Merry Christmas

Hello My friends.
My banner hung.
`Merry Christmas`
I needed to get back to fit it all in!
New wallpaper up in that area.:)

A close up of the letters put together.

My ornament from my friend Katrina.
Cute little bird.

This wreath `Noel` from my friend Kath.

Love both of these ornaments.

Hubby made these from an old Totara post.
So cool.
Enjoy your Christmas time.
Happy Stitching,

Taking a little time.

Hello my friends.
I put a little bit of time aside from either wallpapering
 or Christmas stitching, to stitch a little on my
 `I belong to a Cross stitch nation.` 

Another flower,the word `Cross` and changed little man`s hair.

This Shepherd`s Bush Stocking is for our youngest grandson.

A couple of table runner`s for gifts. 

The links to others that are doing the SAL with a difference.
Merry Christmas.
I hope there is some stitching time in your day.

Ornaments stitched

Hello my friends.
 Here are two ornaments I have finished.

From the 2011 JCS Christmas Ornament magazine.
Christmas Tree Cat,
by Briittercup Designs.
For the trim it`s Moda Vera Yoyo yarn.
Kath has this now.:)

Merry Christmas Drum.
By Wendy Peatross.
JCS Christmas Ornaments 2018 issue.

Once I had stitched design I counted 6 threads from the bottom 
and back stitched over 2 in green across. At the top I counted 10 threads
back stitching again. This helped with the button hole stitch I used to
join the top and bottom pieces which are plastic circles covered with wool felt.
The top circle has a hole in it so the ribbon could come through for hanging.
The drum sticks are burnt match sticks,washed,with beads attached with sticky glue.
I am so pleased with this.
Well back on with my day, part of which is carrying on wallpapering.
Still haven`t found the first lot so with a few dollars off we paid $600 for more!
Happy Stitching,

A little Man

Hello my friends.
The flowers of a lemon tree.
I have not noticed these before,
they are so pretty.

The weeks have gone by so quickly.
Time to show my stitching for 
SAL with a difference.
I have stitched little man with mustard coat 
and blue tie and hat trim.
Not really a mustard girl but fits in well.

I have my Christmas stitching to carry on with,
plus we are putting up new wallpaper in dining and lounge.
Please visit with these other SAL stitchers.
Happy Stitching,
