A Little New Year Stitch!

I'm enjoying a little free time right now, and making stitching plans! I did a quick little New Year's stitch (now that the holiday is over!!!)  I have two more almost finished, so I feel another special tree coming on for NEXT New Year's!!

This is so sweet!  It's from Millennium 3 by Trail Creek Farm.  The color is off a little--it's gold and silver threads.
I'm doing another similar one but it's not quite finished.  I'm also working on a little reindeer New Year freebie--just needs some beads!

One of the reasons I enjoy ornaments so much is because they're quick and you finish fast!  The other reason is because when I first started cross stitching, I bought up lots of fabric and supplies, and I'm trying to use up some of those old things!

These three New Years ornaments I'm working on now are done on 22 ct. Hardanger.      I feel like my eyes might just pop out of my head right now!  HAHAHA!  I'm using a lamp and glasses!  It's killing me, but I couldn't toss this fabric away...I must be thrifty!  HA  (this is the last of it, though!)

I look forward to finishing these--I have some ideas for trims, etc.  I have to see what fabric I have that I can put with it.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful start on 2015!

Thanks for stopping by--please come back soon!

Congratulations on having a finish already! That will be a great tree if you keep making ornaments at this rate!

Wow! I am impressed that you have already got your first finish of the year. I like working on ornaments too, it really is satisfying to get a finish in between longer projects. x

Very cute finish, Frances--a wonderful start to 2015 :) (And I feel the same way about ornaments--instant gratification from those little pieces, isn't there?)

Happy 2015!
