THE 5TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS / 5 GOLD RINGS
I'm a little late starting this one, but it will be easy to finish.
My husband really wanted wanted me to make the kitty orange like our sweet kitten. But he wanted me to do it in shades of Pumpkin. Not a chance! I'm using shades of Copper, with a Dark Red Copper as my outlining color.

I am stitching Joan Elliott's 12 Days of Christmas for the blog this year and have reached everyone's favourite day, sung with gusto by school children everywhere.

I'm late, but I did get my 4th Day done.
And as you can see, a few stitches of 5th Day as well.
Here's how the whole project looks at the moment. The fabric colour in the pictures is terrible - it's really a lovely opalescent green.
The row I'm on will have 4, 5 and 6, then I'll drop down and put 7 - 10, then drop again and centre 11 and 12. Hopefully it will have something like a Christmas tree shape when I'm done.
I also want to say I'm sorry I seem to have disappeared from the blogging world, but I'm dealing with a number of health issues and my energy levels are very low. Hopefully I will be back soon.

Hello my lovely Santa's Elves,
As you all love Christmas stitching as much as I do, I thought that you might be interested in taking part in the Christmas in July Exchange which I am hosting on my personal blog, Kitten Stitching.

4th Day of Christmas
By Margaret Sherry
This month is moving way too fast. I'm a full week behind on all of my stitching. This lady is awesome! ! Like my other days she is outlined in darker shades of the colors used. I of course made mistakes, but some I just rolled with.
For instance, I had stitched the perfect 4. At least I thought that I had. As I was organizing my outline colors, I realized I had stitched it in the wrong color. Then I discovered I had used the shade for my number for the legs. I already had a bad headache, but really wanted to try to finish my outlining. I left the color of the legs alone. I frogged the number, and stitched it in the shade that was for the legs. Yes, I switched them. Of course between my head pounding, and my husband distracting me, I goofed stitching the number. I just left it, and evened it out before adding the backstitching.
I'm happy with her. She stitched up so fast, and has style. I wanted to give these some individuality, and she has it!
Happy Stitching, and may the frogs stay far away!

I have been a bit behind on all my Twelve Days stitching but now I am all caught up and even ahead! Yay!
I have finished Day Three: Three French Hens for March.
... and Day Five: Five Gold rings for May (although to be fair, this block was finished in January for a FB challenge).
