Resolution #2 - PS Twelve Days of Christmas

Hi everyone!  A second resolution completed…….

Yes, I’ve managed to keep on track with stitching the whole of the PS chart The Twelve Days of Christmas through this year.  Never mind  twelve days of Christmas, it pretty much took me  twelve days to actually get these little pillows put together and on the wreath as I didn’t manage to set aside a day to sit down and work on getting them all assembled from start to finish.

But, it is now completed and I’m thrilled to have ticked another resolution off that list and to have this wreath hanging up for Christmas.  I can’t take credit for the idea of putting them on a wreath and displaying them this way.  I saw KarenV’s  wreath on her blog last December and thought it was a perfect way to display these. All pictures are clickable if you want a closer look.
Back soon, still have the monthly Christmas ornaments to share now that I finally have the Christmas tree up!  My ornament for December is stitched, just have to finish finish it and then I’ll be good to go. Thanks for all your lovely comments last time round on my Nikycreations pillows.  Two resolutions down, one to go!

Until next time ……

I was just thinking about you last night, Lois, and wondering how your 12 Days wreath was coming and here it is!! It looks fabulous--I'll bet you're so proud of yourself for sticking to all three of your resolutions--and well you should be!!

Now, you have me thinking about doing the same thing next year--you're such an enabler :)

Hope this last week before Christmas isn't too hectic and if I don't "talk" to you before then--enjoy the holiday with your family...
