well, ive been on the lookout for a twelve days of christmas ornament design. i really loved theresa wentzlers ornament design for the twelve days, it was so fancy and pretty and i love her work. but having stitched (one ufo and one completed) pieces of her work, i thought, no i knew, i would never get them done in time for the holidays. i would get too frustrated with the detail like i always do, but so pretty!! anyways, then i saw the new just nan design, but also decided against those. just nan designs are cute, but i feel like they are too busy for my taste, just too much going on there. then i happened upon the designs done by cross eyed cricket, inc. and they are sooo cute!!! also different then other designs that i saw, i loved them instantly! the only downside is that they split the twelve ornaments between four leaflets, which kinda sucked but who cares....i gotta feed my monster!!! so i ordered all four of the leaflets and also the JCS ornament issue.
i still have $11 left on the card........maybe its time to feed the YARN monster......

as of right now, as shown in my previous post, ive got three projects going and trying to fit them in a weekly rotation. last week i worked diligently on needlework (too) and i must say, its come a long way. saturday i had the house to myself as my bf was working both of his jobs until about 10pm. so after a quick trip to pick up the fourth season of greys anatomy, i was planted on the couch just stitching away. i'd say im about 50% completed.....update picture to come soon.
as for acquiring stash, ive done quite well. i havent ordered anything online/purchased anything at the LNS, since um, the beginning of august? and even then i only ordered like 2....5 things.....but most of it was for an exchange i was doing with a friend. so ive been good....and now the JCS ornament issue is out....and i want.......just this one little thing.........man, thats how it always starts, im in so much trouble!!

Here is one of my newest starts from this week. Home of a Needleworker (too) by Little House Needleworks.
Ive decided to put that and Nantucket Rose (Lavender & Lace) into some sort of rotation. Here is my start on Nantucket.
and last but not least, here is my latest finish. Poppy by Nora Corbet aka Mirablia. I managed to finish all the stitching while away on vacation last month and now im just procrastinating the beading part......its so tedious!!
