A New Year, 2 new finishes & a new baby!



Happy New Year! We spent New Year's Day in the car. We went to visit our son & DIL in their new home. We had a wonderful time, visiting them in their home.
In case some of you haven't heard, they informed us at Christmas that we are going to be grandparents at the end of July/beginning of August!
I worked on & finished 2 small projects while in the car. The first is the second ornament from the Plum Pudding Needlearts packet. This one is Joy. I did it on the opal aida again. I love the look!
The other finish is Heartfelt Harvey by Imaginating. It is from the 2008 JCS ornament issue. I used Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe's "Christmas Red" for this project. It is stitched on white opal aida. LOVE IT!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by & I will catch up on reading blogs in the next couple days. Amazing how far behind a person can get in a couple days away!!!!
