Cotton And Twine November

This will be started soon. Maybe I will have it done in time for next Christmas.

Copper Petals by Sarah Homfray - Work From Home #41

This is on my list to complete soon. I love doing goldwork. It's also neat looking.


When The Weave's Not Even

This was supposed to be square, but... the weave wasn't even. So it's a rectangle. I think it still looks good, and I like the color.

Oh So Slowly

I am doing this as my secondary daily piece after finishing something during a week. I still am getting this done by the end of the year.


Two More Stash Pieces

I had to buy two colors of floss from 123 stitch. To justify the shipping, I bought these too.


Some Redoing

 The wine glass was off vertically by one stitch, so some ripping and redoing and now everything will line up.

Carol And The Sheep

Carol went to the veterinary barn and got to meet sheep. She was quite taken with them, and not nearly as timid as usual when confronted with new things. Now, her title is Pretty Pirate Princess the Cowdog.

The sun has eyebrows now. Her face is becoming a lot more defined.


Squares 23 And 24

They're not squares, but are rectangles. And they're done. So a bit more done on this.


Cozyblue October

Cozyblue's October offering. I am so behind on these and everything else! I am in the process of deciding which subscriptions to keep and which to cancel next month. I want more finishes and fewer things looking at me and going "stitch me!"


Sleepy Chad

Chad likes to be on the stairs. Sometimes he just looks around and plays there. Sometimes he eats a treat there. And sometimes he sleeps.

Back To Dates

The date's halfway there. There is a lot of lettering on this one.

Posey Got Round

Another stitch maynia start finished. This one was hard because I used 40 count fabric. It was so small! This is another Ink Circles Patreon only design.

Finished And Gifted

This went to Courtney, our embassy medical officer. She loved it. I think it looks pretty good in a hoop.


Grayson In The Woods

Grayson loves freedom and exploring the woods. So he got to again. Long distance is his thing.

Curled Up Carol

All curled up in her diva shirt, Carol settled in for a nap.

One Big Knot

One big knot of four done. And two corners, just about, too.


Two Dragons Done

Two big dragons done, bits of seaweed in the corner done - and two more dragons started.


Baby Shark

Chad isn't sure what to make of his shark costume. He'll wear it next year, too. I, at least, think it looks cute. He thinks it's warm.

Cotton And Twine October

This one won't be done for Christmas this year, but maybe next.

Little Leaves

The leaves are done. Things are beginning to come together on this, even if I truly suck at couching.


A Pandemic Finish

This is another one I will probably need to make again. I've already gifted it, and the recipient loves it.


Grayson In The Wild

Grayson wandering around the mountains on a brisk autumn day, learning all about how to come back when called.

Started Over

Turns out the first time I started this in May, I didn't leave a thread between the two inner areas. That threw off the rest of the stitching and resulted in me starting over.

In A Ball

I don't know how Grayson manages to make himself so small and bendy.

Woolwork Sampler Perles et Dentelles by Reflets de Soie - Work From Home #38

This is a kit I got last Christmas. Didn't have fabric, so I am using my own hand dyed stuff. Pretty good start so far.


The little marshmallow piece is now ready to give away. I'm finishing up about two or three things a week these days. I feel so happy about it!

Melrose Abbey by The Roslin Glen Collection - Work From Home #39

This kit is old. I think it's from the first time I went to Britain. I took the aida cloth out, gave it to Elyssa for some bookmarks, and switched in this hand dyed stuff.
