Christmas Through the Year

Finished 2 projects to use as gifts next year.
My Blackbird designs mini X-stitch ornament and
another Primitive Gatherings Wool Stocking.
I think these will be great with a candy cane and twig to go on the top of packages.
A big thanks to Darlene and Cheryl for keeping us motivated.

I have a good start on my Feb. ornament as well.
It will be hard to stay on track with these goals when I am so obsessed with these:
the nursery and 
the patriot's home.

However, true to my promise, finishing up my 1880 Sampler is my primary February goal.
Cross your fingers I can accomplish it.
And BTW, I did finish all the applique on my Easter table runner!
Quilting it is on the list for Feb.

You are doing great with your goals, I'd say! I have yet to get my Christmas Through the Year project done for this month! And I'm a real slacker with the houses. I sure hope to get at some of these this week though!! Keeping fingers crossed.

Love the stockings! Cute penguin. The windows in your houses are great, I only have 4 houses made so far and my windows are rather plain. You have a great start on your gifts.

The angel stocking is my style. The tree stocking looks very elegant. I did not participate in the Christmas gift sew-along during January but hope to later in the year.

Your little stockings are adorable as is your penguin ornament to be! Your houses are so cute with the fussy cut windows :)

Cheryll said...

Great finishes for Xmas. It's nice being organised this early isn't it! :)

Taryn said...

You should be proud of your accomplishments! I am very obsessed with the little houses. They are very fun to plan and stitch. That wool stocking is my favorite. If you stick with the plan you are going to be one very satisfied gifter next Christmas.

The stockings look great, the two different styles really contrast but each has it's own appeal. You sure are smitten with those houses. Nursery eh? How is the mother to be?
