I decided to pick up one of my UFO's and put some stitches in it.

This one is Rocky Mountain Christmas by Marty Bell.

Here is a pic of before I picked it up to work on it.

Here it is as it stands now.... almost have one full page done.

Don't worry.... I will get back to Jesus Wept soon.

Some more finishes...

I was still in my finishing mood yesterday and I decided to finish these.

The pics show the front and the back of each ornament.

I was a finishing fool!!!

I have been having difficulty getting motivation to finish some items.
Yesterday, I found that motivation and was up until 10:30PM finishing.
I just did not want to go to bed without having them finished.

I finished an apron for my sister. (was supposed to be finished for Thanksgiving but ran out of thread)

I made 4 bandana's for my youngest daughter for Christmas. (can you believe it the 13 year old only wanted bandana's)

I also finished my sister's frogs that I cross stitched into the tote bag she wanted. (click on the link to see the frogs up close.) Here is the tote bag.
