Travelling Treasure Chest

The travelling chest has made it through my letterbox yesterday! It has been to quite a few places already.

June from Butterfly Wings in UK kindly passed it on to me... with a little extra surprise! A sweet little owl card and some lovely ribbon. Thank you sweetie :)

There was a multitude of charts to choose from and here is what I've gone for:

Snowy Deer from CCN (Frosty Forest collection)

We're Not Gossiping from LK

Housework Never Killed Anyone from LK 

So a big thank you to whoever placed these in the chest :)  I took 3 little charts and replaced them with 6 new ones!! I hope they will find a new home soon.
The chest will now be travelling all the way to Australia to Lisa from Lisa V's Lounge
It was fun taking part in this game, many many thanks to Kim for organizing this.

The Night Before Christmas - The Prairie Schooler

The Night Before Christmas from The Prairie Schooler
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.

JEC SAL anyone?

I just bought the latest issue of TWOCS and found the little 2015 desk calendar free gift.
Oooh, these Joan Elliott designs are so cute! Impossible to resist! I have decided to stitch one a month over the coming new year
Now, because I'm worried I might just give up on the idea, I am looking for volunteers to keep me on tracks! Yes, like a JEC SAL (Joan Elliott Calendar) So? Who is with me?? All you need is the latest issue of TWOCS!! This is a fun SAL, there is absolutely nothing to win, just the joy of stitching 12 small adorable designs. All you have to do is post your monthly finish and try to stitch the 12 patterns PS: Vickie, have you seen the Cupid Poodle for February??? So sweet!!! Let me know if you want to join me!
