Productive weekend

I got a ton done over the weekend. First off I finished stitching Toy Shop Sign from CHS and did the finishing work. So cute! I did it on the recommended 36 count Lakeside Linen using the DMC conversion.
Next I stitched the above design (I can't remember the name) from Erica Michaels using the recommended 40 count Lakeside Linen and assorted Crescent Colors cotton floss. And even did the finishing. :-) And I even found time to stitch one more. This is Snowflake Heart from Wild Heart Designs from last years JCS Ornament issue.

This is a photo of how the tree is currently looking. Much fuller from last year! I still have to finish off the other two ornaments I stitched from last week plus the one above but I have met my goal of 12 ornaments this year. :-) I need to quilt myself a little tree skirt to finish off the look but I'm very happy with it this year. Oh, and I need a star. :-)

Everything looks great! Love the finishing. You get more done than anyone I know. With Christmas, I have not stitched in over a week. It is making me a little crazy. I have to finish my chain maille gift before I can start stitching.
