Holiday Stitching

My fingers have been busy and I have some pics to show
you of the pieces I've just finished stitching.
This is a design I created last year around this time.  When I first stitched 
it last year I did it in blues and browns, but this year I wanted
 to stitch it again in traditional colors.  I added a few more snowflakes
this time and I think I prefer it in these colors.  
This will be a pinkeep.  I'll back it in some homespun, stuff it
and trim it with tinsel.  I love the look of tinsel trim and can't
wait to see how it looks on this.

Here's last years version in the blues and browns.

I also did up a very simple design using the words
"Merry Christmas"
I love the simplicity of it.  I stitched this on prairie cloth using 
Victorian Motto Sampler thread.  You should try them if you haven't already.
Nancy has some really beautiful colors that you'll find yourself drawn to over 
and over again.
I hope to make this into a hanging pinkeep.  I think this one will look cute with a
few rusty jingle bells on it.
Well, I hope everyone is having a wonderful week.  I'm looking forward
to another stitching weekend.  So much to get done for my
TDIPT listing on the 15th.

Happy Stitching,
