And we have Shepherds!

The second "panel" of the Nativity Sampler is now complete - well almost.   I have two rows of specialty stitches and the trailing vines to do before welcoming the three wise men.
But so far so good.
And a close up shot -  each of the "lacy whitework" patterns are different and fun to stitch even if the Silk Mori does catch a  little on my rough hands.
And now I have a letter to write so I'd best be off.

  4. Sweet treats in the mail...the best kind. I too adore acorns in all their representations. Glad you are safe and sound and your lovely stitching is coming along.

  5. I have the same problem with most threads Margaret. When it comes to winter I have to go into intense moisturising mode and use a mix of things on my fingers.

  6. The white lacework is so beautiful. I'm sure you could get a really good handcream which won't leave a residue. The best one I used was made of hemp from The Body Shop.
