Happy Dancing @ Christmas

I am sooooooooooooooooo pleased with my latest finish - I saw it when browsing Sew and So and fell in love with it. I rarely by a chart on impulse and stitch it straight away but I just couldn't resisit lol  Maybe it was fate becuase this piece certainly kept me company over recent weeks :)

Sue Hillis 'Christmas Calories'

Fabric : 28ct Linen (blush)
Thread : DMC stranded cotton
I spent a lovely afternoon yesterday sorting out my stitching bags and box. I have found a few WIPs which I am going to try to finish in 2011. I also found a couple of quaker designs so I can join in the Stitch and Stash Quaker SAL and I sorted out all my LHN charts that I was supposed to stitch this year - oops.

I have two RRs to kit up and I know what I want to do for the church tree next year so I am going to look for charts and get ready. Ileft it a little late this year but thankfully the tree turned out just fine. In case you missed my last blog here's the link to my album with the Christmas Tree Festival pictures.

Keep warm x x x
