Small finishes and a new WIP

It seems like forever since I posted.  Life has been non spot these days with school getting ready to end and getting the yard ready for Summer.  I have managed to get a little stitching done but it seems to be going slow these days.  This first one is another of the Sam Sarah series and its called The Front Gate.  I changed the color of the gate to a light brown because the white on white was not going to show up.  Now I just need to get them finished into ornaments.

I just had to stitch this little guy since Erik made him for me.  He was lots of fun to stitch and I just love the colors on him, I hope to make him into a ornament or small wall hanging. 

A few weeks ago I fell in love with a tree that my friend Sue is stitching and just had to join the Yahoo group and get in the on the SAL.  I am really enjoying this project and I love seeing all the different colors people are using on it.  The SAL is on a yahoo group called The Stitch Specialist and the project is called The Tree of Stitches.  Right now we are up to part 8 but I have only got up to part 7 done.  Each part is a different type of specialty stitch.  I am stitching it on a fabric called Winter Winds and I am using an old Needle Necessities floss called Serengeti for the trunk and Carons Waterlilies Silk 088- Mountain Meadow for the rest.  I still need to figure out a bead to go on it as well.

My plans for the week are to work on old WIPs and also try to get some finishing time in so I can get the ornaments made and a few projects framed.

Your tree is beautiful! So summery and it looks like you could have a picnic underneath it. :)
