Finishing project # 1 and stashing!

I didn't stitch much this Christmas but I did get to finish a couple of things. I really need to start some finishing work again, I have a whole pile of things that I have to get to. This is Just Nan's Snow from her tin series. It comes with the little mitten needle book. I used DMC and Weeks linen.
The linen color looks really washed out in these pictures, in real life it's darker.

Before Christmas I made it to a stitching group down at Judi's shop, For the love of Stitching down in Plattsmouth, Nebraska. I found some lovely things I couldn't live without.

And she had gotten this series in too, I asked her to order them for me. It's the seasonal floral sampler's from Knotted Tree Designs. After I saw them stitched up in a shop down in Liberty I have been obsessing with them.
As always, thanks for visiting!

Your finish is very pretty. I love the box that you mounted it on - it goes so well with the design. And great stash. That should keep you very busy for a while.

Congratulations on your first finish this year. Finishing more of my stitched pieces is also on my planning list and I hope I will not lose this intention as I don't like the finishing part too much, lol.
Exciting new stash indeed. Knotted Tree is new to me, I think I have to check this designer out.
Happy 2010!

Love your finishes...they turned out so cute (especially that darling little mitten needlebook!)

Enjoy your new stash :) I've got those Knotted Tree birds too...saw them on someone's blog and just had to have them, lol!

Love your tin finish. Reminds me that I have my 'Grow' tin to do this year.

I love all your stash. The charts by Knotted Tree are beautiful.
