only 6 more days to Christmas

Howdy all! I haven't been doing much here with the blog lately, I blame Facebook. I've discovered Farmville over there and have been playing it alot! My stitching still calls me back to reality from time to time, lol!
I don't think I will be gettin chat noir done before Christmas, especially since that is only 6 days away now. Oh well, it will get done, probably sooner rather than later since it's for someone else. I'm thinking of my new year's stitching resolutions-I'm toying with the idea of no new starts until I get some long-time wip's finished. I have a dresser drawer full of unfinished projects and it's getting to be overwhelming. So I figure it's time to put some structure back into my stitching **gasp** the startitis in me hates that idea big-time!!
I officially finished up my Christmas shopping today, I'm so proud of myself! I'm usually one of those people at walmart the day before trying desperatly to find gifts before it's too late, not this year!
I will be making a list of projects that I think I can finish next year, it's along list~;0)

chat noir update

Here is some progress on chat noir, as you can see I'm procrastinating on stitching all the black on the kitty! Soon that will be the only color left so I will have no choice but to stitch it, lol I'm hoping to get this finished before the end of the year, fingers crossed~

my Quaker Patchwork wip

I've been working on a new start this past week, I started the Quaker Patchwork, it is a free sal from the Wiehenburg yahoo group. It's so pretty, I couldn't wait to get started so I just jumped in, lol. I'm using 18 count aida and Vikki Clayton hdf, most of the colors are not labeled and I'm picking my own as I go along. A patchwork to me must be full of color, every single color you can think of!

Here is the link to the group if you want to go check it out! I love the samplers she has, they are all soo pretty!

my Colorado Ripple aghan

Here is my Colorado Ripple afghan all finished! It's white and dark sage green, not black like it looks in the pic, lol. Now I need to get back to work on a round ripple I started in camo colors, I'd like to finish it in time to give to my brother for Christmas~hugs

My orts!

As promised, here are my orts. I was keeping them in an old goldfish bowl, but recently got this old jar in a bunch of my mother-n-laws sewing stuff my father-n-law brought to me. It was holding buttons but I decided it would be much nicer with all my pretty threads in it. It doesn't have a lid and I normally keep it right next to me on the kitchen table where I do most of my stitching these days. I like the idea that something I always thought of as trash can be considered artsy!
