Christmas/Winter Catch Up: No. 2

I finished stitching "Bless the Baby" for my new little cousin-in-law, Henry. I matched the colors to the baby's nursery and have some cute fabric to make it into a little pillow - this may be my weekend project.

I also started CCN's "Winter Welcome" but it does not seem to be bringing the snow to Philadelphia!

I have an overwhelming amount of stash that I am eager to dive into, but I still have about 5 or 6 Wips lingering around and really want to discipline myself to finish those before I make any new starts. I did finish Tanya's wonderful "Hope Perches" tonight - it will be a birthday gift for an Emily Dickinson-loving girlfriend. I'll share that in a few days but for now I'm off to bed!

I hope your 2008 is off to a wonderful start.

Hi Rachel!

It's so good to hear from you again. You must have been very busy.

I love your Santas and ornaments in your previous post. They are beautiful! And, it looks like you are off to a good start for 2008.

I hope you had a nice holiday season, and I hope 2008 brings you everything your heart desires!

Rachel, There's something so serene and good about your blog. It was a pleasure to stop by tonight. I was glad you thought about that dear Secret Santa. Wasn't she amazing to think of all of us this year!? And, I love your stitching pieces. Can't wait to see your "Hope.."

Hi Rachel,
So glad you updated your blog - I was thrilled to click into it and see a current post! Life does get busy ~ always interfers with our stitching, doesn't it? Your stitching is lovely and the color you used in the lettering for BLESS THIS BABY is wonderful!!

Very nice job on the Bless the Baby and Winter Welcome. I too just finished the Winter Welcome but sent it off as an exchange.
My son just headed back to school (Villanova)~ It makes me wish I lived in Philadelphia! :)

Winter Welcome is a favorite of mine. I too am trying to finish up some WIPs before I go stash diving for new stuff to start. The baby sampler is beautiful - I love the colors.
