The Sanctuary

I have finally finished The Sanctuary, well as much as I am going to do.  I have taken so long to finish this that I do not want to do the pulled work around the edges as I am sure I will do something wrong.  When I frame it I will make sure I leave enough so that if at anytime I feel able to do it I can.  

I am so pleased I have finished this and after a few small finishes I will tackle another UFO.  I am determined to finish as many UFO as possible this year.

Just Nan's Crystal Heart.

Another chart I have had for a long time, I just need to find four pearl beads to go in the centre of the blue squares.  I did have the crystal beads although you can hardly see them in the photo.  There is also supposed to be a crystal heart in the centre but even if I cannot find one or the pearl beads it will look great as an ornament.

I am going to try and make sure I do more smaller charts in between my larger ones so hopefully I will have more to show you this year.  Mind you I suppose I should really finish more of them into ornaments etc or my pile of stitched but not finished pieces will grow even taller.

First finishes of 2011

Well I had better post these before I forget, very busy at the moment but still make sure I stitch a bit each day.  Two very quick finishes the first is the Lizzie Kate 'Be Naughty'. 

Such a cute design, I knew I had to stitch it as soon as I saw it. LOL

The second one is a tiny snowman

He is tiny I promise, a lot smaller then the 'Be Naughty' one.  Not sure what I will do with him, maybe a scissor fob.

Pepermint Twist ornament

I nearly forgot to post the finished ornament!  I was packing away all the Christmas decorations and remembered I had promised to post the finished ornament.

I really loved stitching this and hopefully I will be able to stitch more from the series suring the year.

Ice Cream and Santa

Here is the Ice Cream Sampler by Country Cottage Needlework

Unfortunately it has not scanned very well and my camera is still not charged, I'll take a photo of it when it has been finished into a banner.

I did finish the Lizzie Kate Santa 2010 at 10 minutes to midnight so it became my last finish of 2010.

This one will be made into a pillow to go with the other Santa's I made into pillows from Lizzie Kate.
I have started a Lizzie Kate Quick-it called Be Naughty, so cute as soon as I saw it I knew I had to stitch it.
