Also, my SIL let us know that they'd received Orlaith's stocking and were thrilled with it, which is lovely to hear as it was a labour of love on my part - and H's too as he followed every stitch that I put in! I also tucked in a small ornament for them - another Prairie Schooler design, Redwork Santa, again using the recommended DMC floss and stitched on 32ct antique white linen.
I'm going to bring a bit of stitching over to Dublin with me - notably the SBEBB Winter House Exchange which I really must get going on - but I'm going to lay Paradigm Lost aside as it's just too big to bring. I'll join back up with the Snowbird SAL stitchers on the first Thursday in January. I'll be back in the new year with 2008 stitching goals and very likely some photos from our holiday.
Oh - and one last thing - you may remember the wonderful stitched box topper that Saskia sent to me as part of the Crazy Exchange. I've finished off her return gift this evening and it will be in the post tomorrow.
Wishing you and yours a safe and happy holiday season and all the very best in 2008!
