I haven't been around in ages because I haven't had anything worth showing off, but now I do.  My very dear friend I Sew Cute made me the most wonderful embroidery pattern as a gigantic surprise.  It's my nephews and niece!

I decided to use it for Christmas presents for my mother and sister on calendar blanks I bought from SeptemberHouse on etsy. 

I haven't finished the edges of the calendar yet, but here's the stitchery:









It's mostly stem stitch with a few French knots.

Thanks for looking!

Wow, the pictures of your nephews and nieces came out so nice.  Grandma and Mom are going to love these at Christmas.  Awesome job.

Thank you all so much!  September House's calendars are awesome, and I'm kind of thrilled to find them.  My grandmother who passed away 5 years ago used to give us a "calendar towel" like this every year for Christmas, so this should be a particularly meaningful gift.

And I should also mention that I Sew Cute sells custom patterns on her etsy (isewcute.etsy.com).

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
