I managed to complete two cross stitch projects this past week, thanks to two snow storms!
The Woodland Sampler is now finished with December and the year block. It is difficult to get a good photo of it that shows all the white snowflakes and the silver sparkly floss.
I also finished the Gingerbread Lane. This one is also tough to show well in a photo. The fabric itself has sparkles and some of the stitches are also in a pale pink sparkle. It is a pain to work with but looks pretty.
I hung it for now where our holiday cards go when we received them. I will decide later what to do with it...
Both patterns are from the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. I love their patterns (if you couldn't tell!) and already ordered the 2014 year-long one! Check it out here:

This one is super simple to make and has few ingredients:
