A Very Late IH&SW Report

   I did manage to get some stitching in this past weekend which was IH&SW.  We had a surprise visit from son #1 and I did some online Christmas shopping which used up some of my time but I stitched as much a possible.
  Most of my time was spent on Cinnamon Stars.  It seems like I have been working on it for a long time but I guess not really.  Since I have pretty much abandoned the rotation and have been working on one piece at a time lately, all of them seem to drag on.  I guess I need to get that rotation going again!!  So, here is where I am with CS:

Cinnamon Stars by Plum Street

w/ listed threads

Yes, I know my scarecrow is headless, which is kind of creepy, and I need to add the corn to the stalks.  I am planning to go upstairs as soon as I post this and hopefully finish this piece tonight!
    There are so many cute, new things coming out and Christmas stitching is calling my name.  I added several new holiday/winter pieces  to the stash recently but I think my next start will have to be the new Little House Lantern Lane.  I just love that one, you know, the big red house, the holly! 
   So that's about it for now.  I hope to have a new finish and a new start soon.  I'll keep you posted!!

Hope you're all having as much fun with your stitching as I am,  Laura

  7. I'm starting this in January. I love following your progress. So pretty!

  8. Cinnamon Stars is going to be a New Years SAL for me with my stitching buddy--can't wait to do it! Paulette has another winner! Your fabric choice is perfect! (We will be using 40 count also...) I look forward to your next progress picture! Hugs!
