Some Finishes

I bought a frame for this Mill Hill Bead Kit and my kids are going to put it in for me. I really like it and think it might find a home in my kitchen. This little flamingo is a gift for a friend who sat with me while my dh was in surgery. She loves flamingos and when my kids saw it we had to get it for her. It was a Mill Hill Bead kit too.

What I Have Been Doing

My dh had to have surgery and instead of 3 to 4 days in the hospital, we were there 10. Not a nice Christmas. He is fine, thank God and we are home. But I did not get much stitching done as any light bothered him. I did get some work done on my Ukrainian Nyzynka piece.
This is the front:
This is the back:
Most people just saw the back and were very impressed. I found it very relaxing to stitch. Some days I only got one row in, but it calmed and comforted me. Isn't that one reason why we stitch?

December Stitch of the Month

I finished one of my Promise of A Mystery. I ran out of Watercolours for my blue/purple one and have to wait for the thread to arrive. Hopefully it will get done soon. The beads add a nice sparkle!

I finally finished this Bead and Button Mill Hill Kit. I have a friend who has told me it would look great in her kitchen. Hmmmm. Still not sure. I need to frame it and then I can call it finished!
