December 31

As this is the last day of the year I wanted to share updates of my progresses.

I started a stitch-a-long with my friend Sveina. We both fell in love with Hannah Lynn´s Punch of color girl 12. Here is how far I´ve got. I was really aiming to finished her eye but unfortunately I didn´t make it 😦 However her eyelashes are there 🙂

I also want to show you my jar of ort´s from 2016. I only started collecting my ort´s in May after we moved into our new house. Pretty good collection though for only 8 months 🙂

Two finishes

I have two finishes to show you and little gift I got from my secret Santa at work.

First of all I finished another Magic Doll design. I really love this cute dolls. I have to say though that the back stitch is a bit crazy and seem to take forever. But the outcome is all worth it.

And here she is without the back stitch. The back stitch really completes the piece.

I have another small finish. It´s Soda pattern piece I started a long time ago and I have been picking it up every now and then. It´s a set of 8 small houses and I finally finished the second house.
