Many little things 

Ahh…it’s the first week of January and can I already be off track? Or am I enjoying an extended vacation and just living by my whims? That’s it. I’ll get serious next week! My whims have me doing 3 ornaments:

First, Christmas Blessings is coming along nicely.

Next up is a Mill Hill kit (you know how I love them) to make a family initial. It seemed like it would be a snap. It is. It’s good for doing in those couple minute moments I find throughout the day-I can do it standing up even. But I just started today so there’s not much to see yet.

Finally for the Christmas Ornament SAL January theme, I picked out Prairie Schooler’s Partridge from 2005 JCS.

I am living  on the edge with my margins of 1/2″, barely enough for finishing. It is measured and centered very carefully-it will work out, but whew-I’m stitching in hand due to the size, which is not my favorite. Why so small? I had a linen scrap the perfect color and I didn’t want to waste it.
