Christmasland is completed..




One more down, oh so many to go. I have been a bit slow the past week with my stitching. In my mind I was whining about not stitching fast enough and would get discouraged and just not stitch. Fortunately, I broke through my own brattiness and finished RTRD Christmasland yesterday afternoon. I just love this piece. I'm not sure if the fabric choice was the best since the white doesn't stand out as much as I like, but I do like the sparkly aspect. It is pretty!!


I also pulled out one of my new patterns from last months spending spree. This is Blackbird Designs Bluebird. I used a piece of 40 ct. linen left over from one of the Jenny Bean samplers. I also used thread I had purchased from Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe. It is a bit lighter than what the pattern calls for, but I like the look. I will finish this as a pin pillow.

It is so nice to finish some of these patterns, but I have so many more to do. AND, I stopped by Shakespeare's Peddler yesterday. Several new patterns arrived plus her store is chock full of other wonderful projects. Thankfully, I maintained self control and didn't purchase anything (this time). Next month, though, boy do I have some spending plans...

I love your Christmasland! It's wonderful. And love the bluebird piece too - I want to make mine into a pin keep whenever I finally get around to stitching it.

Love it love it. Where did you find that self control? I'd like some of that. I'm using the avoidance technique.
