Day #12 - Starry Snowman

Another ornament for next Christmas! This is on 18 count Aida with lots of quarter-stitches which are a real pain! I'm glad that I'm finally getting around to starting all these little kits that have been in my stash for so long, thanks to the Crazy January Challenge.

Day #11 - Santa

This is my first cross stitch on plastic canvas. I'm still catching up on the Crazy January Challenge. Now I have three ornaments on the way for next Christmas!

Day #10 - Sleeping Teddy

I'm still playing catch-up on the last few small projects for my Crazy January Challenge.  This little Christmas ornament has a teddy bear asleep in bed, dreaming about Christmas goodies. It comes with the house-shaped frame.

An Apple a Day - framed!

I stitched this for my mother's neighbor. My mom found an old frame and painted it just the right shade of red! I signed the back but didn't stitch my initials. I think I will start to do that from now on.

Day #9 - Tree With Gifts

I have always wanted to have cross-stitched ornaments on my Christmas tree, and I've been buying ornie kits for years.  Thanks to the Crazy January Challenge, I finally got started on my first one!  It comes with a house-shaped plastic frame.  How cute!

Hen on Nest update #1

I kind of pooped out on the Crazy January Challenge.  I still have to start on the small items for Days #9-15.  I've been stitching on "Hen on Nest" for my mom.  Here is a little progress, along with a pic of what it will look like when it's finished:

I baked some yummy chocolate cookies yesterday!  See pics and recipe on my other blog.
