Stitch from my Stash 2020

"Ready, Set, Snow'"

This has been on my "must stitch" pile for two years complete with the little clipboard!

I switched up the colors to match the buffalo plaid. 

The design was the perfect size for the clipboard stand!

I added some black rick rack to finish it off.

I am so happy with how it turned out!

It reminded me of a design that I stitched several years ago, 
but hadn't put it out as I no longer liked the finish. Time for  a redo!

"January: A Year in Chalk"

Now I love it!
I was inspired by Priscilla and Chelsea.
Priscilla had shown this tin for one of her finishes and I really liked it.
I picked it up on clearance at Hobby Lobby last year.

I added some white rick rack and 
the cute bow and snowman on the handle was on a gift from a friend!
I found the cute galvanized snowflakes on clearance at Hobby Lobby as well.
Thanks Priscilla & Chelsea for inspiring a few finishes! 

"Advent Candles"

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw my Advent Sunday Stitching
I didn't finish them all by Christmas, so I just kept going each Sunday into the new year.
Now I'm ready for Advent 2020!

Here is a close up.
This December I plan to make a wreath for them to sit in.

I thought that this ribbon in my stash was a pretty good match.

And I backed them with a plaid homespun.

Now I've been working on:

"Trio of  Winter Houses"

I'm quickly running out of January days, so this may need to wait until next year to be finished...

Be completely humble and gentle; 
be patient, bearing with one another in love.
~Ephesians 4:2

Blessings, Patti

Beautiful finishes. My favorites are the Advent candle ties. They turned out beautifully and you are ahead of the game come December. Love the two snowy finishes! Your houses are looking good. You have had a very productive January!
