Thanks for letting me play with you on this great blog. I have finally a finished Christmas stitch to share - these pics are even going onto the AYL Xmas SAL blog before "my own" blog (which is One Stitch Closer to Nirvana, please come and visit anytime - PR - I know, I am shameless...).
This piece is the Noel Quadrielle by Sweetheart Tree. I fell in love with pretty much all the TST quadrielles, but this one was the first (and so far only) one I have stitched.
It comes as a kit with pretty much everything you need, except for the streamers. The instructions are pretty good, so most any level of stitcher should be able to finish it, with just a pinch of patience and daring.
I was a bit surprised that I ran out of one type of beads, but it was the creme ones, so I substituted the missing ones from my stash (not a match, but I doubt that anyone can tell...)
Well, I'd better stop babbling and just give you the pics, LOL! Here we go:
Merry Christmas Everyone!

My ornament is from Prairie Schooler's Cranberry Christmas, stitched on 32 ct. lambswool with dmc and backed with the fabric you see under it. I don't know I just went wild finishing it. I loved the greens that match both the trees and the ric-rac, the purple bees and I liked the gold/yellow stars.
Anyway, here it is, such as it is :)

I just wanted to check in to see how everyone was doing on their January stitching goals. I've heard many of you say you are going to stitch at least one ornament a month.
It is hard to believe that January is over. So..............................Did you stitch that ornament for January.
We'd love to see it.
I hope that everyone in the Midwest is hunkered down for the Winter storm in our midst.
Maybe the snow will put you in a Christmas stitchin' mood :-)
Be safe and stay warm,

Thanks so much for letting me join!
I'm Tama, and this year I'm trying to stitch all of these (hope the pic doesn't come out too big)
or at least, as many as I can. I've finished one so far:
And have another part of the way done. It's the Christmas Tree one in the second-to-bottom row. Last year I finished quite a few ornaments, but only 14 or so were Christmas ornaments. I'm hoping to do much better this year!
