First finish of 2019!

My first finish for 2019!
"Little Red Barn" & "Grandpa's Pick-up"
by Little House Needleworks
part of the Farmhouse Christmas series

and appropriate as my Dad's last car was a red pick-up :)

My finish was inspired by Priscilla of The Real Housewives of Cross Stitch.
Thanks Priscilla!

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw me post my progress.

I only changed one color - for a darker green.

And this is where it lives in our mudroom entryway.

I think it looks so nice with my Schneeman bird wreath.

My first completion from #stitchfrommystash!

I also finished a block for "Snowy Days" by Heart to Hand

And I am making good progress on my Prairie Schooler project too.
I hope to fully finish this next weekend.

We had a lot of snow last weekend and then went into the deep freeze with single digit temps and wind chills below zero. Leia is always cold once it gets below 60, but Peanut usually doesn't mind

Although he is beginning to burrow whenever he has the chance!

“Stop judging, so that you won’t be judged, because the way that you judge others will be the way that you will be judged, and you will be evaluated by the standard with which you evaluate others.
~Matthew 7:1-2

Blessings, Patti

You take care Patti! My daughter lives in Old Town Chicago and is suffering along with you! This cold is really hard if you have little ones like she has. Love the cross stitch! Need a better shot of your wreath!
