Not enough time to stitch!

After enjoying a long weekend out of town, you would think many hours of stitching would have been accomplished. Well, let me tell you, not a stitch was stitched until I got home on Sunday night. Actually, that is quite depressing.  On the plus side, when I finally sat down to stitch, I started a new project. I'm working on "All the Way Down" from Ink Circles. (See picture below)

I have the first turtle done and many more to go. Since I stitched a baseball sampler for my son, this piece is for my daughter. I can't wait to finish it for her. Anyone else ready to start something new? Well, there are quite a few new designs on the way...check them out.

The new Frosty Forest design "Snowman's Cottage" is  too cute, although it does make me cold (burrrrrr). The "Be My Valentine" design is a perfect Valentine gift.

The newest addition to the Calendar Girls would also make a cute Valentine's gift. I love her skirt with the hearts.

The final part in the Winds of Grace series is coming and so is another installment in the Ten X the Fun series. It really is a fun series. Those roosters are too funny!

Of course my favorite of these is the "Let's Cross Stitch". Check out the butterfly's's scissors. Too cute. Might be my next project after I finish the turtles.

The Owl Birth Sampler is adorable. I may have to put that in my stash to do for grandchildren (many, many, years from now).

Perfect piece for the avid bass fisherman. My husband will love this one but since I have already stitched him a bass picture this will have to go to the end of my stitching list (he may never see this done:)
