Update on Santa's Village and Frosty Forest

 Frosty Forest's Raccoon Cabin by Country Cottage Needleworks.  Next one up is Snowy Deer...another cute installment of this design.
Santa's Village by Country Cottage Needlworks. House 1-7 finished... those snowflakes are gonna drive me to drink. :-)  Just kidding!   Ready to move on to house #8.  Maybe this weekend!

Still working on Halloween Luck by Glendon kinda got pushed to the back since I wanted to work more on the above two designs.
Also couldn't resist starting Glendon Place's Snowmen Ala Round--adorable and love working on it. 

Father Christmas by Joan Elliott is a slow work in progress...stitching it on a dark blue and have to have the perfect light to work on it. 

It has been pretty nice in Kansas...we have been having some 55-60 degrees days lately alternating with 20-25 degree days and wind chills in the negatives. No snow or any precipitation which we really need.  It is so dry in our area!!  I am so ready for Spring and the gentle rains hopefully it will bring.   

Until next time...Stay safe and keep on stitching!!

What I have been up to:

I am not to good at this whole blogging seems to get in the way.  Busy times at work and home.  But still finding time  to stitch!!

 Father Christmas by Joan Elliott stitched on Steph's Fabbys "Midnight Tryst"  

 I just love this design...the little bird and the silver Krenik about drove me crazy though. LOL

Lots of beads and backstitching in the future!

 Halloween Luck by Glendon Place stitched on PTP "Eek"

This is such an awesome and fun design to stitch.  No fractional's and those pumpkins at too cute!

I want to keep stitching on this one, really want it done for next year. 

Santa's Village by Country Cottage Needleworks

This design is just adorable and just keeps getting cuter with every house.  Wish  I was a faster stitcher, but in will be finished too!

It's perfect weather here in Kansas for staying indoors and stitching....Cold and windy!!  High for today is only supposed to be 27 degrees.

Have a great day everyone!

Sharing some of my finishes

 State Fair by Little House Needleworks-- I just 
 love our local County Fair which is held in July.  I love seeing all the 4-H'ers exhibit their projects and checking out what the Open Class exhibiters have been working on.  Great place to get new and creative ideas.


Black Stallion by Kustom Krafts--stitched in memory of my late Father-in-law...he loved horses and anything Western.

Quaker Christmas by Bygone Stitches...I loved stitching this design.

My Stitching buddy...Ollie

Ollie is an 8 year old shelter rescue cat.  He had been at our local shelter for quite awhile..still haven't figured out why no one wanted him!  He is such a sweetie!!  He picked son picked him up and Ollie wrapped his paws around his neck and started purring.  A  purrfect match!!

Joining the blogging world after reading and following fellow bloggers for years, I finally took the step to start my own blog!!  Thanks to all for the encouragement.  Just a couple of projects that I am working on now.

Santa's Villge by Country Cottage Needleworks
