Finish and New Stash!

I was able to spend a while yesterday in my sewing room listening to Christmas music and getting All Is Calm finished up into a small pillow.  I will tuck it into my wooden bowl.

An order arrived with some new stash!  Hopefully will get some of these stitched in 2013!

These two oldies, but goodies were picked up at one of my LNS, The Stitchworks, last night:


 I usually pull everything out (all WIPs, kitted charts, fabrics, and fibers) during the week between Christmas and New Year, to plan what to begin on Jan 1, and to see what I need to be able to kit up more charts! I am itching to get into it and enjoy looking at stash.  Sometimes I think that's as enjoyable as the actual stitching!  Anyone else like that??

 Thanks for stopping by!  Blessings and wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

I do the same thing Mary, haul everything out to kit up. I did that this morning! Your LHN pillow looks great; I'll have to try that 'layered' look one day. Have a wonderful weekend and Merry Christmas!

Love the pillow.

Looks like you have a few things to keep you busy for a while...

Don't forget about the SAL for the heart in the Jan Feb 2013 issue of Just Cross Stitch.

I still haven't been able to get my paws on a copy, but I'll keep checking.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours dear friend.

I think that you are right about the kitting! It is lots of fun organizing your projects.
All is Calm is just beautiful.
Great new stash!

Oh, new stash. It could have been me who bought the charts as I love them all. Sheepish Designs is one of my favourites and the chart you show is just beautiful.
All Is Calm looks great, very nice finishing.
Like you I'm looking forward to diving into my stash and pull out some projects for the new stitching year. That's always an exciting adventure.

Looks like you'll be stitching some very pretty things in 2013 with all that new stash, Mary!! Lovely new addition to your bowl, too :)

Merry Christmas to you and your entire family...

I could spend hours browsing through my stash, choosing fabrics and floss for upcoming projects. All your new stash should keep you pretty busy in the new year.
I love your LHN ornie finish too!

Merry Christmas wishes to you and your family and all the best for 2013!
