A finish, an almost finish and end of the year plans

So! I finished this little guy yesterday:
He was a pretty quick stitch! 

So, I decided that instead of continuing on with my rotation now (the next project in my rotation is DS2N), I would pull out Web of Life and really try to finish it up by years end. 

So here's how it looked last night when I pulled it out after finishing my ornament:
This is page 3. I've finished pages 1 and 2 already. 
After working on it last night and this morning it looks like this:

So, I've finished all the x stitches and only have back stitching to do now. I really think I should be able to finish this by the next time I share on Dec. 5th.  So keep your fingers crossed for me! 

And I think once I finish this one, I will pull out Sea of Roses and try to finish page 2 before years end. 

Here is how Web of Life looks in its entirety:

Soooooo close to a finish! So throwing the rotation out the window in hopes of having another full finish for the year! (Sorry for all the wrinkles! Oops)

Thank you for stopping by!

Ornies! A finish and some progress

I finished this little guy:

And got quite a ways with this one:

Just have to fill in his face and hair and do back stitch and he'll be done. 

To all my US readers I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Ornaments!

I started a new ornament on the 15th and here's how far I got with it:
Not too bad for 5 days worth of stitching! I'm pretty pleased with this progress. 

And I've made 3 more cards:

So 6 done, 14 more to go! Still having lots of fun with these! 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend! See yah in 5 days, hopefully with one finished star shaped Santa and the start of another ornament!

Sea of Roses

Last time I worked on it:(October 6)
After working on it the past 9 days:

Not a whole lot of progress, as on the 10th I didn't pick it up, it was my birthday and I was busy with other things. On the 11th I also didn't pick it up as it was Veteran's Day and my hubby being one, we were busy with the holiday. 
Then! This past weekend I picked up supplies to start making these:

So! I would like to make 20 Christmas cards this year. These are the first three, so I've got quite a ways to go yet. But they are So much fun to make! I am enjoying the process of coming up with designs and assembling them. And I am able to incorporate my stitching as well. So these next couple weeks are gonna be a load of fun!! However I think my stitching might suffer because of this... But oh well. It's that time of year.... I'll jump back into it full swing again come the first of the year. 

Thank you all for reading, I hope you have a wonderful week and I'll be back in a few days with progress on Christmas Ornaments (the next project in my rotation)

How dumb am I....

To save all the metallic threads for last?! Oh well, it's done now!

I present: page 2 FINISHED!!!!

You can't see it but there are a TON of sparkles!! It is SO pretty, and although a pain in the butt to stitch, the effort is SO worth it!

So, since I actually got this page done a good 8 days early, I'm gonna use the remainder of this round to pull out Sea of Roses and try to finish page 2 of it, since I failed to in its last round in my rotation. I have less than 2 columns left to go, hopefully I can get it done before the 15th and I switch to Christmas Ornaments! 

I have a few hours of quiet this morning as the hubs and daughter have gone off to buy birthday gifts for me ( my bday is on Tues), so I'm gonna go get into Sea of Roses! 

Thank you for reading, and for all your lovely comments!
