I had hoped to have this done a couple days ago and to have my first finish of the year on Jan 1, but I guess this is close enough:)
This is 'Oh Christmas Tree' from With Thy Needle and Thread. As you may or may not be able to see, it will be finished off as a stuffed snowman with this design as the pouch. The pouch can then be filled with greenery, candy canes, sheet music, or whatever screams 'holidays' to you.
I really should have put something in my 52 in 52 project for sewing up, framing or other 'finishing' options for the stitchy projects that I finish stitching this year:) Well, I guess I'll still have to try and do some of that as well.
Well, this means that I can 'bank' my first $3.00 towards new purchases, as part of the 2013 Stash Diet. I will keep that page (top of this page) updated with a list of finishes and how much money I have banked towards new purchases!! Since I wasn't able to use my gift cards for our LNS before the New Year, I will use that once I earn enough from finishing current projects. I'm hoping that by the time my birthday rolls around (May) that I'll have earned enough to spend the full amount on my gift cards ($80), but that will mean lots of projects finished!!!
