God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.
--Wilda English

Stitching Finishes 2014

In addition to the stitching finishes shown on my Christmas Exchanges & Gifts from Me to Others - 2014 page, I completed these stitching finishes in 2014.  These are the ones I kept for myself & there's maybe a regular gift or two in the mix.  If my math is correct, I stitched a total of 51 ornaments & 7 or 8 small samplers or pillows in 2014.

I also completed two punch needle projects & three knitting projects, but this is a page for stitching finishes so I will not include them here   : )
