Been continuing the stitching spree. I found this one on and plan to do more from that site. I'm not sure how I'm going to finish this one off. While stitching the outline of the castle DH walked by and said "Hey, you should make that Mario's castle!"
Me: O_o is

Wine a bit by Post Stitches. I started this on Sunday night and finished it Tuesday night. A new world record for me! I really thought this would take longer and didn't have anything ready to start next. This will be a Christmas present for my mother-in-law and I'll be attempting to frame it myself.
I was going to start a stocking next but I don't really like the linen I was given for it. I have fabric for some pattens but no floss and floss for some but no fabric. Guess it's time to dig out a UFO!

Finishes feel good

This one is a freebie from here. I made it for DH to put on his desk at work. He loves his coffee. Stitched on blue 14ct aida

Before finishing


Another freebie but I have no clue where I found it, it's been saved on my computer for over a year. This one is for myself which doesn't happen too often! Stitched on the same blue aida.

And my current wip. I was asked to stitch this Irish blessing by someone who's mother recently passed away. Stitched on 25ct antique white lugana. I was planning on using 28ct but apparently I had a total brain fart while buying the fabric and didn't realize it until the next day. The lettering is 2 over 2. Underneath will be a celtic knot (freebie from Ink Circles) stitched 1 over 1.
