1st IHSW of 2014

I didn't do as much stitching as I had planned, I worked on my January cake from Brooke Books Publications stitched on 18 ct off white Aida with DCM floss. I finished the stitching and started adding the beads.
I finished stitching the first in a new series from Little House Needleworks called Calendar Girls. Here is my January.
She hasn't been pressed that why she's standing a little lopsided. I'm thinking of making the series into small pillows or flat ornaments. Last night I started this little design from Joan Elliott's Southwest Stitches leaflet, it's called Native Dress.

This one is also from the same leaflet by Joan Elliott and it is called the Pottery Maker.
They are all so colorful and easy to stitch, this one was done between this post and my last. Well back I go to making those little xxs. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi, Minnie! Just checking in. Your work is beautiful. I haven't seen the Calendar Girls series but am going to look into it. I can't seem to get back into stitching -- been off of it for a while -- but hopefully that won't last long! Keep stitching and have a wonderful day!

Thank you all for the wonderful comments and compliments. I try to acknowledge each one personally, but there are a few of you who have no-reply emails so I can't so here to you. :-)
