On the first day of Christimas...

Hi friends!  I almost have the first day done and I think this may be my most favorite project ever!  And that is saying a lot since earlier today I had the crown, the bird, the top part of the tree and 2 pears all stitched when I realized they were in the wrong spot and had to haul all that work out and I am still loving it.  If anyone is interested, I am stitching this on 40ct Dirty Linen and I am using Classic Colorworks/Crescent Colours Manor Red, The Gentle Art Cucumber and Treasure Braid PB02.  I am also going to need a black later on and I am not sure yet which one I will use, but I will let you all know when I decide.

I also got a few goodies at stitching night tonight.  One of the ladies was given someone's stash who isn't stitching anymore or who was just cleaning some things out and I got 2 small pieces of fabric 25ct dark blue Lugana and a 28ct black evenweave of some sort, a bunch of Mill Hill beads and some spools of Kreinik.  So thank you kind person who donated these things, I will definitely put them to good use! :)

Happy Stitching!


  1. Aren't stitchers most generous people on planet earth? You have made good progress on the first day.

    1. Thanks Mini! Stitchers are very generous!! I think part of it is we appreciate the fabric and threads and everything else so we don't mind sharing as long as we know that they will be used and enjoyed. :)
