A few Hob Nobb finishes

Well...thank God it's a new week. This one hasn't started off great, but hopefully it will get better as it goes along. Last week was quite horrid! If you've never had a migraine headache, I hope you never have one. But, if you can understand. I had a migraine for 5 straight days! I finally got a little relief this weekend, but I could still feel it threatening in the back of my head.

Here are 3 Hob Nobb pieces that I recently finished. None are framed yet.

Name: December

Threads: GAST - Dried Thyme (leaves), Seaweed (vine), Picket Fence and Holly Berry (candy cane) WDW - Curry (star)

Beads: Petite Mill Hill beads (42043) used for berries instead of stitches

Fabric: Picture This Plus 28 ct. Willow

Name: July

Threads: GAST - Midnight (star) & Tarnished Gold (vine)

Beads: Petite Mill Hill beads (42043) used for berries instead of stitches

Fabric: White Birch 16 ct Heatherfield by Wichelt

Name: November

Threads used: GAST - Pumpkins - Fragrant Cloves & Harvest Moon, leaves - Copper, Gold Leaf, Tarnished Gold, Avocado & Bittersweet, outline of pumpkin & stem - Gingersnap, vine - Sarsparilla

Beads: Petite Mill Hill Beads (42028) used for random stitches (a few extra added at bottom)

Fabric: Camel 16 ct Heatherfield by Witchelt

NOTE: Did not stitch border on any of the pieces.

Oops! I did not realize I forgot to put date on July or November. Will have to add that.

It's nice to get a few things accomplished stitching wise recently. With headaches last week I did absolutely no stitching! All my other projects are just too big or time consuming to get accomplished/completed right now. Hopefully soon! That train still needs tons of work!
