Calendar stitcheries and preparations...

I'm here, I'm here, I'm still here!  Where did the last 2 weeks go?!?  PREPARATIONS!  But first, check these out...(in no particular order).

January...
 February...
April...
 December...

 May...
 June...
 July...
 August...
 September...
 October...
 November...
March...

These are beautiful Kathy Schmitz designs that are supposed to be stitched in all black and form one small wallhanging, but I decided to make them into individual very small wall hangings...something to change out every month.  I also decided to add a little bit of color to each one.

I still need to quilt simply and bind each one, then they will be a finished Christmas gift for one of my sisters.

Sorry not to post in so long...thank you to those who have emailed me to see where I've been.  As some of you know, my husband and I started doing some home improvement projects and painting half the inside of the house at the end of the summer.  We had been putting it off for years and finally made a commitment to do it.  Then we were blessed to find that my Dad, Stepmother, and my favorite Aunt wanted to come for Thanksgiving.  We were so excited!  Needless to say, we put it in high gear and will be finished with everything by the time they get here on Tuesday.  Whew!!!

Thank God they are coming...no telling how long we would have dragged all this out without the delightful threat of house guests.  Now it will all be done for the whole holiday season.

I always work better with a deadline in mind...

Have a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday!

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  5. Those are soooo cute! I have some calendar snowmen patterns that I've been thinking of doing - now I think I have the inspiration. They'd be really nice hanging in my entryway. I just noticed that you're from Ypsi. I'm from over between Muskegon & Ludington. I just started following you, though it might not show cuz I've got you as a gadget on igoogle.

  6. They're beautiful; however, you have the flag flying incorrectly. The blue standard should always be in the upper left corner.

  8. They are all so great. Each one is so special in its own way. I am drawn to the Santa. Wonder why? Hope you had a great Thanksgiving with your family.

  10. Great stitcheries girl...all extremely adorable!

    Well...since you and hubby probable don't have sore muscles from all that painting, why not come on down here and help me finish mine!! My whole downstairs is a disaster area. We were invited out for Thanksgiving so I didn't have to hustle it up....BUT...I should be dragging out the Christmas stuff instead of dragging out more paint...HA!!
