First Finish of 2012

Yay!! I finished my "Little Drummer Boy" canvas. I saw this Sandy Jenkins canvas at my local store, Stitch by Stitch, already stitched & framed. Drummer Boy is one of my favorite Christmas songs, so I had to get this. It actually came with a stitch guide, but I knew that Tony Minieri could do some amazing things with this, so it was my project at our class just this past December.

I was right. This was fun to stitch, & Tony used some great threads & stitches.

Today was Stitch by Stitch's 7th anniversary. The store had a fun party, with prizes, snacks & special sales. I even won a prize & ordered a canvas from the upcoming TNNA show. I'm sure we're all looking forward to seeing the new treats the designers have for us; many of us have been following along with the hints left by the Needlepoint Group members.

On to the next project!!

Very sweet. Will it be an ornament?

I think I will be finishing this as a stand up. I had a chat with our LNS about what I want, they were going to speak to the finishers. Will drop it off after the trade show & will let everyone see it when it comes back

Linda-Have you seen the roof of the Thanksgiving House that Amy has posted on Facebook? Wow! Can't wait to get my hands on that. Hope you are stitching today.
