Overdue Update

Well, here I am!  It's 2014!  Happy New Year everyone!  How is your year going so far?  Mine is fantastic!!!!  I can't even tell you why, it's just a feeling I have surrounding me!  It's going to be a great year!

Lots of little finishes to share with you.

The first two are actually not even really cross stitch patterns.  They are actually knitting patterns!  Who knew!!  I found these on Pinterest...and when I actually looked at the sites they were for mittens etc.  Well I decided that I would stitch them....and aren't they going to be adorable ornaments  :)
The deer is from Fabulous Fair Isle's Pinterest board...not sure where the original came from.  But that's what I worked off of.  I'm calling this Knitting Deer.
 This was another Pinterest find...Called Bird Thumb...which I am guess is to be knitted on the thumb of a mitten.  It can be found here.
 I love this little pinecone ornament.  Kati had stitched this either last year or the year before and I fell in love with it then.  Finally this year I actually got around to stitching it.  It will look great on the tree next year (oops...this year).  This freebie can be found here
 Another ornament that Kati has stitched that I just had to stitch is this little cardinal.  Isn't it pretty?  It's called Peace Cardical, but I didn't stitch the work peace on it.  It stands alone quite nicely without the word.
The freebie chart for this one can be found here.
 And the last of the freebies that I stitched this season (actually truth be told these were all stitched after Christmas...I was on a small's roll...I have hundreds of pretty little freebies and I just loved working on them.  They are quick and satisfying stitching.  But back to Stocking Reindeer.  A Daffycat original.  I have all her reindeer stitched up just waiting for the 2014 addition now :)  You can email her thru her blog if you are interested in getting this one or any of her other reindeer or freebies.
 And last but certainly not Sunday SAL with Kati.  Silver Linings Humboldt Coast is coming along nicely.  The picture really doesn't do it justice at all.  It's coming along quite nicely.  With a couple of breask due to summer and Christmas, we have been stitching on this project every Sunday for a year now!  Wow!!

So tonight I am going to start a new project.  Mirabilia's Elizabeth! I'm so excited!  I haven't stitched  a Mira in a while now, so I'm glad to be doing one now.  I'll be posting updates as I go along :)
