11 Down and 1 to Go
Of all of my 11 Nutcrackers I have finished the little green dude to the far left of this picture is my favorite.
I have one more to finish before the end of 2016 and that one goal for the year will be met. Meeting my goals by the original due date never happens - so there is not a very high percentage that this one will be met - but I am so very close.
This took me so much longer than I thought it would, but I have not really concentrated much on stitching over the past couple of weeks. This is done on 22 ct white 1 over 1 all DMC called for threads, accept the faces and hands of the nutcrackers - I did them in DMC 3772 to add a little color to my project. I found this in Better Homes and Garden Christmas 1990.
I am not going to post the updates to my election challenge pictures as a blog post. They are all WIPS from my year of WIP challenge and I will post those pictures on those pages at some point.
Did a quick inventory of my Stash - Charts and Magazines only - and I am a little embarrassed at how much I have. Am going to be doing a whole bunch of different types of new starts next year, because I really did buy those charts once upon a time, because I wanted to stitch them. And I still dowant to at least give them a start.
Looking forward to having next week off. Much needed vacation - I really plan to spend so much time getting caught up on my blog reading and reconnecting with those parts of my life that bring me joy.
