A (not so) "in season" stitcher

"Boughs of Holly"
design by Maggie Bonanomi
a Country Sampler Girls Club Kit

 I am usually an "in season" stitcher. As soon as a holiday or season is over, I stop work on that seasonal project and pack it away for the following year. Then start something for the given new season / holiday.

Let's call this a "winter" project :)
I just love the colors and the way that it turned out!
Thanks Maggie for another phenomenal project and thanks Jeanne of Country Sampler for another incredible year of the Maggie Club. I can't wait to see what 2013 brings...

I realized that I didn't have any good backing fabric for this piece, so I gave Jeanne a ring and she sent me the perfect fabric - I just love it!
(I always add ticking tags with something meaningful to me while creating when I complete a project.)
Now it is on to a few snowmen and wintery projects...
I hear some Valentine projects whispering in my ear :)
I spent a few minutes today adding to my etsy shop ~ a few handmades and a few antique treasures.
I am trying to downsize, but it is always hard to part with treasures ;)
