January Update

I can't believe how fast this first month of 2016 has passed!
I have been busy stitching and working.  Here are my stitching finishes-

Good Intentions
Kathy Barrick

Renaissance Designs
12 Days of Christmas #10

DD#1 called and told me there was going to be a craft day and it was going to be at my house.  I said ok.  This is what I ended up with-a ribbon tree. I have admired the trees that DD#1 made a couple of years ago.  We used Christmas ribbon from our stashes. It will look great on my mantle next Christmas!
I found this stitched Melissa Shirley canvas in November on a table at my EGA retreat in the Trash to Treasure room. I couldn't believe someone didn't want it.  There was a small inappropriate saying on the sign above the windows.  So I ripped out the stitching, replaced it and added a pin, and voila!  Ready for the finisher.
I also started three big projects-
Plum Street Samplers
The Flood
This ark is huge.  That is a 12" hoop.

Catherine Theron
The Hidden Magnolia Sampler
Hillside Samplings
Ann Tarbox
(Please excuse the horrid picture)
I have loved this sampler for a long time and thought I'd better get going.
There is one more large project to get going on this year. I'll share it next time.
Have a great weekend!
