New Year's Eve

 Here we are at the end of a very long year. I'm not expecting a big change to how things are going any time soon. But I am enough of an optimist to forsee improvements coming in 2021.

Here's one last project for 2020. I may have started this in January this year. I really should be stitching several of these santas every year if I'm ever going to stitch all that I have. Trust me, I have a lot.

Tomorrow I am going to start one new sampler. It's a small one and it seems rather appropriate. 

See you back here in 2021.

Christmas Stitching

 I wasn't sure what to stitch next. But I was perusing my smalls that are kitted and this Fern Ridge project spoke to me.

I had about ten stitches in when I picked it up. I'm not enjoying the offset four-sided stitch so we'll see if I stick with it.

And a Christmas gift that I finished yesterday. Only started this back in 2006 or 2007 while stitching at the Scarlet Thread.

It's a Wrap

 Catherine Agnes is done. Finished right before dinner.

Approaching the Finish Line

I haven't given up. Today I reached the final steps for Catherine Agnes. And I had no choice but to begin cutting threads. Two boxes down, two to go. The wrapping of the bars should be a fairly quick process. Who knows? I might be done by Christmas.

Sticking with It

 I continue to be fascinated with Catherine Agnes.

All my spot motifs are finished except for the acorns. And the reticello corners. I've got one more band on the left. Then borders, corners, and letters. So much enjoyment here.

Steady Progress

 Finished my upper right corner. Started my woven spider webs motif. Enjoying most every second of this. Except bullion knots number one and fifteen. Those two just about pushed me over the edge.

Catherine Agnes Again

 Just a little update. Added some bands. Started the alphabet.
