WIPocalypse Update #1

Not much stitching done so far this year. At least not as much as I would like! My new start for 2012 was Itty Bitty's by Keslyn. I was able to get one block finished!!

My 2011 Finishes

For the past several years, I have been stitching the Shepherd's Bush Christmas Stockings for my grandchildren. This year I got them all done and with the help of my friend, Eleanor, got them finished finished AND shipped off to their new homes. I am so happy with they way they turned out! Santa had fun filling them too!
