Ninth & Tenth Finish For 2012

Yes, I'm still trying to catch up on showing you my finishes from last year! Hopefully I'll be done soon so you can see what I have stitched in 2013. Maybe someone can light that fire so I can back my butt into it. Otherwise, at this rate, it will be 2014 before you see anything that I have done this year ;o) LOL!

Finish nine is called Humble Gratitude by 4 My Boys -

This chart was handed down to me by Sharon after she finished it herself and I want to thank her for her kindness. I love this pattern and why wouldn't I seeing as there is a pumpkin in it ;o)

In honor of Sharon, I would like to do a RAK and send this pattern off to someone else that would like to stitch it. If you are interested, please say so in your comment and I'll pick a name (if more than one person would like it) and let you know in a few days. Please make sure I have a way to contact you if you are the lucky person.

My tenth finish is Peep by Lizzie Kate -

This is just cuteness. The pattern came with the fabric and I used the recommended threads. I see this one finished as a cube. When will that get done? HA! I doubt anytime soon... A girl can dream though ;o)

There are six more projects left to show so expect pictures very soon! I also have my appointment with the Oncologist tomorrow so I will be posting an update after we know more as to what is going on with me. I'll be honest, your thoughts and prayers are certainly needed at this time :o(

What a cute pattern. Your stitching is perfect and the pumpkin color really pops. I love TP's (and I don't mean toilet paper), so I'd love to be in the drawing. LK isn't showing, but I bet it's adorable.

My thoughts are with you for a successful visit to the Doc.

I love the simple design of this piece. I teach cross stitch to girls and women in crisis situations for stress relief and am always looking for things I can teach with that are simple and easy (we can talk better at the same time!). I would love this pattern for myself and then I can order the supplies and more patterns for the ones who sign up for the class (I provide all the materials for them too). Thanks for the chance!
