Two latest finishes

Wow. Just... WOW. I have two more finishes for this month, totaling 17 for the year. That is well over my one a month goal, so I feel pretty good about that. Next year I am wanting to finish up one UFO per month. I really do need to get this mess either stitched up or traded off with someone. I feel bad about the amount of stuff I have let pile up. :/

On December 17, I begin my two week break from school. I am hoping to get some stitching time in. Hopefully, this will mean four new ornaments, but I am not going to push myself. I am still dealing with the horrible grief of losing the baby and Christmas is going to be rough, if not flat out sucking. I miss my son every day and Christmas will be particularly brutal. :(

Well, here are the finishes with the related Stitchy Notes. :)

Finish Number 1:

Design: Winter Bookmark- Hiver bien au chaud entre les pages

Designer: Pastel 49

Fabric: 28 count natural linen

Fibers: Soie d'Alger 1846 (Forest Green) and 4145 (Chocolate Brown). DMC in B5200.

Began and Completed Stitching: Thursday, December 7, 2009

Finish Number 2:

Design: Winter Greens

Designer: Diane Williams of Little House Needleworks All Dolled Up series (2009)

Accouterments: Mill Hill beads in #62031 (Frosted Old Gold).

Approximate DMC colors for the Soie d'Alger would be Ecru, 310, 321, 367, 890, and 898. Please note that these are *my* conversions and YMMV. :).


Had clinic today and managed to get three credit hours toward my 30 hours total I need of working with the public. I am dog tired, but I am going to pull some fabric and threads for my next start and hopefully start it. :P

Hope everyone is having a good week so far! :D
