one down and one to go until my slate is clear for New Year's Day and the Crazy January Challenge.
Unfortunately, this hasn't been my favorite project to work on, but I was determined to get it done.  I guess I feel like if I've invested the money I'm going to invest the time.  It's hard to imagine ever doing it again, unless....say.... I was stranded somewhere and this was the one and only project I had.... I'd do it on a nice soft 28 or 32 count linen with DMC threads.   I don't plan to have it framed.  I'll make it into a wall hanging at some point.  While pressing it I noticed I didn't stitch my initials.  I guess I was a little too happy to be done. 

Either tonight or tomorrow I'll put the finishing stitches in Jenny Bean's Christmas sampler.  Now, that's an entirely different story.  Pure pleasure to stitch. 

I have big plans for January stitching and sewing so stay tuned.

  5. It really is cute, but I am all about if it doesn't thrill me I stop, LOL. Then I offer it up for adoption ;-).
