Vintage Christmas 2


Well I know, Spring is finally here and I'm working on a Christmas design!
Why not??

Last week, I've stitched a bit on 
Vintage Christmas from Country Cottage Needleworks

Here is my progress so far

 
I just love the charts from this company, they really are fun to stitch
I've also been using the recommended threads,
one of them being a hand over-dyed pink vari from Weeks Dye Works!
A really treat, the effect of the stockings is just perfect

Will put this project on hold for the time being
as I'm turbo stitching on Coeurs en Boites for Mummy Mii...

My next post will be about the SAL with Mii, Passion des Roses from Madame La Fée
Yes, I did managed to stitch a few crosses on this one too last week :D

Happy Stitching!
Mii x


---oooOooo---

La semaine dernière j'ai travaillé sur Vintage Christmas de chez Country Cottage Needleworks
J'adore cette compagnie!
Les grilles sont toutes aussi belles les unes que les autres!
J'ai utilisé les brins recommandés dont un vari rose de chez Weeks Dye Works
Un vrai régal! Les bottes roses en sont la preuve :)

Petite pause sur ce projet car je brodre très vite (tout du moins j'essaye)
sur une autre grille Coeurs en Boites pour un petit cadeau de fête des mères
J'espère le finir à temps!
Affaire à suivre dans un prochain message...

Dans quelques jours je vous montrerais mes tous derniers progrès
(plutot minimes) sur les SAL with Mii
Passion des Roses de chez Madame la Fée

A tout à l'heure...

  29. You have been a very busy little stitcher again,Mii1
    This is a lovely pattern and I think it is ok to stitch Christmas patterns when ever we want!
    When starting Christmas stitching early enough you will have them finished before the Christmas season :)
