Trying to get out of my stitching slump...

November was super busy. With work, Thanksgiving and our Vacation I feel like November came and went in a blink of an eye. Jon and I went to Las Vegas with some friends of ours. We went to several shows, the best one that we saw was La Reve. It was similar to a Cirque Du Soleil performance, we loved it!
December has been full of Christmas parties at work, shopping, and finishing Christmas gifts.
On the stitching front I have only worked on Christmas gifts I haven't worked on anything for myself. Now that I have gifted several items I can share. This past Monday was our annual Stitch and Bitch Dinner. I brought a gift exchange that I completed, this is by Old Colonial Designs.
I also brought Sally's gift, since she opened it I can share. This is a free sampler online by Linen and Threads. I decided to take a motif off of the sampler to complete this easel.
I also made a wreath using burlap ribbon and matching ornaments and decorative ribbon.
I am hoping that now that I have completed my Christmas items and shopping that I will go back to stitching on my WIPs!
I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
