'Tis The Season

Well, apparently, I managed to get into the holiday season any way. At least stitching wise I did. I suppose I should be a lot further along on this one than I should be, but I really do not care. I have stitched a lot the past two years and quite frankly, I am not halfway wondering if I am just not burned out completely. 

At any rate, here is what I have so far, on this Christmas Eve day:

Design: 'Tis The Season from the Joyeux Noel book

Designer: Barb Adams of Blackbird Designs

Fabric:  R and R Reproductions 30 count overdyed linen in Witches' Teeth 

Fibers Used: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Collard Greens, Fern Frond Slate, Tree Trunk, and Tulip. Gumnut Yarns Stars silk floss in #991 ecru.

Stitchers' Notes: As this piece of fabric is not large enough, only the cardinal and a portion of the branch will be stitched.

I have tonight and tomorrow off, so I am hoping to get more time in on this piece. 

I must be off. I am wishing everyone the happiest of holidays and the most blessed of new years!


Respectfully submitted,
