Christmas Gift Stitcheries


Hope you all enjoyed ringing in the New Year.


Today I thought I would share a few of the finished stitcheries that I gave as gifts this Christmas.

I got a late start this Christmas so I stuck with 5X7 sizes so that I could get them all finished. I stayed up late stitching into the nights in hopes of completing them all. I finished the last one just in the nick of time.

I used patterns that I found here on the internet. I know the sunflower one came from The Pickled Pepper Patch but I am unsure of where I found the other one. If anyone recognizes it please let me know and I will gladly give credit where credit is due.

While talking of credit, I would like to say that I am so thankful that all of you creative people are willing to share your desings with us. I am going to try to organize each and every pattern that I have saved so that I can give the proper credit when and if I post about using someone's pattern.
Photobucket
Some of you add your name to your patterns and that is a great help. When I come across a pattern that I like I save it to my documents. I don't change the file name or anything. Then in a week or two when I go back to save it to a disk I can't remember where it came from.

Anyone else do this??

So I have a long task ahead of me~ to search for all the free patterns that I have collected and put a name with them.
I hope to find all of them but fear that a few may be lost.

Well I think I'll go curl up with a blanket and work on another stichery.
It's pretty cold here but I know some of you are in the below freezing temps. which is way colder than here.
So stay warm wherever you are.

Very cute - I use to crosstitch a lot - this looks much quicker! If this cold spell hangs on and I get all my Christmas stuff put away I just might have time to start a project...

They are adorable and make great gifts.
I haven't done stitching like that for years. Wish I had time.

Happy New Year ~
