Final page finish of 2013

For some reason, my camera is not being very cooperative and is making my pictures look a little odd.  Anyway, I just finished page 16 of Lust.  She's now abou 45% complete.

Instead of starting the next page, I decided to pull out a Christmas tree skirt that I started in 2007 and push it along a little further.  It's a kit from Dimensions called Here Comes Santa.  I think it needs some love before my kids are too old to enjoy it.

Here's where it is right now.

It's stitched on 11ct Aida with three strands in many places which are a couple of the reasons it hasn't seen the light of day for a while.

Almost forgot!

I finished the stitching on my ornaments Sunday night.  Here are ornaments 2 and 3

Monday, night I added the back and some ribbon to hang them.  I think they turned out pretty well for my first attempt.

Here's my progress with Lust as of Monday night too.

Rose Garden update

Thank you for the kind comments about Cinnamon.  They're very much appreciated.

At my last stitching update, I showed you my new start, Rose Garden Mandala.  Stitching has been really slow between Thanksgiving and all the travel, but as of 12/1, here was my progress.

Yesterday, it looked like this

I've put it up for a bit while I work on some Christmas ornaments for a gift exhange at work.  I've finished the front of one of them.

I've got at least two more to go for work.  Then, I"m thinking of one or two for my tree and one for my sitter.  We'll see how ambitious I still am when the first three are done.
