Stitching for me.

So far this year I have taken part in 3 exchanges the last one been posted last week. I feel it is now time to stitch for me, I have so many WIP's that I going to try and finish a few, I have made a start and have a finish, I started this last summer while on holiday it is a Sue Hawkin's scissor keep, this is I where I had got too

This is it finished.

I am doing the Country Cottage Needleworks Classic Ornament Collection this is number 2 in the series, this is as far as I had got when I picked it up last week

now the finished stitching just need to make it up, Vonna Pfeiffer from the Twisted Stitcher has stitched the models and done the finishes which you can find on her tutorial page on her blog.

This year is the Chinese Year of the Sheep, I am already on my 3rd sheep this year my last exchange was a sheep theme which I cannot share yet, I have picked up another start, it is the Little Sheep Virtues by Little House Needleworks in 2012, 

I had not got very far all I had started was the border which what I have been stitching this evening, 

Again with the sheep, we where in McDonalds last week and the happy meals are giving away Shawn the Sheep goodies,

when I saw this I just had to have it, it is a sandwich box but I have other ideals for it at the moment I have this stored in it,

All gorgeous Jayne but I especially love the scissor fob. Such a vivid pink it looks.

Beautiful work - I agree, sometimes we get so involved with blogs, forums, exchanges and SALs we forget about ourselves.
