First Finish of 2016

Hey Yall!  I have a finish. I actually finished the stitching on Jan 14 on the Summer House Stitche Works Postcards New Year Design. 

I waited until today so that I could show you my FFO:

It is now happily sitting in my office at work keeping me company!  I've also worked on Afternoon in Paris.  Here's where I was as of Dec 31:

And here's where I am now!

Day 14 Challenge Piece

Wont be much longer on this one and it will be finished as well. I just have to add a cloud, some handles for my cups and finish a row of border. 

My final start to the Cross Stitch Crazy 15 day challenge has been started. It's the Frosted Pumpkin 2016 Mystery SAL The Pumpkin Passport.  Here's where I've gotten to on it:

Day 15--Frosted Pumpkin
My current plan is to work on this until I have the border and the January block completed.  After that I will begin putting my starts into a rotation.  Right now I'm contemplating working on the corresponding day of the month that I began/picked up the project from January.  I will keep  you updated!  Until then....Happy Stitching everybody!  =) Pam
