First Finish For 2007!!

Here is my first finish for this year!! I wanted to stitch something quick to feel like I have accomplished something! I have wanted to stitch this nice freebie “Two Sheep” by LHN for sometimes now & I am glad I choose it to be my first finish for the New Year, I love the way it turned out! I think I will make it into a needlebook! I have never made a needlebook & this will be perfect for my first one! I stitched this on 32ct Lambswool with DMC & started it late Sunday night & finished it late Monday night, not to bad for a quick stitch :-)

I also worked on LHN “Home of a Needleworker” over the weekend & have made a lot of progress on it! I have the house, top border & then my name & year to do, I have updated a WIP picture of it. I will work more on it this weekend. I am thinking that all my WIP’s will be my weekend projects. Hopefully I will get them done that way.

Today is BC Snapper Sal stitch day. I am going to start on the January square. Here is what I have done so far from last Thurs. I will post another update picture after this week Thurs. I am really excited to start on the Januarys square!

Happy Stitching!
