The Frosty Forest is complete. I'm so very proud of this piece. It was fun getting the patterns and buttons monthly and I never lost interest in it the entire time. I did change the block in the middle. I took a house from another Country Cottage design and changed the colours to match the other blocks. The other elements in the center block are just snippets from the other patterns.

I was also able to buy a frame from the local farmers market for this piece. I really like how it turned out. I also secured a frame for Needleworker by Little House Needleworks that I stitched awhile back. Getting a piece framed is so satisfying.
Another piece that I was able to complete was something I stitched on a whim. It was fall and the time was right and it had such adorable kitties on it. Here is "Here Kitty Kitty" by County Cottage Needleworks. I did change some of the kitties to match some of my favorite feline friends. My goal is to make a little pillow out of this I think.

The only other full finish I had was called Woodland Sampler by The Frosted Forest. I have no real reason for stitching this other than it just really appealed to me at the time and it was so cute and whimsical. I stitched this on 28 count Lemon Sorbet jobelan by Crafty Kitten.
I also did a RR block for a friend. I chose Cassiopia from Mirabilia. I changed her direction and made her my own a bit, but she turned out very pretty, if I do say so myself.
Right now I have in the works - Still Persephone by Mirabilia.. I keep stitching and stitching and I don't feel like I'm getting anywhere...
Lizzie Kate Mystery Sampler: Things Unseen - I have part 1 done:
At the Met by Mirabilia: my current and active project. I feel like I'm getting close to finish and I don't want to really trump my finish - so here is a close up for you... I'm using Hint of Autumn by Crafty Kitten for this one.
Finally I am working on a huge project for me. It is a pattern by Colour Cascade Fabrics. I won it on Facebook. I decided I wasn't going to take the prize unless I was going to stitch it. This is called: The Lovely Lady - the pattern is 55 pages long. I'm doing it 2 threads over 1 on 25 count. I think I will be working on this one for years!
See... a lot on the go. I'm trying for finishes at this point. Once again, a loose promise to blog more often. Feel free to share links to the blog and if using them please give me credit for the photos. I haven't watermarked them because I am hoping I don't really have to. Thank you for reading.
I hope you get lots of stitching time.
