I can finally show you what the Stitching Group got for Christmas. We have the Christmas Party on January 2, this year. It is usually so crazy at the holidays we usually decide to wait until after Christmas to do it. This year's pattern was the Valentine Sampler from With Thy Needle and Thread. It was suppose to be mounted on a Whitman Sampler Heart box. Paint just doesn't stick to those boxes. They probably really need a coat of gesso to prime them. I had all the stitching done quite early in the year but, with the box issue things changed. I had to buy some more boxes in October.
The pattern had additional pieces. These are the needle cases.
Hope everyone had a fun New Years. We had a good day. We were able to get a replacement part for the oven. I was able to roast the cornish game hens. I did a lot of cooking. Buster enjoyed his peach pancake today for his New Years treat. I didn't get the stitching done I wanted to. The finishing will probably have to wait until the weekend. Alas, one more Christmas post. It's okay, still the season until the decorations come down. Since we put them up late, we keep them up later.
Keep on Stitching
