Waiting For Christmas SAL

In June I joined Manuela from Le Crocette di Manu/The Shop Around The Corner‘s Waiting for Christmas SAL. I know, Christmas in July, am I going crazy? Well it’s not like we’ve had a proper summer here in Britain yet anyway so might as well get on with autumn and winter planning. I started this pretty much straight away and it was a quick and easy design to stitch, however I’ve been more than a little lazy about posting the pictures lately, so here they finally are.

I really love this design, not sure how I’m gonna finish it, but I’m sure I’ll figure something out.



Fabric: 28-count antique white cashel linen
Threads: Caron Wildflowers in Flame, Pine Forest and Holiday

I can’t wait to stitch the second part, as part 1 was so beautiful!

    This is really pretty, and I like your planning, as you say the weather here is not so good, I’ve just started a new x-stitch project myself but at the moment I’m between that and knitting, wish I had an extra pair of hands…

        That’s great:) I’m hopeless with knitting, I’ll leave that for my mum, she is an amazing knitter although not as creative as you judging by your etsy shop.

        Thanks, I like to try a bit of everything, but I just can’t seem to leave things plain…I seem to have to embellish everything lol

        nope – cold, damp and miserable. Tomato plants are rotting so we won’t be eating any fresh produce from the garden this year
