That Grey Area

I hope everyone had a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. So now we have entered what I have decided to call "the grey area", it's that time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. We've had Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber what's next? I don't know about you but I have been stitching away.  Here are my updates: First up is "Leilani the Hula Dancer" I got a lot more work done on her, I really like beading as I go. It all comes alive and when I finish, I'm done.
"Game of Thones Houses &Banners" is next and I finished the banner I showed in my last post. 
Six down with three more to go.  Next I worked on my Hogwarts Crest, I started doing some of the back stitch, I love the snake so far.
I am getting close to a finish on Holy, Holy, she needs her border. Who knows maybe before Christmas.

 I do have one new start, it is "Earthly Treasures" from Plum Street Samplers. I'm stitching it on 18ct Ivory aida, I'm not crazy about the border on this one so my plan is to leave it off.
Last but not least I wanted to share a project by my friend Irene's husband Joseph.  First of all, he stitched this beautiful carousel horse on the door. Then he did all of the wood working on this fantastic cabinet with the spinning carousel on the top. Lastly he picked out the lovely carousel crystal candy dish that is tucked inside all by himself.

This is one very talented man. Congratulations to Joseph for a gorgeous finished project.
That is about all for today, it's time for me to make some wonderful little xxs.

Beautiful stitching Minnie, you really have some lovely projects on the go at the moment. Leilani is very pretty and I like the Harry Potter one too. Your friend's husband is so talented!
