Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! How fun that Slow Sunday Stitching falls on Christmas day this year! I hope each of you will enjoy some peaceful moments with needles and threads, surrounded by family and friends, or enjoying the solitude of your own company.

I am so excited about my little snow family embroidery. This is a free pattern called "Family Portrait" created by Melisa at the Pinker n Punkin blog (click here to get the pattern).  I made 2 slight alterations to the design and love how it turned out! I used a dark blue variegated for  Momma, a light blue/purple variegated for Daughter, a navy for Son, and an orange/brown variegated for the birds. I adore the addition of the sweet birds! I hope to turn this into a finished mini quilt before the end of the year.

I have also been working on a cross stitch pattern for a Christmas gift. I found the pattern when I was snooping around on Etsy. I found
an old piece of Aida cloth in my stash that cost me .50! That is an old, old purchase that is finally getting used!

It has been another wonderful year of being inspired by your beautiful hand stitched projects each Sunday. T
hank you for sharing your blog and instagram posts, and thank you for every encouraging comment you took the time to write to another stitcher over the course of the year.
Merry Christmas stitching friends!

Have a lovely and merry Christmas, Kathy. Even though I don't participate as much as I used to, thanks for the link every Sunday. It is always fun to see what everyone is working on. I hope you will continue this again next year. Stay safe and warm. ;^)

Merry Christmas Kathy to you and your family. I appreciate you hosting the slow stitchers every week, one of my favourite reads, I have to say, so nice to see what all the other talented stitchers have been working on. Best wishes from sunny and warm New Zealand.
