January 2020!

Hey there, friends!  Happy New Year! 

I hope your holidays were great and 2020 is off to a great start.  We had several family gatherings to celebrate Christmas.  The gatherings are always such a good time, but the preparation sure is a lot of work.

I had an awesome surprise!

DD#2 made it home for Christmas!  Not sure how my girls managed to keep it a surprise, but I honestly had no clue until DD#2 walked through the door at our first family gathering.  This momma's heart was full!

These are the ornaments I finished and gave for gifts.  I used floss colors from my stash and changed some of the called for colors to traditional reds and greens.

In one of my facebook groups, a friend posted a photo of an UFO counted canvas project she had started years ago.  Her post reminded me of the UFO counted canvas project I had hiding in a closet.  She actually finished hers before Christmas.  I'm not as fond of this piece as when I purchased it so many years ago.  I'm just not sure I want to finish this as a framed piece.  What other options are there for finishing counted canvas pieces? 

The big news, what you've all been waiting for...

Baby Boy was born on January 14.  DD and her hubby have chosen not to share baby's information online, so I am not able to share his photo here.  He is adorable and such a sweet little bundle of joy.  Both mom and baby are doing well.

Until next time,

Happy Stitchin'
