Another late post due to loads of stitching and finishing

Greetings to all my followers, welcome to new flowwers I hope not to dissapoint you.
I have been very busy stitching and finishing items I have either started or have finished, I looked in a couple of small drawers and found stuff that i stitched long ago, my goal is to finish my Up For A Challenge 15 and to do the finishing work on the loads of projects that have been stitched.
First I want to show you a couple of things I bought in a stash reduction sale at one of the retreats I go to, this is a felt and seaquin with beads Santa, I finished this last year, it was started by one of my stitching buddies, she gave up and I ended up with it, now I am not much for seaquins but this called to me to finish it, i will donate it to a lady who fell in love with it. I do need to do a little ironing to get out the wrinkles, al in all it turned out cute.


This is also a piece I bought from the stash reduction sale for a 1.00 it was only stitched a little on the coat and lower right hand corner, I lovew this piece, it will look so sweet hanging up for Christmas.
It is done on 14 count (I very rarely use 14 count) I love the colors this was from a kit.

This is one of my favorites  from Sheepish Designs Scare Crow Wabbit, I plan on doing all of the Rabbits in the series, I just need to do the finishing work this week, this is done on 32 count not the called for 36, I used DMC threads, I did not do the scissors fob, but plan on it soon.

This is from a class I went to waaaay back in the early 90s I had ro frog this little thing twice I had only put in about 20 stitches both times, I am well over half way done, this is 40 count gauze, if you want to go crazy try stitchuing on forty count gauze whew I will be glad to have this done, hopefully next week.

Well if the above silk gauze was not enough here is another I did finish, I plan on putting this inside a watch face and wearing it as a bracelet after I finish the beading, this is a  Hearts Content kit,  I also bought this at a stash reduction sale, I love this this pattern, tonight I will work on this this evening.

Just Another Button Company has some of the sweetest kits, they are a bit spendy but I just love them, the pattern calls for the stitching to be on the inside of the finished item but I like the seams it on the outside, I think it gives iy a little more of a whimsical look, I did the carrot and brown bunny last year, the fabric that was in the kit for the collar was too  small so I used a little ribbon from my stash.

In my Bunny corner she has a place,  her name is Grace, his is  Samson I love them both.

These are some ornaments I stitched last year and needed to put together just to get them out of my drawer, the Just Nan mouse ears look like bat ears, i still giggle when I see it, of course it is in the entryway with the other bunnies.

  I started to stitch this on friday evening and finished it yesterday, I am going to fram it for a small table group, I love Shepherds Bush patterns.

  Today after work ( I am working at home today) I will start working on on this Lazy Turtle Pincushion, I love this little guy.

I better get back to work stay  warm and safe on the terrible roads out there. It is snowing today with expections of 2-4 inches, we are on the downhill side of winter yahoo.
