A Finish and a RAK

I finished Spot of Winter by The Drawn Thread this weekend - it was such a fun stitch! I always feel like doing some Christmas stitching at this time of year and with it's snowman, robins and trees it's Christmassy enough for me! I still have to make it into a little cushion - I have the same frosty blue linen for the backing. I will probably stitch a few more Christmas ornaments over the next few months.

I was lucky enough to receive a RAK from Daniela last week! She knows that I love the Hummel designs, so she sent me this lovely chart for my "collection". I think it is out of print - I have never seen it before. Thank you Daniela!

I am seriously considering a new start! I have a few Heaven and Earth Designs charts in my stash. I purchased this one earlier this year - her name is Scheherazade by Jonathon Earl Bowser and she is absolutely GORGEOUS! I have another one of this artists "goddess" charts which I purchased a few years ago and I think the time has come to start one of them :)

I don't know when I will ever finish Mary Wigham - she took priority over all other stitching (and starts) earlier this year, but now the stash is calling!

Enjoy the rest of the week and happy stitching!

Scheherazade is absolutely beautiful!! We should start a little HAED SAL, I think !

Scheherazade is truly amazing. I have never done any H&E designs. They scare me a bit off, because they are sooooo big. I am excited to see your progress on it.

And you are very welcome for the chart. I am glad you like it and have some use for it.
