Happy New year for 2014

I wanted to wish everybody a Happy New Year for 2014 and hope its a much better year for us all than 2013.  I also have a few finished I wasnt able to show you until after Christmas, they were a few gifts I made for my parents.
The first is a bag I made for my Mum, I enlarged the scissor fob chart for the front of the bag, stitched 2 over 2 instead of the 1 over 1 in the chart, came out just the right size.  The bag was quite easy to make, much easier than I expected, well after figuring it out, I also made a little coin purse to go with it.

This is a tractor I made for my Dad, its a Stony Creek design and really was fun to stitch even though it was a tractor, loved using all those reds.

My Mum hates sewing but every girl has to have a pretty sewing box dont they and I think she likes it.  This one is a variation of the Victoria Sampler Winter Box.

This is a little tree hanger I made for my Dad

and a little dragon fro my Mum.  Cute isnt he.

Have a very Happy New Year everybody and hopefully lots and lots of crafty things and stitching.

A Grumpy Cat, a Diary and a great giveaway.

Hope everybody who celebrates is looking forward to the big day, I know I am, my parents are coming for a visit, I am so excited..  I have stitched a few things but its going to have to wait as they are either gifts or Secret Santa's and I dont want to spoil anything, although I can show you this Grumpy little kitty, cute isnt he. He was a little Christmas Freebie I got from http://www.brookesbooks.com/

Cindy's is hosting a Giveaway, she will be celebrating her birthday on the 1st 2014 and is holding a giveaway for her special day.

I can also show you my December page for Needlework Masters, it was such great fun stitching a different page each month, I will miss it next year.  The photo below is my book complete, its a bit over stuffed but I am really proud of it.
