Peppermint Twist!

Firstly can I thank everyone for your lovely comments and offers of help on my cushions. I really cannot express how much they mean to me. Thank you.

There has not been a lot of stitching this week. I have been Christmas Shopping so too tired in the evening to do any stitching but I did manage to finish LHN Peppermint Twist this evening. It has taken me three Sundays lol I am such a slow stitcher. I have been stitching this as part of an SAL with Sally and Barb.



It is stitched on 14ct Ecru aida using a mixture of DMC, Crescent Colours and Works threads. I am not too sure about the colour of the fabric I was hoping the white might show up a bit more. I was planning on stitching Ponsietta House on this fabric now I'm not sure but I have until 1st December to decide lol.

I have worked on Vervaco Lady in Blue but there is so little progress I won't bother with a photo. I am going to put her away until after Christmas as I am going to work on some Christmas Stitching probably the last three LHN Ornaments and Ponsietta House which as I mentioned before I am doing as part of a SAL.

Elisa, http://paperfaerie71.blogspot.com/, is having a giveaway to celebrate her three year blogaversary. Her stitching is gorgeous so go pop over and put your name down!

Until next time, happy stitching.

Yes, I did stitch Joseph, Mary, and Baby Jesus. The header on top of my blog. It is one of my Favorite Pieces I have done. It hangs above my bed.

Oooh, what a gorgeous finish Lesleyanne, such a lovely design. When I was a child, before my mum and dad split up, my dad always used to get me some candy canes each year to hang on our tree, so they have a special meaning for me.
Can't wait for the 1st for us to start our SAL!
