Me: O_o ....it 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!

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
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.
