End of the month update and new treasures

It's been a while since I posted an update and people are starting to give me a hard time because while chatting with friends I keep saying I am going to post an update and still haven't yet so before someone takes a wet noodle to me I figured I better get one done.

I don't really have anything big and exciting to share, just a few small finishes.  The first one is by Prairie Schooler  and its stitched on a very fitting fabric for it.  The fabric is a 36 count from Birds of a Feather and the color is Barn owl, see I told you it was perfect for it.

This one I stitched for a friend for Christmas but its safe to post here cause she doesn't read my blog, as far as I know she doesn't even know I have a blog, LOL.  Its from the 2011 Just Cross Stitch ornament issue and the design is from Victoria Sampler.  I am still trying to find a tart tin to put it on or another type of small frame.  I am sure I will come up with something for it.

Here is one last little finish that I did.  On November 12th at The Stitchers Village,  Jennifer Aikmen-Smith from Dragon Dreams joined the site for a group chat and afterwards she posted a new freebie to her facebook page.  I couldn't resist getting to work on it right away and had it finished within a few hours.  Its called- Be thankful.

Last weekend my husband and I went to visit a friend and help her with a project.  On one of her walls she had hung a antique printing drawer and had little items that she had collected from all over the world while traveling with the military.  I commented on how neat it was and out of the blue she offered me 3 antique printing drawers and she just wanted to give away.  I was over joyed with these and cannot wait to figure out something to do with them.  I have seen people use them for all kinds of stitching projects and now I just need to decide which project I want to do.  Anyway here is what I got...  Two square drawers- each with spaces about 2x2 and 1 drawer has various size spaces.

On a side note I did manage to finish all of the Dragon Dreams Christmyth ornaments, I do not have pictures of them but it is nice to have the entire series finally done.  I will try to post pictures of them another day.

Well I am off to begin my massive project of decorating the house for Christmas- 10 large totes and various boxes of decorations.  It usually takes me a good week to get it all done.

Wendy - I told you I'd find your blog! Love lot of the things you've done, that spiderweb biscournu is awesome! I've been meaning to join the Stitch Specialists group, just haven't had a chance to fill out their application yet. Your tree turned out wonderful, I love the colors you used in it.
