Christmas Finish

Good evening all

I hope you are all doing ok on this Wednesday - we are on our way to the weekend people :)

As the title of this post would suggest I have a finish to share with you guys. I've had the last three days off work and in between running errands I'm please to say I picked up the needle and managed to get a finish - YAY!

As I've mentioned before it is now kind of a tradition for me to stitch an ornament each year to place on the tree and due to my lack of crafting this year it was looking like I wouldn't get one done in time - but that was all fixed today.

The last time I shared this piece with you was waaaay back in January when I first started it, and I hadn't touched it again so this was my starting point this week...



And today I placed the final x - I think this is such a sweet pattern :)

Featured in the 2012 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments
Stitched on 16ct Rustico Oatmeal Aida in the called for DMC colours


Obviously as you can tell I still need to Finish finish this, I'm thinking of attempting my first flat ornament but I'm not sure if I am brave enough - but either way that will have to wait until after payday now to get the supplies needed.

So now this is complete what next? I'm not sure to be honest, I might just have a bit of a stash fondle and see what happens... :)

Until next time!

  8. That's a very pretty stitch - and looks like it stitched up quite quickly once it got its turn out of the WIP pile! I'm going to follow Julie's link now as I have quite a few finishes that need to be finished properly!
    Look forward to seeing what you stitch up next.
