January Finishes

Finally got a few things finished for this month.  I got my stitchin' mo~jo back~YAY!!
 This one was a freebie design and I really love the way it turned out.  Very quick and easy to do.
 I have really been enjoying stitching up some of the monthly wooly designs.  This is another one from Buttermilk Basin. (I have one kit left in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested).
 I had never tried the feather stitch before, at least I don't think so.  Maybe yrs. ago, but pretty sure I was getting it mixed up w/another stitch.
 I joined Lainey's Christmas SAL awhile back and this month we got to choose whatever we wanted to stitch, so I had this one in mind and finally got it finished just in the nick of time.  It is a bit darker in person, as I overdyed the Ariosa Linen, but couldn't get a good pic of the color.  It is really a pretty golden/tan color.

Hope everyone is staying warm!  It turned really cold here in Ky. today, and we awoke to a dusting of snow!!

Have always loved the feather stitch, darn it all, gotta get up my gumption and try it:) Yours is nice ~n~ prim so of course I adore it, like your element of textural contrast yet tone on tone, very nice!

Glad to hear your stitching mojo is back, Tanya--Your little LHN piece is so cute and I love those snowmen. I've never tried the feather stitch myself, but it looks so nice on the Snow piece!

Six inches of snow is forecast for the weekend here in western PA--ugh!! Hope your weekend is a good one :)

It's great your stitching mojo has returned. I love the Valentine and Snow man pieces. You did a great job with these.

Your Christmas Ornament is adorable.

Nice finishes.
