Just wanted to pop in and show you this mornings finish.
I woke up early and made some Chocolate Coconut coffee and got to work on the last few stitches that this piece needed. I really enjoyed stitching this and just love this new design by With Thy Needle and Thread called St. Noel.
I stitched this on 32 ct R & R Ligonier Latte linen and did some extra staining on it for a more prim look. I stayed with the colors suggested, but I'm not usually fond of stitching with ecru or white, so I changed the pots to the black/brown color. I'm hoping to make this into a cotton filled pillow using the black and green wool that I have it photographed on. I thought of using green wool, but I really liked how this dark color picks up on Santa's mittens and boots and the pots.
Let me know if you agree or if I'm way off base and should go with an army green wool.

We'll I'll be in my studio the rest of the day having fun doing some finishing on the stitching I've completed over the last few weeks. As soon as they're all done I'll get some shots for the blog.

Don't forget, TDIPT Mercantile is having their open house. Pop on over for a chance to win a beautiful handmade item by one of the very talented artists.
Thanks for stopping by and always love to hear from you.
Enjoy the day and happy stitching.
