My very late late december ISHW post and other things

Hello to all my followers, welcome to my new followers I hope all is well with you all and you are satying warm, I am trying so hard to keep a positive mind about this stinky weather.
I do have a late ISHW post, I have no excuse for it other then the holidays did keep me busy.
I finished a Drawn Thread stitch.

This is the Spot of Autumn pattern, this is done on I think 28 count linen, unsure of the type of linen, the finish stitching area is 31/2 by 31/2, I plan on putting this on a small box to hold my orts, this is from the four seasons series.




This is my sewing/craft room I love this room, I have not been good to this place, I have neglected it so much this past two months, I had so much i needed to gey done and never cleaned it after the mass destruction of crafting for  the holidays, I hope to have this mess straightened up soon very soon.

 Now do you think I could have at least put the iron away, nope just lazy old me trying to get to much done in a short period of time, I made my deadlines but left an aftermath that is not pretty, wish me luck.



This is a pattern I started way back in january 2009, it is from the Just Cross Stitch magazine, I was off by one stitch and just wanted to cry, I put it in my Up For A Challenge 2014  I found the stitch and it was an easy fix. I chose a 36 count Edin. White Opal I love the sparkle it has this is a very easy fabric to work with, I used my own choice of threads a mix of DMC, I think the colors are a little light.
I hope to have this done before this week-end.



This is a project I am giving to a very special Lady I call the Quilt Lady, I will finish framing this tomorrow and drop in the mail on saturday, I think she knows who she is, she is also into minatures.
I do hope she likes it.

 

I am going to show you my Up For A Challenge 15, I hope to have at least 13 of them finished this year. Some are things that are kitted up and others I have started, I am also including pictures of some of the things I need to do the finishing on, loads of work here.




























I wish you all good health and loads of stitching.
