Vintage Christmas - Country Cottage Needleworks



Hello Peeps!


A little while ago you might recall I'd started stitching on that project.
At the time, I opted to use linen fabric and really wasn't enjoying it... so put it aside.


While sorting out my WIPs a few months ago,
I decided to start working on it again but
this time on a much nicer fabric of my choice.


oOoOo

So here we are!
A festive finish!!


Vintage Christmas
from Country Cottage Needleworks



oOoOo

Stitched on overdyed tin colour, 16ct aida fabric from Sew It All
2 over 1 using DMC, CC & WDW threads




To be finished as a flat fold
once I find some matching fabric :)




Wishing you all a
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!


Will be back early January with the CJC 2016
Toodles,
Mii

  8. I love it! I knew it would look good on Tin FF but had no idea just how gorgeous it would be.
    I am going to shamelessly copy your colour scheme when I stitch this one - it's perfect and couldn't be improved on!

    1. Thank you sweetie! I think the white doesn't show up too well on it. Maybe on a darker batch it will look even better :)

  31. Oh, this is absolutely gorgeous and looks so much nicer on the Tin fabric than your original linen. It's because of people like you, and the projects that you do, that my stitching tastes are changing towards designs like these. Thanks!! :)

  37. That looks really dreamy. I love the colours against your fabric, it's looks really Christmasy even though it's not using the vibrant traditional Christmas colours. I love it.
