More finishes for day 20

 Today I thought I would try to get some organizing done before the weekend and somehow I started going through some of my cross stitch bags. I am going to Hobby Lobby tomorrow to have something framed and for some reason I started rummaging through my bags like a crazy person. These are just a few of the ones that I found completed and ready to be framed. This set is Twas the Night Before Christmas.
 I had not be cross stitching very long when my sisters and I each decided to stitch a set and then trade some so we would have each others work. Well. I don't know if they ever finished but these are the ones I did and they will be hanging this year for the first time. I have had them done for years.
 Sometimes when you stuff things in a bag you forget that you have them done and they get mixed in with other things and before long, well...not this year.The stockings have my girls names on them.
 I am sure if I look them over closely I will find things that I would change but they are finished and I am not working on them anymore. I hope that some day one of my children will want them in their home.
 The I found so many more this is another finished piece.
 And one I should have up right now.
 And another for the next holiday. Sorry for the wrinkles but remember they were in a bag.
 I even found some punch needle that I had finished a while back. I had just started to teach my Mom to punch needle before she got sick.
I actually had more to show you that were in the bag but there are so many I will wait for another day.
Do you believe we are on day 20....? Amazing. So what are you working on?

Oh my goodness, all the creations are unbelievable. I so love the cross stitch and punch needle. These are two crafts I have on my list to learn to do this winter. I have started a small cross stitch but am wondering if I have the patience for it and last night bought a small kit from Joanne's to see if I will like punch needle before I sink a lot of money into it. I so wish I was as good as you already. Love your work. Honey get those projects out of that bag and display them. They are beautiful.Thanks for sharing

Wow you sure have had busy little hands. I have been working on the same piece now for over a year. I guess quilting takes first on my priorty list.
