Christmas stitching .....

Since I can't do any sewing  
I've been doing some Christmas stitching ....

 Christmas thyme was found on Pinterest - I liked it - thought about stitching it all in red - decided not to - am pleased with my decision (this doesn't always happen) - I don't know what I'll make with it yet - perhaps a cushion cover - perhaps not - I stitched tried to stitch the words so that they looked primitively done - I thought about colouring in the shapes - decided not to. 

Believe is a Plumcute design - replaced the felt applique with stitching - pieces were a bit small for my clutzy fingers - the original is really cute - would make a nice jar/cushion wrap or tray mat.

The reindeer and tree is Gail Pan's contribution to Winter Wandering - stitched it in the colours she suggested.

These are not as white as they're showing up in the photo - my plan is to antique all of them.

Winter has arrived - we have snow - it was very late arriving this year.


Home for the holidays is a cushion cover I made a few years ago and all is calm and all is bright is a cushion wrap that I made last year.

I'm linking up with Finish it up Friday and  Kathy

sometimes the wrong choices 
bring us to the right places

Beautiful designs and stitching of them. I like how you have included colours in the stitching, I have only really seen items in red work.
