A Little Stitching

I always start out trying to keep track of what I stitch every year and then I flop.
I feel like I might have finished a few more - maybe I've already posted them, maybe not. 
Sometimes I give them away before I get photos, which causes a problem when I try to remember who I gave it to.
Anywho - here is what I know I haven't posted yet. I'm so far behind these people who stitch 100+ a year.

This is the only new (handmade) ornament on my tree this year. I decided to give punchneedle another try. I used Lori Holt's Stitchy Starts cross stitch pattern and just drew it off on the weavers cloth and picked some reds and greens so I could use it for Christmas.

Hey There Pumpkin by Hands On Design.
This is a random piece of evenweave fabric from my stash that I dunked in some tea/coffee. I think I used the called for colors. I hope to get it something done with it before next fall.

I Wish You Lived Next Door by Heartstring Samplery.
Sitched on 36ct Light Coffee with the called for DMC. Ones strand over two. 
I finished it into a small pillow for a friend's birthday.

The next four are all from Jack-o-Lantern Jubilee by Brenda Gervais.
They are all on yet another mystery fabric from my stash that was dunked in tea/coffee.

I think there are two more in the book that I would like to get stitched (and ffo'd) before Halloween but I'm not sure if I have any more of this particular fabric. (which is a shame because I really like stitching on it!)

The next three are from Stitching With The Housewives

Chicken Joy
Stitched on 29ct Glenshee using the called for colors

Mrs. Claus on 28ct Black Cashel Linen with DMC except for the white and I used Anchor for that.

Mr. Claus stitched on 28ct black Cashel linen using DMC floss.

I hope to get all these fully finished before next fall/Christmas. 

I usually take pictures of all my Christmas decor as I put it out but this year life happened and photos didn't. I plan to start taking it down tomorrow so maybe I can get photos before I take it down. If I do, I'll post them next time.
