A Challenge Finish & Another Start

I have joined the Ladies at 2012 WIP Challenge on Facebook ~ it does what it says on the tin ~ a challenge to clear as many of your WIP's during the next 12 months.  I'm hoping to work my way through the odd one or two!  I've (partially) made a list of my WIP's which I am sure will in itself be a work in progress ~ finish a few, add a few more!
This is Ho Ho Ho in a Row by L*K, stitched on 32ct (powder) blue evenweave with the recommended threads.  It's a bit of a cheat really as I only started this on 29 December, it was technically still a WIP.  I've loved stitching this and I plan to make a pillow finish with it, I already have a charm pack of fabric that will be used.  Apologies for the size of the picture - Blogger wouldn't play nicely and allow me to size AND place it where I wanted it to go!

I've also joined the Christmas Ornaments All Year Round blog to try and keep up with stitching a minimum of 12 ornaments this year.  The blog has a planned theme each month and January's theme is Santa Claus ~ this is mine ~ Wee Santa 2005 from Heart in Hand.  I'm stitching on 32ct linen with the recommended GAST & WDW threads.  Apart from the linen being overly stiff this is another lovely stitch, and hopefully it won't be too long before it's finished. 
I'm looking forward to Tuesday Stitching Group tonight, not sure whether I'll work on my Santa or Simply Joys by LHN.
