Happy Noel!

Well, it’s a tiny bit out of season, but this weekend was the mini-SAL that Leena and I have to stitch Christmas ornaments. I know that Leena is secret stitching – her ornament is for an exchange with a group of Finnish stitchers who are all busily stitching for a Christmas ornament exchange at the moment. I managed to finish a gorgeous one this weekend (if I do say so myself LOL):




Design: Just Nan ‘Holly Noel’
Fabric: Country Stitches 28ct Lugana ‘Kiwi’
Floss: DMC as charted



I’m thinking this one is going to be a flatfold for myself – I don’t know if I can bear to part with it :) All this Christmas stitching throughout 2008 will have to bear some fruit for me!

Now, I’m just about to post off my HOE biscornu exchange, and I’m just waiting on one piece of mail to post off my SBEBB Quaker Exchange. So soon I shall have more photos to share.

Happy stitching!

Love the "NOEL" piece. I haven't visited your blog in a while, so I must make a comment on the wonderful chickens from a previous post. These are so cute. I love all sorts of chicken designs. I even have a pattern for a patch-quilted cover for a square tissue box. No, haven't made it yet. Still in the "wishful thinking" pile of craft items.
Hope you and your hubby had a wonderful Easter.
