Well, I do have two more finishes to show you, firstly this one which was my "train stitch" while commuting last week...
DMC "Make A Wish" Pirate kit
Stitched on 14 count white aida with DMC threads
and this one which is from the current edition of Cross Stitch Collection magazine...
Prairie Schooler ornament
Stitched on 14 count Zweigart "Dirty" aida
with DMC threads
There are two more PS ornaments in the magazine, I've already started the second and hope to have them all on the tree this year!
Speaking of which... HERE'S OUR TREE!!!!
Me and the boys decorated it this afternoon while hubby was at work, we also put all our nick-nacks out round the house. You can see the Nativity advent calendar in the background with a door already open expectantly! The first year we had these calendars, I put sweets behind all the doors when the boys had gone to bed on 30th November...well as you can imagine my 3 and 2 year old sons had the calendars on the floor and were stuffing sweets into their mouths so fast on the first morning of advent! So now Santa's elves have to visit every night to put a sweet behind one door at a time ready for the next day.
I'm very happy with our tree this year and will be back tomorrow to show you a little handmade goodie I received this week which is already gracing the tree - can you spot it?
I will also be drawing the winner of a €25 voucher (or equivalent) for those who managed to complete four or more posts of Mega Mini Month Madness in November. Drawing will take place tomorrow to make sure that November is over for everyone, wherever you may happen to be stitching!
