Pink and Sparkly

Hi friends! I forgot to share this little finish with you. It is a freebie from our friend Palkó. I stitched this one over one on 25ct white evenweave using the sparkly, pink Madeira floss I received from June. ♥
Here are my December pieces on display. This picture is awful. Sorry. It was snowy and overcast and I had lights on, but the picture still is blurry. I think you kind of get the idea.

I finished reading book number two in the Maisie Dobbs series a while ago. I truly enjoyed it very much. 
 Birds of a Feather (The Second Maisie Dobbs Mystery)
Jacqueline Winspear’s marvelous debut, Maisie Dobbs, won her fans from around the world and raised her intuitive, intelligent, and resourceful heroine to the ranks of literature’s favorite sleuths. Birds of a Feather, its follow-up, finds psychologist and private investigator Maisie Dobbs on another dangerously intriguing adventure in London “between the wars.” It is the spring of 1930, and Maisie has been hired to find a runaway heiress. But what seems a simple case at the outset soon becomes increasingly complicated when three of the heiress’s old friends are found dead. Is there a connection between the woman’s mysterious disappearance and the murders? Who would want to kill three seemingly respectable young women? As Maisie investigates, she discovers that the answers lie in the unforgettable agony of the Great War.

 I have almost completed the Christmas ornament for my young Ukrainian friend. It is filled with specialty stitches. I did not realize how long this would take me! Oh well. It is going to be a very nice gift. Then on to Brian's Christmas ornament.

I hope you have a beautiful weekend my friends! I would like to wish you a Blessed, Happy New Year! Thank you for stopping by.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Such pretty pieces in your December cubby, Vickie! I'm glad you have a bit longer to finish Brian's ornament. I was trying to do a last minute one for my son, but didn't finish, so I will save it for next year :)

Wishing you every happiness in 2017 (and far fewer headaches!!).
