Can't get enough of Holiday Stitching

First, I would like to thank all of you who
took the time to visit TDIPT last week
for the December update.  
I am always humbled by your
support and patronage.
I got a few other pieces finished and
I love to post these for you to see.
* * * *
I've stitched 2 primitive heart pinkeeps.
The left is motifs from Blackbird 
Designs and the other is just a little
motif of mine.
They're stuffed with sawdust and 
backed with ticking and homespun.
* * * * 
Next is a freebie I stitched from Pineberry Lane that I found
on Patternmart.
When I saw it I was just so inspired that I had to stitch
it right away.  I think I copied it right down to the last 
detail, but I just love it so.
This is so prim.  I'm not sure if you can see
them well, but there are tiny little jingle bells
stitched to each corner.
Wendy is probably one of my most favorite 
designers and I'm sure many of you agree.
* * * *
I also stitched up a little reproduction fabric ditty bag
with a small hanging pinkeep.
I love using wool these days and added
wool holy and some of my French ribbon
I collect.
* * * *
I'm stitching a new Winter Sampler design.
 I have a feeling my friend Marianne from  
Midnight Stitching will be happy to hear this news.
I hope to have this done for release at the
beginning of the year.
Thank you again for your visits to my 
blog and enjoy this wonderful season.
