I hope that everyone had a great Christmas and New Year and that Father Christmas did some stash enhancing!
One of my stash enhancements was the Gingerbread Mouse from Just Nan. Here it is before making up alongside a ten pence piece to give an idea if it's size.
This was stitched on the recommended 32ct Antique Almond linen with the suggested DMC floss. Here she is made up, sitting on a Champagne cork.
This was my last finish of 2012. Prior to that I made made my annual family Christmas ornament, this year it was 'Do you hear' by Shepherd's Bush. I made this ornament five times, only four of them are pictured here.
The chart for this ornament appeared in the 2012 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament issue. I stitched it on 32ct Lambswool with the suggested DMC floss.
Now to my first finish of 2013. Finished this afternoon it is another Shepherd's Bush design, 'Charmed Hearts'.
To finish with an update on my progress on the tree skirt.
The Cream Santa is finished, except the couching and there is not much more to do cross stitch wise on the Blue Santa.
This year the rotation is back, the first week proper starting tomorrow so watch this space, I've not quite decided what to do but it will be a new start.
