Finally, a Fini!

Hello there, dear blogging friends, it has been longer then I would have liked since my last post. But I have been so caught up with work and family, haven't hardly had the chance to check out your blogs even.

If you haven't been to my design blog Tree of Life Samplings, I wanted to show you my latest finish, the second in the Emma Rose Series, Emma Rose Christmas:



 Definitely my personal stitching time has been at a minimum, since I had to stitch the above and change several things as I was stitching. But I did get some time afterwards to finish up Blackbird Designs Sunflower House. Sorry if these pics are out of order, thanks to Blogger messing with me. The one picture I took of the entire project, turned out horribly and way too dark. It was a fun stitch, can't wait to get it framed now.













Currently finishing up an exchange piece, so can't show that until much later! Really busy with working on new designs, hopefully to have released for the Nashville Market in February. It does take awhile to put a design all together, from start to finish and with Thanksgiving and Christmas upon us, the time will go swiftly, I am sure!

Thanks for visiting, hoping to have some time to visit you in the next few days. Thanks also for taking the time to comment, you are all the best!!

 Thankful today for my son in law, Josh, for being such a wonderful husband to my daughter and a super father to my two granddaughters. 

Much Love, Jan

Love your newest design and your Sunflower House is so pretty. I am a huge sunflower fan so this one may have to creep into my "to-be-stitched" pile very soon :)
