As I'm participating in a few different SALs I think there may be duplication for which I apologise.
The main project I would like to show you is Christmas Village by Prairie Schooler which is almost finished.
By the time I do my Wipocalypse update at the beginning of February it will be finished so there will be a different photo.
This piece was gifted to me by a friend who had a "clear out" and passed me what she described as a "few cross stitch bits and pieces". Actually there was a cornucopia of charts, threads, fabric, buttons and a small number of UFOs, this being one which I fell in love with and immediately set about completing. It is stitched on antique white evenweave using DMC in a lovely set of colours - this was a large part of the appeal of the design for me.
My intention is to have it framed in time for display in December.
I also stitched a little birthday card as a gift for a friend who loves tea
It was a free kit from a long since discontinued magazine called Jane Greenoff's Cross Stitch.
And finally I am going to include one of my new starts in 2015 - Mirabilia's At The Met because 2 of the 4 Caron Waterlillies needed for this fabulous design were part of the gifted stash from the friend who had the "clear out"
I am stitching this as part of a SAL for Mirabilia stitchers and am really enjoying it. I have stitched quite a few Mirabilias in the past but it's been a while since I tackled a larger design. I was really sorry to put her down and move on to the next project in my rotation but she will be waiting for me next month.
