An Early Finish!

Yesterday was a good day! Jan 1st and I have a finish. I got lucky -- as you all know I have been working on this one since Halloween.

Thine is the Trick and the Treat
by Prairie Moon
Splendor Silk
28ct Cashel linen
Here's my next WIP to be picked up - I started this last year and then found Grace. It's been sitting for months waiting for me. It's time... 
Colorful Sky
by Mystic Stitch
 DMC floss on 14ct Aida
And this is the newest start - I thought it would be a quick finish. Umm, wrong! I don't know what the linen is beyond a 28ct. It feels like a canvas. I have never seen a fabric that is easier to stitch through a dirty hole than a clean one. Does anyone know what type fabric this is? I would like to avoid it if given the chance!

Olde Crow
by The Stitcherhood
DMC floss
unknown 28ct linen
Well, I figure most of us will return to work tomorrow after a few days off. I have decided (after days of denial) to call the doctor. This cough is not getting better and I am exhausted from it.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and are well rested!

Love that finish Girl, now I can't wait to see it on the wall. Good for you making the Dr. appointment but what are you going to do when he says you can't go to work because you are contagious? Gee, you may just have to stay home and stitch... Feel Better and I hear that stitching makes anyone feel better so you now know why I don't get sick...........
As always
