The Night Before Christmas - The Prairie Schooler



The Night Before Christmas

Available in issue 243 of the
Cross Stitch Collection magazine




The trio was stitched on 14ct dark rustico aida,
which I thought was perfect to keep up with the rustic folksy style of the designs

I used all the DMC recommended colours 




Finished off as flat ornaments with felted back.

Each have their own little grelot
for festive look finish.




Toodles,
Mii

      Although, I don't think these are my best finishes...
      Let's just say I had a frustrating time finishing them off on Sunday afternoon. I didn't know I knew such an extensive selection of swear words :D It was just one of them days, when things don't go the way they should!
