The Kitty is Stitched

I have had lots of stitching time but no desire to work on the Heirloom Sampler.  This has been so much fun to stitch. Thank goodness I have several more Mill Hill Santas in my stash....
I may even have another one of these in my stash.

Ready to Fill

I was able to cut the threads for my hardanger section but I am still a little too stressed to do the filling sections. Maybe after this weekend.

A Finish!

It was so much fun to get this finished!  Now do I start a new project or wait until I start the Crazy January Challenge on January 1st?

Close to a Finish

I am so close to finishing this piece.  Lots of people ask what I will do with it when I am done.  Put stitching stuff inside it, of course!

Red, White and Blue Crazy Quilt

I joined a crazy quilt round robin.  Here are some pictures of the block I worked on this month.

I wanted to do more, but refrained.

Not Much Stitching Going On Here....

Wow, it has been along time since I was able to post.  I have been busy making Christmas goodies as gifts for family and friends.  Not much time or energy for stitching, but I do have a little progress to show.
I work a little each night and it makes me feel better.  Hopefully I will be able to dig out my Heirloom Stitching Sampler next week and make some progress on it.  Although I did get a new Janet Zickler Casey Santa in last week...Temptations abound!

Playing with Fabric and Stencils

I really don't have time to play with Christmas baking, gift wrapping and shopping going on, but I could not help myself.  I dyed some fabric and then played with some stencils.  Now I just need to heat set them and start playing!

New Mill Hill Bead Project

Sorry these are such bad photos, but I wanted to post my new project.  I had sorted the threads a few months ago but never started stitching it.  I have a bunch of these to do so I am thinking about doing a Crazy January Challenge.  Will let you know if I do.
