Wednesday's at My House
Anyway on Monday I worked on my 6 Fat Men SAL, on Tuesday I was sick most of the day and also tried to decide which chart I wanted to stitch next. On Wednesday I just couldn't decide so I pulled my UFO box out. It has about 6 unfinished cross stitch Santa's in it along with a set of 6 wool felt Christmas mittens ornaments and a sampler stitched over 2 on linen! The mittens are complete except for blanket stitching them together. I hate to blanket stitch because of spacing. I decided to pull out one of the Santa's and started working on it. The date on the bottom of the chart is 1995! When my husband and I married back in 1986 I started cross stitching a Mr and Mrs Santa ornament for us each year. I have about a dozen. In the UFO box are 3 more plus I've also found a set online and printed them out. I'll never catch up but I do have a nice "collection" anyway.
The picture is of the one I decided to finish first. I don't have the red plastic frame anymore. I'm sure I made the decision back in 1995 that I wasn't going to use it. I'm thinking about making it into a wall hanging so I'll be going into that quilting fabric so some fabric!
I hope everyone has a project their working on whether its a brand new chart, a SAL or a UFO! I'm hoping for great progress on this one until Monday when I can again work on my 6 Fat Men SAL.
Have a great weekend, hope you all have sunny skies and warm weather!
