Some finishing & getting to some Christmas stitching...

Hi everyone!  The finishing mojo struck with the needle roll-up I shared last time round so thought I’d let you see how that turned out!  I added fabric for the centre rather than linen which had been on the front cover picture.

The fabric had been a gift, as had the little acorn charm which I’d been keeping safe to use someday. 

As you know, I’m not a confident finisher but I was pleased with how this turned out.

I’m trying to get back to Christmas stitching on a Sunday.  Let’s face it, it is September and December will be here before we know it!  Here’s the recent Merry, Merry from Country Cottage Needleworks.  I loved this one as soon as I saw it and had to add it to my stash.  Well, you can tell how much I loved it as I pretty much started stitching it as soon as I received it!

Using a 32ct from my fabric stash and the suggested threads
The fabric in the background (which is a closer red than appears in this picture) is going to be used for the backing – now let’s see if the finishing mojo strikes again for me to finish finish it in time for this Christmas!!

I’m still not done with autumn stitching, hoping to start another design soon once I’ve done a bit of stash diving.

Hope all is well with you and yours.  Thanks for dropping by my blog and for those of you who take time to leave a comment – thank you!

Until next time…
