My enthusiasm for Christmas ornaments led me to sign up on this SAL. Added to the delight of actually stitching, there was the pleasure of going through my stack of charts and chosing 12 that I would stitch during 2013.
First up is this mitten which showcases my love of winter Christmas scenes. I live in the Antipodes and have summer Christmas and don't we all want what we can't have? And I love DMC 115 so they combined well for this first ornament.
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
