I received a super package from USA. Becky sent me a box of candy tins and wooden boxes. Thank you so much, Becky, I love them. Now, I have to hunt for appropriate designs to stitch for these tins and boxes. Maybe I could use some of my completed pieces for these finishings!
Becky is a wonderful and fast stitcher. She is very creative with her finishes, visit her blog to see her gorgeous works.
I have been stitching diligently on Christmas Eve. Yes, it is definitely a Prairie Schooler's design. I had checked, the design is from Book 158. Here is my update, what is left to stitch is the band of snow at the bottom. I really love the two reindeer.
I jump on the wagon and join the Christmas Ornament Challenge 2011 hosted by Becky. This challenge started on November 1st and we are supposed to stitch Christmas ornaments for the next two months. I wonder, how many can I stitch? Please visit the blog to see the beautiful ornaments already posted there.
Here is my start of the first ornament. My theme is Santa, there are four of them in this series - Red, Green, Black and Gold.
Of course, I will stitch other Christmas designs beside Santas. Knowing me, I may just be tired of Santas after the first one.
The next piece is stitched for me by my friend, Claudia. Isn't is beautiful? I love it, thank you Claudia. This will be finished into a circular cushion/pillow.
The design was lifted from The Cross Stitcher, an UK magazine. The picture did not showed the true color of the fabric, it is actually pink!
That it for this posting. I hope to have Christmas Eve finished in my next update. And hopefully, there are Christmas ornaments to show, ha! ha!
Thank you for all your comments, they are greatly appreciated!
Hugs and keep stitching,
