Almost there!

After a slow start on Monday, only half a dozen stitches stitched, things improved and yesterday I put the last cross stitch into the Santa Tree Skirt.


All the back stitch has been completed except that done in black, most of the back stitch if I'm honest, then I need to do the couching and cording on all of the Santas. I've also decided to replace the French Knots with seed beads. so still quite a lot to do but the end is now in sight!

This week it's back to the Lizzie*Kate Halloween flips.

In answer to a question on the comments to the last post the gold frame was one that I had, I can't remember where it came from.  What I tend to do is mount projects so that I can swap them about. The Shepherd's Bush project from last time will fit in the same frame. This is something I stitched before I began blogging which, until now, lived in the gold frame.



Happy stitching!

I do the same thing, switching out frames. Especially for my smaller finishes.

Your tree skirt looks amazing. I'd love to stitch a tree skirt but I don't think I'd have the patience. You hve done a great job.

Such a beautiful tree skirt! Will look lovely! Love your little Christmas sweet tweet (Michelle Peiffer I think) as I've done him too, and he's in the dreaded bottomless box waiting to be framed or such! :)

Congratulations on your 'almost a finish' tree skirt. It is truly beautiful.

I thought I'd seen that frame before now I know where.

I too, like your response from Anne, have several to frame and never quite seem to get round to it, shame really , they deserve to be seen.

Looking forward to seeing your next post. Happy stitching.
