Monday Morning!



Good morning! I have yet another finish! But...in all fairness...this one too less than 2 hours to stitch!! It is so tiny. I stitched it over 1 on 25 ct. opal. lugana. I used a Needle Necessities floss for it.
I had the finishing frame in my stash! I received it as a gift in a 12 days exchange at Christmas. It was perfect for this!
I also 'finished' my goat yesterday. I thought this was perfect for him!!!
I have painted a frame this am, for my reindeer, so he will be totally finished soon too. Now, IF I could just get motivated to finish some of my WIP pieces, instead of starting new things.
Someone, who lives in my house, but will remain unnamed, hinted the other day about Christmas Village. Suppose I should get it out & work on it??
I am also attaching a picture of the boys. It has been a while! This was taken at Christmas time, but it seems appropriate now! They are helping their daddy & grandpa root for the Vikings!! Grandpa has been a Viking fan for nearly all his life! He loved them as a little boy & still does to this day. Daddy picked up on Grandpa's love for them as a young boy himself. How many of the babies will be Viking fans?? This year is a good year for them to start!
Thanks for all the new visitors!!!! I appreciate you so much!!!! And to all who have visited a long time, I appreciate you too!!!
Have a wonderful week!!!

The sewing is very nice Shari. But I still think my Great Grandsons are cuter.

What a cute tiny ornament, Shari! I always thought it would be fun to have a miniature tree filled with tiny little stitched ornaments like that...

Gosh, can't believe how big the three little guys are getting (although they would look even cuter in matching Steelers' outfits--ha ha!!)

Julie said...

Cuties, both the boys and the stitching!

Triplet grandkids?? That must keep you busy! Love the recent finishes. I found your blog through the PTP group. I was in their FOTM last year, but missed the signup deadline this year! I got some amazing colors in the *brights* version last year.
