Christmas in July

Seven Swans a Swimming by Nora Corbett; 28 ct Springfield Sage linen

So tempting to start beading, but I just have the bottom banner and border left to do. I bought the companion piece Six Geese a Laying, and its beading is gorgeous! Can’t wait to finish this one and start on the next!

Happy Stitching in this hot weather!

Christmas in Spring


I’m really enjoying working on “Welcome to Christmas Town” by Emma Congdon from CrossStitcher magazine, November 2014. The colors are glorious (which of course didn’t pick up on camera), and it’s giving me vintagey seasonal vibes.

Modifications: I am using  DMC E5200 for festive, sparkly snow.
