We have had the weirdest weather! It has been in the 60's and low 70's for weeks. It's getting close to Christmas and I want cold and maybe some snow. So far, the closest to snow and cold is stitching it. I finished LK Winter Alphabet over the week end. I am going to have an in and out frame made in case I do the others. I do love the fall one.
I also did DT's January. I used a scrap of 32 ct. pearl gray and I used the called for NPI's. I do love me some silks.
On Saturday, I drove up to New Hampshire to Yankee Cross Stitch to take a class from Donna of By the Bay fame. She is a lovely person and we had a great time. We made this cute tree. It is made out of wool, a dowel and wire. Darn easy to put together. The only thing I would change is the really bright green floral tape we used to rap the truck of the tree. I am going to get some darker green tape and go over the bright green. Then I will love the little tree. I must say that the base is really nice. Red and has a nice design in the medal. You can click on any of the pictures for a larger view.
I have collected some Santa's over the years and I thought that I would share one of my collection at the end of each post this month. What I noticed, while taking their pics is that they are all woodsy kinda of Santa's. This one I got in Canada a number of years ago when Cheryl and I brought her Mother back home.
This is my small tree in the kitchen. I bought it at the Christmas Tree Shop for around 10 bucks. A great buy. I have my cross stitch ornies on it. I really need to do more. Hopefully for next season. Wow! I need to thank everyone for the wonderful comments on my last post. They mean a lot to me. Until next time....Happy Stitching! Deborah
