The “O” is Finished!

Hello my blogging friends.  Last night I finished the letter “O” in my Joy piece and she turned out quite cute 🙂

completed-o

I wish I could capture the true color of the fabric, but I am just not able to.  I just love the little peppermint buttons.  They really make it feel Christmasy 🙂

So now I am on to the Y which I put a few stitches in last night.

This photo probably shows the Sage fabric in how looks in person.  More green than the gray in the above photos.  Some day, I will get some sun and hopefully take some better photos.  In case you are just tuning in to this project, I am stitching Nora Corbett’s Fariy Letters on 16ct Aida Sage from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie and I am using a conversion from The Rocking Horse.  So what are you stitching these days?

Today is my birthday, so I am heading out to treat myself to a Tim Horton’s Cappuccino, which I used to drink everyday, but quit on December 7.  I had one yesterday and have only had one other since.  But since today is my special day, I am going to treat myself.  Have a fabulous day and go stitch something!

  1. Happy Birthday, may it be a wonderful and blessed day.
    Your “O” turned out just as stunning. I love the green fabric, and I think it is just perfect for these.
    Have a great day, enjoy and have fun.

      1. So glad you enjoyed the day. 🙂
        I love this project. So perfect, as you can put them up and take them down each season and never get bored with them. I am sure they will be even prettier once framed.

    1. They really are quick stitches, Marilyn. I am enjoying them and it is nice to have a finish in a short amount of time. The J and O took about 11 days each. I am hoping the Y will go as quick so I can get them in for framing 🙂 I will post a progress photo soon. Thank you for visiting 🙂

  2. Happy birthday! I hope you enjoy your delicious drink. 🙂 The stitching looks so beautiful, as it always does. You are amazingly patient. I hope you get some sun for your birthday. It seems ages since we last saw it…

    1. Thank you so much ❤ I did enjoy the cappuccino and am refraining from going to get another today 😉 Don't want to get back into that habit. Thank you for your sweet comments about my stitching. I am not really a patient person, but when it comes to my stitching I guess I am. Maybe I am just determined. No sun for my birthday. And none today either. Really getting tired of seeing gloomy gray this winter. I can see why it sends some people into depression. I hope the sun shows up in your neck of the woods soon, too. We need sunshine 🙂

      1. I thought we were getting some today – the sun came out in time to set last night, but today is once again gray and gloomy! Good for you kicking the cappuccino habit – it is hard! I understand the difference between patient and determined. People say I knit so fast – I don’t. I knit so much. it accomplishes the same thing but it isn’t the same thing. 🙂

      2. 🙂 I had to switch to decaf las tsummer – that was hard. Then I did whole 30 and had to give up allteh coffee because of no sugar or cream. I am back to decaf, but still no sugar. Amazing when I used to like a little coffee with my cream and sugar. 🙂 It is a tough habit to get out of, I hope you are successful in beating it!

      3. I know what you mean. I went to decaf about 20 years ago. Funny how the cappuccino’s didn’t bother me but a cup of regular gives me chest pains. I used to have a little coffee with my cream and sugar also. Not it’s just 2 sugars and some sugar free hazelnut creamer. I don’t think I could drink coffee without sugar. I will try it tomorrow and see, but I can just see my face now 😛 LOL

    1. Thank you, Christine ❤ I had a nice day. I can't wait to get the "Y" done so I can get to the Rocking Horse and have them frame all the letters together. I am stitching as fast as I can 😉 Thank you for your sweet comments and for stopping by my little old blog 🙂

  3. Belated happy birthday. The ‘O’ is lovely and I am sure that the ‘Y’ will be too. Don’t know how but I missed your ‘J’ in case you have done it already. You are such a talented stitcher! I have just finished a piece I have been working on for almost 20 years! I am proud I got it finished though as it will make a wonderful picture – now just to find the right frame. Happy Stitching Ginny! 🙂

    1. Thank you for the Birthday wishes. I am working on the Y just as fast as I can. I should post and update this week. I did finish the J. Scroll back through my posts. I believe I finished it in early January. Thank you for your sweet comments and continuing to visit my blog 🙂 I would love to see what you have finished after 20 years! You must be over the moon happy!
