Two Down...

...ten to go. I finished Two Turtle Doves over the weekend.


I still haven't gotten to the fabric store to get the backing fabric. I have some that will work but not enough for all 12 ornaments and I want them all finished the same. It can wait, I'm in no hurry anyway. I still have ten more to stitch, after all!


I am really excited though. I often go to the city to shop at Jo Ann's for fabric. The only stores in Stillwater for fabrics are Walmart, Hobby Lobby and a couple of very small quilting stores. I won't have to drive to shop at Jo Ann's much longer ~ one is coming here and it's going to be in the very same shopping center I work in. I can walk right over after picking up my paycheck!!! If I remember correctly it will open early next year. I can't wait.

If you have entered my blogoversary giveaway don't forget to leave a comment on this post too for another entry!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

These are going to be adorable! I love the 12 Days of Christmas... especially when it's sung by the Muppets. : ) LOL!

They are so cute. I'm looking forward to seeing them all finished.

Well I'm not commenting just to get another entry...I am commenting because I LOVE the turtle doves! I am dying to start stitching mine! WOO HOOO!

Joysze said...

CUTE!!!! Love them. :D

Mindi said...

Both of those are so adorable. I was just looking for my chart, and its decided to go missing for now.

Linda said...

Seeing your 12 days makes me so want to work on mine - but I have way way to many that I'm trying to work on now.
Great job. You'll have done in no time.
Hey, send JoAnns my way.

Parsley said...

Love it! You are making many of us want to stitch these up now.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I love the 12 Days song too. I have the Joan Elliott one to stitch.

Kaisievic said...

I love the two that you have stitched already. Who is the designer? Really lovely.

Hugs, Kaye xoxox

Rachel said...

Those are really cute! I am looking forward to seeing them all done. :) YAY for JoAnn's coming soon!! I don't know what I would do without mine. It's a half hour away, the next closest craft store is an hour and half away, and my LNS is two and a half hours away!! The joys of living in the middle of nowhere, lol.

Carolyn said...

Both of your finishes look great. Only 10 more to go? You are so lucky to be getting a Joann's next to your work.

valerie said...

Looking great! Being that close to Joann's might be dangerous to your pocketbook!

CalamityJr said...

Two turtle doves are so pretty. This is going to be a fun set!

Claudette497 said...

Maybe you should only go over there before you pick up your paycheck, lol. Cute finishes.

Teresa said...

They are looking good. Hope they built your Joann's real fast. I wish I had an Hobby Lobby.

Theresa said...

Two looks great!!!! how exciting it is that you will have a JoAnn near by!!!! But that might mean serious damage to your purse in the future!!! ^^

Shari said...

woohoo on #2.....they are gorgeous!! I just finished the last fall piece that I was planning, so now I am going to start ornaments....what fabric are you using? It sure looks like what I have planned for mine!

Kate said...

They are really nice. Looking forward to the other 10.

GoldenAngelsWorks said...

Beautiful work!

P.J. said...

TWO cute!

Nancy said...

Your stitching looks great! JoAnn's in the same place as where I work would be very detrimental to my paycheck. Good luck with that! HahHAha So glad that one is coming to your area though.

stitcher mom said...

The ornaments are looking good. I may have to add them to my stash.

Pamela said...

You are on a roll! Great stitching and LOVE the pattern.

Susan said...

Love the finishes. Can't wait to see the finished finished pieces.

Hmmm, a Jo-Ann's right near your work? Maybe you could just have work direct deposit your check to them? 8-)

Lynn said...

Great finishes! I'm really enjoying these designs.
Having a JoAnns that close to me could be dangerous!! Things are bad enough when I have to drive an hour. I'd be in heaven if I had one in my community!

The Inspired Stitcher said...

They look great! I can't wait to see the next one. I know it will be just as cute as these two.

So cute!

Charity C. said...

Your 12 days of Christmas is coming along beautifully! I think I might do them myself as I was thinking maybe I could get a little tree on which to hang upon these twelve little ornies! I think it would look so cute!

Bekca said...

Ooh, that's going to be dangerous, having a stitching shop so close by LOL
Loving your ornaments so far, looking forward to seeing the next one. Best wishes.

Vicky L said...

They are coming out great. I love the fabric too!
