So this weekend saw the first of my seven Summer Of New Starts. I was feeling in a Christmassy mood so chose a Christmassy project - not that I got far enough into it to stitch the Christmassy bit, but the thought was there!
I must say I really really enjoyed stitching a new project and, as a result, made a fairly good start on the sky:
Stitch count 56 wide by 56 high
Stitched on 16ct Antique White aida 2 over 1
Stitching time to date - 3 hours 25 minutes
There are four in this set and this is what they'll look like when (eventually) finished:
This project now gets put away, but when it reappears I plan to stitch the snow and the tree in the new Etoile thread and use beads for the baubles. I think you'll agree there's no harm in a bit of bling at Christmas?!
I'll be back this time next week for the second of my Summer Of New Starts, but between now and then I've plenty of other stitching I need to do!
