Thanksgiving Finish

This cute little piece went ridiculously fast. Even with holiday prep and working this week, I still managed to get this guy stitched up in less than a week. I love, love, LOVE how it turned out. I think this one should be a no sew finish, probably in block form. I will have to see what ribbons and trims there are out there, however, 'tis the season for steals and deals so I should be able to find something suitable. At least that's what all of the ads are telling me, haha! :)

At any rate, here is my latest finish:

Design: Marshmallow Sweet  Kit #DM20-5101

Designer: Debbie Mumm for Mill Hill

Fabric Used: 32 count Cashel linen in Fog by Picture This Plus from their Crystal (opalescent) line

Fibers Used: DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117 in 165, 166, 318, 413, 758, 3033, 3766, 3810, 3811, Ecru, White

Accoutrements Mill Hill beads in size 11/0: #00161 Crystal #02031 Citronand #02097 Bahama Blue

Stitchers' Notes: Design one of four in the 2015 series, Winter Cheer. Substituted 32 count Cashel linen in Fog by Picture This Plus from their Crystal (opalescent) line for the included white perforated paper. Began Friday, November 18, 2016. 

As of Monday, November 21, 2016:

Finished Thursday, November 24, 2016:

Well, I had best be off. Time to get out the long anticipated Noel 2009, a retired design by Jackye Derhay Renahy of A Mon Ami Pierre. I have so many things I want to do with this one and I have every intention of going nutty on this one in the style of my Winter Sampler from Diane Williams of Little House Needleworks. It should be a good show!

I hope everyone had a blessed and full Thanksgiving day and I wish you all the happiest of holidays this upcoming season! :)
