Last Post of 2019

And I have a page finish.  This makes 26 HaED page finishes this year, plus two Christmas stockings.  All in all not a bad year of stitching.

This is page 24;9& Wind Moon, started December 14 and finished December 29 for a total of 7520 stitches.

I’m going to put Wind Moon away for a while now but I promise she won’t be in hiding for a full year before I work on her again. I am hoping to work on her regularly this coming year.

I’m going to take a small break from HaED and work on another. Christmas stocking.  It’s for my sister and she has a great love of owls.

What an end to what has been a crazy, busy year.  We sold a house, we bought a house, we moved, we landscaped, we planted. I’m looking forward to seeing the fruits of our labour in 2020.

Thanks to all who visited my little room on this vast and endless internet.

I will see you all in 2020.

Advent Calendar

This is a non stitching post, but I wanted to share the advent calendar that I made for my scotch loving husband.

It helped that we had guests from Scotland this past summer and they were lovely enough to bring me 25 little sample bottles of scotch.
Then I was looking for inspiration as to how to make these into an advent calendar.  So I bought some little tubes and cut them down to size.  Then I made 25 little felt stocking that I bought as a kit from 123stitch.

Assembled them with The help of Kip.

And voila! 

To say it was a success is an understatement.
He’s a pretty happy husband.

End of Row 4

I am now 50% done his project. 

I hope to get one more page done before the end of the year and the page count starts again. But I think 25 page finishes is pretty respectable. 

I’m spending the evening bobbinating 90 bobbins for a new project, which I will announce in the new year.

I hope to see you all one last time before Jan 1.
