First post for 2010 and I wish you all a very happy New Year. Isn't it great to have a whole new twelve months to plan for. I have one exchange planned for February, three more cycles of the Round Robin and a long list of "what I want to do"
While on holiday in Wellington I did make a start on a Christmas present - how good is that ?!!
This is a freebie nativity design from Kirsten Schmidt (you need to scroll down). I intend to make this into a flat fold so am stitching it in half cross stitch over one thread on 26 count Brussels linen. Despite the coarse count of the linen this is hard on the eyes and I will probably rotate with one of the other four WIPs I have in the basket. In real life the DMC threads are much brighter - this is a lousy photo sorry.
Today it is 26 degrees and at 7:30pm is still sunny and bright outside. Have a good evening everybody.
