I've taken advantage of the sun today to snap some photos of recent finishes. Up to now, it's been very gloomy and I've not been able to do so.

I always look forward to stitching Nan's designs. This one just says "Christmas" to me!!!
Partridge in a Pear Tree
40 count heritage Newcastle linen from Picture This Plus
The 2012 Just Cross Stitch Special Christmas Issue had such pretty ornament this year. This is from this issue. Each year I stitch an ornament from the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas". I'm hoping to have a tree full of them some day.

Oh my goodness. As soon as I saw this design, I knew I had to stitch it! I think that it's just lovely and I plan on keeping it out all year!!! Here's the back:
The Marking Samplar
A Christmas Sampler

Belle Soie Berry Cobbler
Don't you love these little sampler ornaments! I'd love a collection of these, as well!
Baby, It's Cold Outside
35 count Weeks Cocoa
I hesitated to share this picture with you because it just doesn't do justice to the piece. The Coco fabric is a rich color with red modeling throughout that works perfectly back to the Pomegranate color of the house.
It was a really fun piece to stitch.
Lastly, it wouldn't be a post without a picture of my latest Word Play. This is just the cutest piece. I have one more to go and that's January. I think I'm going to miss stitching this series every month.
I have a few more surprises and hopefully will be able to post before the end of the year. Until then, I'm wishing you and yours the merriest of holidays.
