 new starts. The first is "Nature's Alphabet" which was a gift to me for Christmas.
My first bit of stitching:
Funny thing ... I selected the kit because I really liked the design. I didn't see any info about the designer until I opened it Christmas morning. Wouldn't you know it, it is another design by Sandy Orton!

My other new start is a rug hooking kit that I picked up to make as a gift for someone special. 

It is called "Lighthouse" and the finished design measures 16" x 32".  I hope to finish it before the end of next Summer, so I do have plenty of time.

Things have slowed down a bit for me, so I hope to make more progress on my WIPs this coming month.

Happy Stitching!


  1. Super ornament, very bright and colourful.

  3. Cute ornament finish. I like your new start.

  4. Lovely little finish! I like the cheerful colours. And your new alphabet start looks great, looking forward to seeing more. :)
