A Christmas same day start and finish

Started and finished this one last night after all the hubbub had died down. It was nice to sit in the bed and relax for a bit before sleep. It also gave me the idea of putting my UFOs beside the bed and stitching on those every night until they are completed. :D.

I also tweaked the design a bit. The big star/snowflake charm was supposed to go between the H and the L in Holy, however, I thought it looked more like a big star rather than a snowflake, so I winged the letter O and put the charm between the Holy and the Night. There was a bit more to it, but I wanted mine a bit plainer. I haven't had a SMO finish in quite some time, and I am hoping to get to more in the coming year. And after the 12 Days of Christmas that Sandy just now got through hosting for the board members, I have more than enough to stitch! :D

Anyhoo, here is my start and finish with the related notes. :)

Design: Holy Night (Secret Shop chart)

Designer: SanMan Originals

Fabric: Black 14 count aida

Fiber: Caron Collection Waterlilies in Moonlight.

Hope everyone had a good day yesterday and is out hitting the sales today! :)
