Unbelievable...2 finishes??

I think it's kind of New Year's resolution...take more time for stitching and hopefully reading too. Still low season here for work so have more free time till probably April unless weather starts to warm up in March then we will be out working at the terrace. Here's a design i pin off through Pinterest last week of December but just now i can' t find who the designer is. I finish it off into a Mattress Pincushion....since it's my first finish for this year, it will be added to my personal collection.... ....same as with this Christmas ornament. As i've already stitched this one before but sent it out as gift. It is from JCS 2007! I think this issue of 2007 is one of my favorite so far! Looking back at the designs, i had made a few already but mostly sent out either for exchanges or for gifts so i will pick more from here for my own collections or for gifts too. This lovely view greeted me this morning when i came out at the dyke for a walk. It was chilly as it was a bit windy but just like stitching and reading i do want to get back to walking if not jogging. I opted out for a walk as i had a heavy Zumba lesson last night so my legs aren't into jogging. Do really need exercise after all the lovely, tasty foods we had during the holidays. Hope everyone having a good start of the week. Many many Thanks to all who had stopped by and leave me a comment.Really, really appreciate them all.
