Cheryl's Completed Christmas Sampler

I put the finishing touches on my Christmas Sampler on Christmas Eve!   The chart is from Cross Stitcher Magazine (Nov 2017), which was gifted to me last year at Christmas.  I started stitching the sampler in January of this year.

I stitched over all of the snowflakes and snowy areas with a strand of metallic silver thread.  It doesn't show in the photo, but has a nice sparkle to it.  

I stitched the completed sampler onto red felt, added a couple of hanging loops, and did a blanket stitch around all of the edges.

Finally, I took a walk with my sweetie of 26 years around the neighborhood and down to the park to enjoy the holiday lights.  We found the perfect twig to use to hang the sampler.  So, it added a special touch to my Christmas this year and made for a happy memory to enjoy in the future.

I hope all of you made some happy memories this year, too!
