The arrows are cool, Sheila! Are you expecting the baby will grow to become an archer? silly Is Bass truly his name or your nickname for him? It's so unusual.

Nancy,  the last name is Bass.  Katie is decorating with an arrow theme, using mint and gray.   They decided this time to not know if it was going to be a boy or girl. 

 and  Kooper Bass was born at 0538 this morning!!   My son swears it was the change in the barametric pressure since we got some rain starting early this morning.   Going to Greeley this morning to give him a squeeze before I go to work!

These are both small finishes. The Anna's Hummingbird is approx 12 x 14". The Attic Windows hanging with the four birds is 30 x 36". I made a lot of changes to it both in the piecing and the in the stitching designs after I thought it was finished so I am twice as happy to have it tacked to the wall. 

Green Throw is 43 x 49". I used all the larger pieces of the fabric left after I finished the two Posy blocks and several different greens. This was strictly a stash buster and will be donated. I am now making Card Trick blocks to use the last of this floral print.

You are so productive, V! Are these for your job at Joann's? I might steal the idea for the tic-tac-toe to make for my young grand-nephews. The tree is cool with its raggedy edges.

Veronica, cute projects!  I am super drawn to the camper one!  I love the little vintage trailers.

Agnes, your finishes are beautiful!  You certainly made the most of your posy fabric!   Your cross stitch wall hangings are so pretty.

I have a finish to add. A Christmas table runner, 67”x20”. It is made using a border fabric and a 60 degree triangle ruler. It was fabric in my stash that needed to be sewn up and put to use. ;-)

Agnes, such nicely done counted cross stitch! You must have the eyes of an eagle and the patience of a saint! I like your floral quilt, too! Perfect way to use up some greens!

Chris, that's a perfect use for border fabric. After reading "60 degree ruler" and then flipping over to look at the picture, I thought you must have pieced all those trees. Then I reread your description. LOL

For over ten years of no cross stitching because I couldn't see worth beans I just continued with my fairly regular every two years vision test. I moved to the end of the road and used the optometrist in town when I realized that I could see things much more clearly than I had through four different optometrists and vision screenings. I finally had a correct test. It doesn't hurt that I went from 14 count (stitches to the inch) to 11 count Aida fabric and have learned to rely on my printer to enlarge the charts. I no longer need the patience of a saint. Sometimes remote living has its blessings.

Thank you, Nancy, Sharon and Dorian for your comments.

Thank you, ladies!

Yes, Nancy, these last little projects are samples for JoAnn.  I also did a couple quilt blocks for them this month.  Glad they're all done.
