It is finally December and the weather and the Christmas spirit is heating up here in Cape Town! I have some Christmas stitching and finishing to share.
I really enjoyed stitching this LHN ornament from this year's Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue. It is called 'Fresh Fallen Snow' and is stitched on self-dyed fabric in DMC threads and finished as a hanging ornament, backed with red fabric.
I stitched this cute little Tra la la piece earlier this year and finally did the finishing. It is stitched on self-dyed fabric in DMC and House of Embroidery stranded cotton. It is also finished as a hanging ornament and is backed with green marble fabric.
I'm working on a lovely piece by Atelier Soed Idee - it is called 'Scandinavian Christmas' and I'm stitching it on self-dyed fabric in the recommended DMC colours. The suggested finish is a Christmas card holder, but I think I might finish it as a pillow.
That is all for now - I'm off to visit some blogs :)
Until next time - Happy Stitching!
