New Year Starts/Christmas Finishes

Happy New Year!

My two New Year starts were Cattleya Orchid by Chatelaine and Our Love Nest by Country Cottage Needleworks. I love the colors in the Orchid. They are so bright and cheerful. I did avoid working in the center of the square because it has some over one stitching. I will get to it later.

Here is my second start, Our Love Nest. The pink thread, Blushing Beauty by Crescent Colours, looks so pretty. I stitched a bunch on this one last night while watching Downton Abbey (yay!), and my plan is to finish it up before Valentine's Day.

Lastly, I have two ornaments that I finished up before Christmas. They are Tree Farm and Snow in Love by Little House Needleworks. The reindeer in Tree Farm looks so cute :)


Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
