Couple of finishes

My shakiness from the new meds is finally lessening so I can stitch again. Thank heaven. I stitched on 2 SAL projects. Thanks to everyone for your comments and words of encouragement. The depression isn't as bad now, so guess the meds are helping that (and I'm very grateful).
First is the January square from the OakHaven Designs SAL. Now I'm ready to stitch the February square. I'm stitching mine as individual ornament squares and not on one large piece of fabric. I did this on 14ct green Aida and used DMC threads.
The next piece is from the SanManville Halloween SAL. It's a members only design that is not available anymore. Now I'm ready to stitch the 2nd chart. Haven't decided yet if I'm going to make it into a flatfold, cube or tuck. I stitched this on 14ct dyed fabric from Sapphire Sitching. It's one of the colors in her fall collection. I loved working on this fabric.
Well, that's all for now. I'm going to get busy stitching again. Thanks for visiting my blog and for comments you leave. I so enjoy reading & appreciate all your comments..

Wonderful finishes. Glad to hear the shakiness has gone away, and that you are feeling better and able to stitch. I trully find it "Depressing" when I can't stitch, and will actually go into what I call withdrawls. They must really show, because my husband or my kids will say.... Honey/Mom you NEED to go stitch LOL. Anyway, glad the meds are working better for you. Great finishes! Thanks for sharing them!
