Another January finish..i

Man, I am on a roll this month. Last night, while watching The Office, I finished Sharon's Christmas Fairy. Sharon, my sister, started this project a while ago, but had some issues with seeing the fabric. She has whined and whined about for so long and finally convinced me to finish it for her. She had stitched everything but the wings, head, hands, and tree. So I really didn't have too much to do. The wings were the most frustrating. Once I completed that, the rest just took me a few hours. The beading was easy, too. So, I guess I shouldn't complain. I called Sharon as soon as I finished and she is very excited. One more project bites the dust!!

The rest of the evening, I worked on another WIP that I have been putting off too long. I don't know what it is about this piece, but I was not enjoying it at all. Last night I finished the bee hive and now the rest should be quite easy. I hope to finish it this weekend. This was suppose to be a present for my younger sister, Bridget. I think I will frame it for her and give it to her as part of her very late birthday present. (If you are reading this, Bridget: Surprise!!)

I have been very fortunate this month to have so much time to stitch. It really feels good to check so many things off my list. Not a bad start to 2010.
