FAL pics and a WIP

I did get to stitch a little last week and I work on Twas The Night Before Christmas by Little Old Me Designs. I have this in my rotation for Thursdays.


I finished 18 projects. Can you believe it? 2 I can't show as they are for exchanges. I also didn't start til early evening Saturday and finished around 6:30 tonight. Yes I did sleep last night and went to bed around 11:00. Some of these pieces I stitched in 2000 so it was good to see them and since some say Winter, snow or have snowmen on them they will stay out til Spring. Some will get put away for Christmas gifts this year. I know a family member who will love the one little pillow that has a bird on it. The canvas bag was from a stitching retreat that i went on in 2006 and we did a SAL of the porcupine and I fused that to the bag. Now I can't wait til next month's FAL. The only thing I hate is not having a craft room so I have to put everything away and then pull it all back out again next time. I am so glad that I have a huge family room that I can set up a TV tray, 6 ft table and a card table and still have room to walk around in here. So who wants to join me next month? The dates for all of this years FALs are in the sidebar.

WOW Shelleen!!! You did an amazing job! I am very impressed with all that you got done. I don't even have that many stitched and not finished. Of course, that is because I am the world's slowest stitcher - LOL!
