Some stitching finishes

The snow has now disappeared, only to be replaced by miserable damp rain, ugh, I hate rain, give me snow any day over rain.  While the snow is here at least you know the days are going to be bright and the sun will shine, even if only a little.

Anyway, I'm catching up on some more finishes today, I have 2 stitching finishes and 1 crochet finish :-)

I must first apologise for the terrible photos, by mid afternoon when I get home from work the light has all but gone and these were taken on my phone which doesn't have the best of cameras and If I wait to get some decent photos i'll never get another post in before Christmas!

Bonnie's 1st Christmas ornament

This is the second time I've stitched this chart, I did the same for Oliver's first Christmas, and will more than likely stitch it again next year for the new grand-baby's 1st Christmas :-)

Bonnie's birth sampler.  

The frame is grey, although it's coming out greenish on the photos, the colours are also much better than showing here, (tut)

And again, this is the second time I've stitched this one, I also stitched it for Oliver for his 1st Christmas in 2012.  I do love this design, it's not too childish, something I hope they will still want hanging in their rooms as teenagers.

This blanket I started (and finished) a while ago but i'd forgotten about it.
It's one for the new grand-baby.

Just a simple granny square with a nice crab stitch boarder to finish it off.

The colours are actually turquoise and cream, see what I mean about terrible photos!!

Nothing else to report at the moment, I break up from work on Thursday and am looking forward to spending some time doing not-a-lot, lol  - Hopefully I can get one more post in before Christmas takes over completely.

See you soon

They're all really lovely. I can't wait until we have another baby in the family so that I can craft for it, there's been no babies here since Eleanor. Enjoy your last day at work tomorrow and then your Christmas celebrations can begin.

Beautiful stitched pieces and sure to become favorites of Oliver and Bonnie. Hope you have the merriest Christmas ever!

Such pretty pieces for sweet Bonnie! Love the heart shape and that is something I need to get my nerve up to try :)

I'm with you, Maggie--I'd much rather see snow. Ours has all disappeared, but I'm hopeful we might see some for a white Christmas!

Happy Christmas to you and your family!

Lovely finishes! It is impossible to get a good picture in the winter months. Happy that the days are starting to get longer again.

Lovely finishes. Like you, I'm finding it difficult to take decent photos at the moment.
Happy Christmas to you and your family.

Super finishes for your little treasures.

Hello Maggie,

I hope you had a good Christmas time with your family. Loved to see your stitches and the nice blanket!

Bye, Carolien xxx
