A couple of needlework projects finished!

I have a long list of projects in various stages of completion. I’m been surprised at how much needlework I’ve been able to get done since Evan’s birth. He goes to bed around 7 p.m., and some nights I have the energy to stitch for an hour or two. I completed the stocking cuff for his stocking as well as his cousin Sheridan, so we will have a complete set of family stockings this Christmas!

I have been working on a whole series of very cool Glitz and Glamour patterns. I have nine currently being framed, the two shown here just completed (Kunzite and Turquoise) and one more (Morganite) to do. (But I see from her website that there are several more I need to do — Onyx, Carnelian, Garnet, Opal, Harlequin Opal and Tourmaline!

I love that these use a variety of fibers and stitches, so I’m always doing something new. I also love the effect created by the different shades of the same color.

When the framing is done, I think I’ll be hanging these in my new office at work.
