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.
an old piece of Aida cloth in my stash that cost me .50! That is an old, old purchase that is finally getting used!
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!
