Most of 2021 Finishes

During the last year I've been absent from blogging, I have been stitching!  Let me show you some/most of what I've been up to.  In no particular order....

I finished Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow by Carriage House Samplings.

I finished A Sampler Grows by The Scarlet House.  I need to FFO this one.
I finished Ann Morison by HATS with several "design elements".
I started the MMM Crafts 12 Days of Christmas Felt Ornament series.  I'm stitching this with friends via zoom.

I also found my very first cross stitch when readying my parents house to sell.  
I finished Red Deer Sampler by GiGi R.
I stitched 3 Prairie Schooler Santas but could only find photos of 2.  FFOing is in progress.

I attended a KimberBell Machine Embroidery class and finished all 3 projects.  These are my first machine embroidery projects.

I finally finished Ann Dale by Shakespeare's Peddler!
Then two weekends ago I attended another Kimberbell class and finished these 3 projects.  I had forgotten most of what I learned months and months before but it came back to me quickly! The ornaments still need a hanger and a backing.
This is an embroidered and watercolor pencil card.

Other than what I mentioned above that is missing, there is one other small project that I'll post about separately when I get it FFO'd.  I'm not sure if I' ready to finish it quite yet though.  

Wishing you the happiest holiday season and a safe New Year!

Wow! You certainly HAVE been stitching, Jackie! Loved seeing all that you've finished up, especially the Halloween at HRH. Such a fun piece. The Red Deer Sampler is gorgeous, too--love that border! And your felted ornaments and machine embroidered are all lovely.

But, most special of all is your teddy bear cross stitch that you had given your parents--the start of many wonderful and fulfilling years in needlework! Wishing you a very blessed Christmas, my friend ♥

Jackie: You have been a very busy Lady, I love all your stitching, I have to say the MMM designs 12 Days Of Christmas are amazing, I am not sure what MMM stands for could you explain? just curious.
Are the patterns available for sale?
Your quilted wall hanger is so pretty.
Your water color is such a wonderful idea to mix embroidery with water color.

Merry Christmas

Jackie, I enjoyed viewing your pictures. You have been busy with your needle and thread. Your felt ornaments are darling. Have you finished settling into your new home?

This is impressive! Your projects are all labor/time-intensive, and you've persevered through making them. I'm smiling because maybe it's not a bad thing to hold off writing a blog post for a year... it gave you the opportunity to have lots to share!

This is the first time i have ventured into blog land in over a year. I don't know why I quit reading blogs, I quit posting because the way I posted in the past doesn't seem to work any more and I got frustrated trying to work thru the problems. I might try again some day, I do love the historical records contained in blogs. Your finishing for 2021 was amazing Jackie. With everything on your plate, you did a remarkable job clicking off those big samplers. Hope 2022 is off to a grand start too. Mel
