This is stitched on Dublin linen over one thread with DMC 115 and it has turned out small as I wanted for my tree this year. Although from JCS Ornament Issue of 2002 (thanks Staci!!) I have changed the date of course.
Last night's stitching was on an exchange so no snaps yet. I hope to do the finishing tonight as I have everything I need in the stash cupboard. Then there will be the happy happy dance as I have only three WIPs in the box.
I am an office administrator with a background as a mathematics teacher whose current daily routine is generally this work - gym - stitch - read - sleep.
I belong to an Embroiderers' Guild and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My elderly mother lives with me. She is Half Deaf Three Quarters Blind and in this blog is know affectionately as the HD3QBEM.
