Christmas in July

Stash 20071406

Today’s mail brought my order from Stitching Bits & Bobs. I bought the Just CrossStitch 10th Anniversary book. Since I don’t have all of the last ten years’ issues, it was well worth the price, I think. It was fun to look through it and see what each designer chose. One thing I really like about it (and I wish they did it on every page), was to show a photograph of the ornament on the same page as the chart. Sometimes seeing an ornament by itself will draw my eye more than it does on a page with several other ornaments. It’s nice as a visual reference also. I also received my straggling threads I needed for Shepherds Watched as well as August and September Woolly Tymes. I stitched a little more on Quaker Garden this morning, so here is my progress so far.

QG 20071406

I’m glad to feel like I am finally making some progress on this one. I am about to outgrow my q-snap that I’ve got it in. Tonight I am stitching on Bay Sampler, and we’ll see what sort of progress I can make on it this weekend. On another Christmas note, I sent in my renewal for Just CrossStitch and should get the ornament issue for doing that. I am anxious to see the next installment of the Shepherd’s Bush ornaments. I am stitching all of these, and so far I have two of them stitched up (Shepherds Watched is the next one to stitch). Here are the two I’ve done so far.

  1. Lovely progress on Quaker Garden Michelle! It’s really starting to grow now (excuse the pun!)

    I love your SB ornaments too – I want to stitch these as one long piece when they’re all released. Are you using the recommended fabric?

  2. All your stitching looks lovely. QG is coming along nicely, I can’t believe how many people are stitching QG. I have it in my stash and by the time I stitch it people will have forgotten all about it.
