Another amazing incredible blog post! What a nice gift from Sharon! You really have a lot done on Fall Welcome and Santa #5. I better catch up!

Your Turtle Trot update is fantastic! You got so much done on every design all year long. Keep those needles flying for another stitchy year!

I think Happy Camper will be your next finish.

Such stunning progress, wow!
You have so many starts that I was wondering how you organise/keep them when you are not stitching on them to keep them together and neat?

Love all your WIPS for 2014. I have some of them in my to do stash. I have also joined the 2014 Turtle Trot. It is fun to stitch along side other stitchers.

I'm glad you liked your little package! The trouble with living so far away is that you were almost better before it

I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with Do Not Disturb before it goes on to the next stitcher!
