Crazy with Cross Stitch

I went a little crazy the other day and ordered four patterns from Heaven and Earth Designs (HAED).  It wasn't my fault.  Really it wasn't.  They were on sale for 50% off.  It was a Veteran's Day sale so it was only running for 24-48 hours.  See?  I just HAD to get them right?  Before I show you wish patterns I got, I picked up my Noel and stitched a little bit on that.  I do like doing redwork and this time I am thinking that my back looks as good as the front.

Here is the front:

And here is the back:

I'm trying hard to keep the back clean since I'm not stitching with interfacing.  I will, however, probably put some interfacing on AFTER all the redwork is done.  I am thinking this will be a wall hanging for the office and hopefully it will be done by next year.  :)

Now, here are the HAED patterns that I got.  I think I will do the snowman/penguin one first but I can't start until I finish NOEL and possible the Gnome and the Critter Christmas one.

These choices shouldn't surprise anybody who knows me since I love wolves, dragons, and Christmas.  They will take a bit to do but I think I'm going to like working on them.

Time to take some allergy meds and then get to bed.  Everybody have a great day.

I had to look twice, your back does look as good as the front! The new pattersn --- my they look complicated! But most important to keep our hands and minds busy, so enjoy them all.
