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!


The ‘C’ word

Some people hate the ‘C’ word, prefering to spend most of their time not thing about it. After all it only happens for a short period and then the world is back to normal again. The ‘C’ word I’m referring to is of course Christmas.

Usually I’m part of the group that does not want to think about it or hear about it January-October (November if I can manage it). This year though I’m breaking my own rules and today I stitched my first Christmas Tree ornament. As soon ad I assemble it I’ll post pics 🙂

Any one else started their Christmas preparations?
