Come See!


We all love Wintery/Christmas patterns, so we wanted to show you some of our finished products.
Anita stitched this beauty called Santaberry Pudding by Shepherd's Bush 3 Christmases ago on Natural Heatherfield, 16ct (over 2).


Lots of buttons on this one... they really finish off the piece.


You got a glimpse of Holy Night in a previous post. Anita stitched this one too (it's also a design by Shepherd's Bush) and finished it just in time for Christmas this year. She had it and Santaberry Pudding both framed by Neale at the Thread & Eye. Can't wait to see this one in person when we get together at Anita's next month!

This is Christmas Rose Sampler by Cedar Hill Designs done on a piece of White Birch Heatherfield.

Stitched this little Christmas angel in 2003. She was a freebie from Lavender & Lace and a great "quick fix". The frame I picked up at Walmart for about $6.00. Should have bought more than just one of those!


This Santa pattern was adapted from an antique post card and came from a Leisure Arts hardcover book that was published back in the late 80's. It needs to be re-framed someday... back in those days I did most of my framing myself.

One of my Christmas favourites... Seasons Greetings by Bent Creek. I stitched it in 2004 on a piece of Clay 28ct. Cashel linen.


This one was also framed at the Thread & Eye along with my Christmas Rose Sampler.


Hopefully we'll have some new pieces to show you this time next year. Just like all the rest of you stitchers, we all have a very long "to do" list!
