Sold stars, so more felt tree ornaments!

I really am trying to keep busy, and actually get some of those dreaded FINISHES!!  Lol, why is the last step always the hardest?  I sold the star pair from this set, on etsy, so now I made the trees.  These are turning out pretty nicely, so I am pleased.  The other ornaments in the set (Bucilla Nordic Santa) are now different, and a bit more challenging; I've been working on them, but slowly.  So these are now listed, on ebay and etsy .  I did buy more of the kits, so I can still re-make all of them, in pairs, at least one more time.

This is mostly the last week for a real XMAS kick. I have several Christmas things, but the pressure will be off, to finish or make at least anything new.  If I get them done, I might list them, otherwise, if I feel like I can at least let them sit, I will.  I don't know that I will have that luxury, but at least January, perhaps March, before I put new items like these up.  ---IF my other new non holiday things are doing well.  (But then again, there is always stuff now to do for Halloween!!  ha)

Four Seasons Summer cross stitch

This is another of the Four Seasons finished. Summer is also 1x1, 2x1 and some backstitching on white 18ct. From the cross stitch kit of tiny 3x5" set by Vervaco.  Ebay and Etsy  listing of it.

That and everything I need to catch up on is at least keeping me busy, distracted from the news, the dreary weather, and all these deadlines that seem to be creeping up on me.

Four Seasons Spring Cross Stitch, Computer KO

Yay, my computer is back up!  Two weeks of weirdness and waiting for parts in the mail, etc.  Whew.  I was really starting to sweat that much down time.  Looks like I will be buying a new computer soon.  There wasn't much harm done in being down that long, but I can't have that happen again.

At least I got some good stitching time in.  This one is from a Vervaco kit, called Four Seasons.  This is the Spring. (2x1, 1x1 and backstitching on 18ct) For now, I will offer them individually, but I may put them together as a set, once I have stitched them all.  These are tiny, about 3x5".  Ebay and Etsy  both have it up.  I will be adding the other seasons as I get them done, hopefully soon.

****Well, funny(not funny), I was in the middle of this post, when the computer died.  The hard drive gave out, and not quite sure anything is recoverable.  Ouch.  I have been offline the better part of another two weeks or more.  I did get a bit more stitching time in, and some beading, so I will post more finishes, etc. as I get this new computer figured out a bit.
