Kaye: January Post

 Hello Lovely Christmas Elves, 

Well, I attempted to finish something for all four themes this month but only had success with two of them. 😢

For Theme One, I found this great design on Etsy by Keenstitch, which you can find here.  It has been a lot of stitching of red happening (hence my only finishing two themes in January) but the next eleven months will be a breeze!

My other finish is for Theme Three: Just CrossStitch Christmas Ornament Magazine for 2018.  The design which I chose was "Noel" by JBW Designs on p.22 of the magazine. I used my own choice of floss and added some beading to the wreath.  The ribbon that I used to trim it is actually metallic, so the finished piece has quite a nice shine to it.

I did begin my stitching for Theme Four: "A Christmas Carol" - Tiny Tim.  I found this gorgeous design on Etsy by Prim Stitcher Shoppe, which you can find here.

This is how much I have stitched of the design so far: 

And this is what the finished design will eventually look like:

Finally, for Theme Two: "Christmas Songs" - The Little Drummer Boy, I have kitted up (I had to wait for the pattern to arrive from the U.S.) another JBW Design: Sing a Song of Christmas XI: Little Drummer Boy.

So, hopefully both of these will make a late appearance sometime this year - 🤣🤣🤣

Best of luck with all of your Christmas stitching this year.

Beautiful projects! I wish we could see that metallic trim in person. I bet it is gorgeous! And I love that you shared your started projects. I now have a bigger wishlist :)

Thanks, Suzanne, too ambitious, I think!

Great work, I looked up the Keen Stitch design and it will make life much easier for the next 11 months!
