Peacocks, phoenixes, and feathers galore

I have another small HD...really small.  It's Just Nan's Keep a Little Secret, which is a tiny over one sampler that is finished into a needle keep and all contained in a cute little tin.  And since the theme was peacocks, of course I had to have it. 

I have also decided I have been doing waaaay too many ornaments, so I decided to concentrate on a big project for a while.  I picked up a few different WIPs until I decided on Joan Elliott's From the Ashes.

I've already made significant progress just in the last couple of days.  And I love the colors.  :)

And for a bit of crafting, I buckled down and made some Red Hat headbands my mom requested.  We seen some in a boutique that my mom really liked (but not in red hat colors), so I imitated them the best I could.

Ornaments galore!

Finally, I have time to catch up on pictures.  First are my three recent finishes, which are all ornaments.

This is a combination of two Victoria Sampler ornaments, Cardinal Snowflake from their freebie page and Snowman Cracker from the latest issue of The Gift of Stitching magazine.

And these are the October and November Jars by San Man Originals.  Just one more to go!

And finally, what I did this weekend...ornament finishing!  I was very productive and finished off ten ornaments!

The two Celtic ones are for me, the two snowmen are for my mom if she wants them, and the rest who knows?  I didn't sign up for any exchanges this year.  I'm doing a special Celtic/Irish tree this year, so I might have space on my big tree for a few of these.  :)

November goals (a bit late)

This month has been more than a little crazy so far, so I've been really delinquent in posting here.  But I have been stitching.  I only have a couple of ornaments done, but I'll have to wait until I'm on the right computer to post pics.  However, I can do monthly goals.

October goals:Stitch Sanman October Jar -- done!
Work on UFO RR replacement -- done!
Stitch Sanman Halloween Sampler -- done!
Finish Halloween ornaments for tree -- done!
Finish the two amigurumis that are started and start third one --didn't even touch
Work on bathroom stuff -- done!

So, not bad.  I just didn't work on any crochet projects.

November goals:
Stitch Sanman November Jar
Finish some Christmas ornaments
Finish the amigurumis!

There.  I think I'll keep it simple this month, with the holiday and all.
