A big catch up!

I've been very slow in my stitching. I'm so sorry. I am a bookkeeper and needless to say the last few months have been very busy preparing for tax season. While I don't prepare the actual end of year taxes myself, I do a ton of data entry and account verifications for my boss, so no rest for the weary. :-) As soon as tax week was over I had company fly in that weekend. They just left this morning. While she was here I was able to do quite a bit of stitching while watching movies and playing board games. So, I am finally up to date on my SAL!!!

Here are my results:


Title: Noel Heart freebie by Passione Ricamo (my take on the pattern)
Stitched on: 28 ct. ivory evenweave
Threads used: DMC & Green Leaves Light by Thread Gatherer Silk 'n Colors
Beads used: Mill Hill Antique Glass Beads Rich Red (03059) and Petite Glass Beads Gold (40557)


Title: Poinsettia Basket by Brightneedle (from Small Samplings booklet)
Stitched on: 28 ct. ivory linen
Threads used: DMC, Sable by Caron Collection Wildflowers, and In the Reds by Thread Gatherer Silk 'n Colors
Beads used: Mill Hill Frosted Glass Beads Buttercup (62041)


Title: Snow Bunny by Hob Nobb
Stitched on: 16 ct. Stardust Heatherfield

Please forgive my lack of ironing on my pieces! :-)
I also started a second set for my nephew's wedding for next year. I have January and February finished. I am almost finished with March as well. Will post pictures for that soon.
