Christmas is a coming…

I promised myself that this year I’d start my Christmas-themed stitching early enough to be able to create a seasonal display of sorts.  So I decided to get cracking now and got together a few supplies – fabric, patterns, threads, beads, bauble, trim – just to get in the mood… And here’s the first finish! (Sorry, photos were taken at night)

Christmas ornament with finishing detail

Christmas ornament

Pattern: Christmas Rondell (Gift of Stitching, Issue 57 Oct 2010)
Fabric: 32 Count Belfast natural opalescent linen
Threads:  Green-DMC 500, Red-DMC 777
Ribbon trim and green pins

A couple more in the works. If only I could find my turbo needles 😉

Happy Christmas Stitching!

Certified X-stitch addict and lover of tea, fabrics and beads. I work in the vocational education and training sector and in my spare time potter around in the garden growing roses. I'm mum to two adult children of whom I'm very proud.
