My Stitching Week in Review

I'm pleased to report that I've had a pretty good week with my current stitching projects.  I've had 2 finishes, a good bit of progress on some other things.  One pretty good-sized froggy came a courtin'. 

I finished the Pumpkin Farm block on Anniversaries of the Heart.  Now, when I say I've finished these blocks, and you're thinking you see a lot of bare spots, that's because I'm leaving most of the personalization until the end.  I know I will probably hate myself for putting it off.

Here is Pumpkin Farm:
Next is a finish of one of the Stacy Nash Girls' Club kits from Country Sampler, "To My Sweet Pinkeep".  I love these kits!  I have been a member of the club since the beginning, it's now in year 4.

Next is a picture of the Ghost and Mrs. Muir block of Shores of Hawk Run Hollow.   I was filling in the grass, when I realized the boat on the right was one row too low, so I had to rip out and re-do.
Just need to stitch the bricks and backstitch the windows and door, and this block will be done.  Plan to have this done this week!
Next is the wee bit of progress I've made on Margaret Cottam.  I was not having a lot of fun with the border at first, but it's growing on me.  This piece is really slow-going for me, I don't know why.  And, am I not presumptious, stitching the 2012 in the corner?

Last is a shot of the Christmas ornament I'm currently working on.  My goal is one per month.  This is definitely an oldie but a goody, pulled out from the deepest, darkest recesses of my UFOs.  It's a Mirabilia ornament from an old JCS ornament issue, 2000, I think. With the size, and all the color changes, I think you can see why I've taken so long to finish!
Lastly, a few shots of my little year-round tree, all decked out for Saint Patrick's Day.

That's about all for now.  I probably won't post again before Saint Patrick's Day, so I hope you enjoy!  Don't drink to much green beer!
