This is my pine cone snowman

This is my Santa with his chicken and pine cone.  I will look again for a picture of my other snowman

Lizzie Kate 6 Fat Men have been put on hold.  I have used up all of some of my threads.  I have stitched it all that I have thread for and I have ordered the thread.  It shipped on Tuesday but I don't know how long it will take to get here.  In the mean time I have been working on the 2015 Mill Hill designs.  2014 Mill Hill did 6 Jim Shore Santas.  This past year they did three Jim Shore snowmen and three Jim Shore Santas  I have all the snowmen finished and one santa These are two of the snowmen,  I can not find the pictures of the rest of them  I will go look and come back and post a picture of them.

My next project for completion will be my Lizzie Kate 6 Fat Men design.
I finished Benjamin.  I had a 14 hour marathon of stitching yesterday and ended up with a touch of vertigo this morning.  No more stitching that long with out getting up and moving around some to keep my head cleared

I finished Luke around 3 pm and started on Benjamin

I finished Gloria this morning around 10 am and started on Luke

This piece is finished.  I need to press it really good and sew on some buttons.  This piece
came with a button package.  Like there are some snow and bird buttons that goes on each
block and some in the design in the middle of all the blocks. It feels so good to finish theses
pieces and put them in my finished box. 

this is my next project to finish.  The Mill Hill Trilogy is finished except for beading.  I will work on these until they are finished.  I stitched these back in early 2015 while Mike was visiting his brother and nephew at a BBQ cookoff in New Orleans.  There is so many things that I have started and not finished for some reason or another.  I brought a bunch of things like this to put the finishing stitching on so that when I get home I can do the final finish work on all these projects.

Each year, Mill Hill comes out with six little Christmas ornaments or pins or magnets.  I never use the magnets or pins.  The gingerbread house was one of them and this is the second one.  This past year I only purchased three of them because I did not like them all.

Well I got a little side tracked, as usual.  That is why I never get anything finished.  I lose my focus and I have way too many little projects laying around calling my name.  I am away from home and did not bring my sewing machine and I sit and think of so many things that I could do if I just had my sewing machine.  The only problem is that we are maxed out on the amount of weight that our truck will pull in the camper.
This is what I have been working on for the past two days.  The first one I did was a Mill Hill Seasonal Window Pane that I found in all the stuff I packed in here to bring with me.
 I also found one of my new Mill Hill ornament kits
Neither one of these had been started previously.  They are new ones.  Now
this morning I have gone back to my Lizzie Kate Snow Belles.  I promise to
try to focus better.
