Miss B in the tree

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas/Holiday. I am off today and tomorrow so I really wanted to finish up some pieces I have been stitching for a long time. I finished The Trilogy "Autumn Line-up" and "Scarlet Berries" from Carriage House Samplings. I am very happy with both finishes. I just spent some time up in my craft/sewing room reorganizing my stash and fabrics and I found the design I want to stitch. It is Be Not Weary by Hands to Work. I have loved this design since I bought it a few years ago and don't know why I haven't started it before today. Anyway, I am fighting the urge to buy a pizza. I have been on the South Beach Diet and have lost 14 pounds. It's a really good change but I do crave pizza... a lot. :) Oh, and here is a picture of Bella in my Christmas tree. She climbed up the trunk and made herself
comfortable. I had to pull her out after 30 minutes. Silly kitty.

Penny rug

Real quick (because I am at work), I made this wool penny rug for my good friend Robyn for Christmas. It was fun to do and I got some nice merino wool for the snowman's scarf and some of the circles. More later including the kitties christmas tree. :)

CA Week 15, stocking, and The Baby B

I can't believe it is week 15 on the Celtic Autumn stitch-along with Sue and Joyce. I was home not feeling well today so I got to stitch a lot on this and am really happy with how it is coming out. I have done more on the 2 red houses for my aunt and uncle but didn't post a pic this time. I need to finish that quick so I can make a frame and get it done before Christmas. I finished my Mom's stocking and love how it came out. The back fabric is green with green tree branches and the lining is muslin. That lining was tricky but once I remembered how to do it, it wasn't so bad. And, a picture of Bella, aka The Baby B. I put my tree up the other day and Chester and Bella lost their minds. They have been chasing each other around it like lunatics, hiding behind it and under it. It is so funny to watch. Maggie was dipping her paw in the water and licking it off the other day too. Oh, they love Christmas. :)

Well I have been stitching a lot for Christmas presents. Here is an update of the stocking for my Mom and 2 red houses by Little House Needleworks for my aunt and uncle. I am working on a few other things too but I can't post it yet. I have also been stitching a lot on Scarlet Berries but forgot to take a pic of it so I will post it later. Here is a picture of Chester in his favorite spot in the house; under the coffee table. I hope everyone's Christmas shopping and planning is going well!
