A little bit of stitching

I can't believe how little time I have to stitch these days, Amelie is still having sleep issues. I have been drinking a herbal tea that's supposed to help her digestive system and enrich my milk supply so hopefully this helps her a little bit.

I am glad to say that Jill has received the Christmas ornament I stitched for her for Hooked On Exchanging. I didn't end up using a very Christmassy fabric for the backing, because I just was unable to find a nice one that matched, but I think this one is just perfect.

Design: Joyeux Noel
Designer: Cat's Whiskers Design Studio (JCS 2007 Ornament Issue)
Fabric: 28ct Zweigart linen - Antique Ivory
Threads: DMC and Mill Hill Beads
Finish: Pinkeep ornament

I completed this little one as well. I needed to get some little finishes done, to get me back in the stitching groove.

Design: Bee Hive
Designer: Elizabeth's Designs
Fabric: 32ct Belfast linen - Vintage Country Mocha

Threads: Gentle Art Sampler Thread

I have also completed my Fair & Square Round #10 squares, which will be posted tomorrow, so I should be able to share those some time next week. I have almost completed stitching my square for Cathy for the Little House Needleworks RR and I have been working on some Christmas ornaments for my girls and should also been able to share those in the coming weeks.

I hope to get a few more little finishes done before Christmas, so in the new year I can take a trip to the patchwork store and purchase some lovely backing fabric for them all. That should be fun!

Very beautiful!
The choice of fabric is perfect, in the mood of the design, very romantic. I love it.
You are a surprising person (answers to your tag). A hero (a firefighter is a hero for me, don't discuss that!) who doesn't drive...
Many hugs to you and your lovely family.

Suzanne, both of them are sooo pretty! I think that you still get lots of stitching done with the newborn.
Have a good Sunday, Margit
