Christmas Ornament Finish and a RAK

Long time no blogging! I have not had much stitching time these past two weeks, but at least I have a small finish to show you. It is the "Russian Christmas Doll" by Sofia of GPA.

I replaced the recommended threads with DMC stranded cotton and Madeira Metallic Gold. This was such a fun stitch - I have always wanted to stitch a Russian Doll , so a Russian Doll Christmas Ornament was a real treat!
I have made a little progress on Prairie Schooler's "Winter Winds" and still hope to finish it in time for Christmas - it is also a fun stitch!
I was lucky enough to receive this RAK from a friend. It is 32 ct Harvest Beige Minster Linen. It is so beautiful - I need to find something to stitch on it!

I hope to have another free chart available later in the week. It is a small Christmas design that can be finished as an ornament or flatfold. Here is a sneak peek....

That's it for now - have a great week and Happy Stitching!

What a beautiful sweet little doll christmas ornament! I love the colors! It's so colorful and bright! Michelle, your christmas design was cute! Can't wait to see the whole design. I'm half finished my christmas sampler design too, too bad I can't finish the design to post it online before christmas day, because busy stitching on the Mary and others project recently.

That's a lovely little doll! I am sure it will look great into an ornament.
The Winter winds is coming along great and looking forward to see your christmas ornament.
