First Finish of 2013

So I haven't posted an update in a bit...

Daughter had back surgery this month and while I thought I would get more stitching time because of that...I was wrong! :)  As you can imagine with 4 of us having Type 1 Diabetes we have had our fair share of doctor appointments this month to get prepared for appointments at Vanderbilt in April.

Here is my first finish of 2013.  The pattern came from Ellen Maurer-Stroh's free patterns online.  It is 6 something in the morning, not a usual waking hour for me, so I will let you do the google search online for it.  It is part of her Flowers of the Month.

January Carnations
I had thought about handstitching the word January on here...but I really dislike backstitching.  I said...Nah!!! LOL   But this is the January one finished.  A huge amount of mistakes but with Carnations and the colors used is very forgiving to the eye and turned out GREAT!!  Oh and I don't do borders much either.  If I did every border on every thing I stitched I probably wouldn't be stitching anymore.  I find them quite boring. I will frame it well with a nice mat.
Next up is the February Flowers.  


  1. They look lovely!
