Today I finished my final Christmas ornament, another Santa from The Prairie Schooler. I've stitched this one five times now! I ran out of gold beads so two of them were finished with green ones.
My gift from 'Secret Santa ' this year was a small stitching project which I started yesterday and finished today, Appropriately most of this was stitched on a train. I made sure I left nothing behind this time! I'm not sure how I will finish this one. At the moment I'm thinking of buying a paperweight, I think Framecraft do them, and finishing it that way. I changed the aida for linen but apart from that this was stitched as charted. The design is called Steam Train and it is from a company called Mouseloft.
My next piece of train stitching will be The Silvery Tree from the Mill Hill Festival of Trees series. This is the last one to stitch as I did the other five last year. As you can see I've made a small start.
The cross stitching may take a back seat over Christmas and New Year as I have a different stitching project to do.
Yes, it's Sara Lund's red jumper from the second series of the Danish thriller 'The Killing'. Only as you can see I'm doing mine in a teal like colour, not red.
This is likely to be my last post before Christmas and possibly until the New Year. Next year the rotation is back!
Until then I hope everyone has a great Christmas and a happy New Year.
