Smiling Elf Cross Stitch - Completed

I stitched a smiling elf today. It was a pretty quick project that I stitched in between chores so it probably would have only taken about two hours total to complete.

Merry Christmas Santa

Still on the Cross Stitch. Today's project is this cute little Santa telling everyone Merry Christmas. I worked three days this week and finished this one on Friday evening. I usually get about 50 minutes during my workday to stitch if I plan it right. Ten minutes before work, ten minutes on my morning and afternoon breaks, and around twenty minutes on my lunch break. At night I might can squeeze in thirty minutes to an hour of stitching.

Vacation Cross Stitch Finished Projects

Well, it was a busy time back home but I did manage to cross stitch a few ornaments.

First, we have the penguin sliding down the mountain. This one took me all day Saturday at the airport and on the plane and I finished it on Monday morning.

Second, I cross stitched a reindeer head with NOEL connecting the antlers. This was a pretty quick project which I finished on Tuesday.

Third, is Santa ice skating, I finished this one on the trip back home on Monday.

Somewhere in between, I finished a project I had started years ago on "Sand Island, AL" lighthouse, which I won't post here since it's not Christmas related.

It was a great week visiting with family and friends with a bonus of three completed cross stitched ornaments.
