Lots of finished stitching pieces!

I haven't been sitting "still" lately. With a lot of work at the office, I managed to take some time to stitch. I've finished stitching three pieces. Just in time for the next month.
Two monthly Christmas ornaments from LHN and one February Floss Tag from The Needle's Content. All I have to do is to finish-finish them.

For all the pictures: click to enlarge, if you want!

The first one: Fa-La-La by LHN:

The second one: Pear Tree by LHN:

And least but not least: The February Floss Tag by The Needle's Content:

Today I went to the yearly market in Zwolle: De Handwerkbeurs. And look what I brought home with me. Lots of goodies.
A banddesign with birdhouses by UB-Design, 24(!) pieces of fabric (Romance style), a little purse to make with quiltfabrics and other little goodies (see below).
Isn't it adorable; with a tiny sewing machine.
Ribbon's and pins.

So the finishing of the 3 pieces mentioned earlier will be done the next Sunday. I hope you can't blame me!

Till next time, lots of love and hugs!

Started on my first ornament for this year!

The package with the first two ornaments arrived!

I've started on the first one: All Dolled Up! from Little House Needleworks.

I stitch it on 30-count Cappucino with Venus threads instead of the recommended DMC.

Last week I finished stitching my third PIF project. Only two to go! I can't show you any pictures yet, but I can tell you, this one is adorable. I bought the finishing stuff for it yesterday; I surely hope the PIF members will like what I made for them.

Today I haven't stitch much, because I had to do some work done at the office. I also have a lot of reading to do, on all the blogs I love. Maybe next week.

Till next time, lots of love and hugs.
