For some reason, finishing the birth announcement triggered a desire to start something new. I didn't start just one new project. Oh no, that would be the most sensible. Nope, I started three new projects! REALLY?! What am I thinking?
Thankfully, one of the projects is already completed. What do you think this is?
Here is the finished pup just waiting to be adopted by my granddaughter.
So I finished the birth announcement which you can see here. Of course that means that I have to start another cross-stitch project even though I have 2 others already in progress. You may remember that I made my son-in-law a Christmas stocking. You can see that here. I had already chosen a pattern and bought the fabric for a stocking for my daughter-in-law. My son and daughter-in-law will be visiting for Christmas, so I decided that I would try to stitch her stocking to have it ready this year. She is a veterinarian, so this is the stocking I chose to make. It is from the Winter 2015 "Cross-stitch and Needlework" magazine.
I want to make a trip to Joann's soon to get backing and lining fabric as I want somethingt o complement the light blue.
What else did I start you ask? I have been wanting to stitch up some Christmas fabric to make gifts for Christmas. I can't tell you what they will be, but this is where I have started.
I have also been busy baking. It is Autumn, so I had to bake something with pumpkin. I have been collecting recipe clippings for years and years, but I don't always get around to making many of them. I decided to try this one for Pumpkin Bread that came from September/October 1996 Country Woman magazine. Yes, I have been holding on to it for 26 years!
Well that is all for now. My daughter and granddaughter are visiting for the weekend so I have to go enjoy some snuggles.
I will be joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching.
Thanks for stopping by!
