This is my last release for the year, and it will be out some time in the middle of this month. I hope you all like it! Because I'm always sending out my patterns to model stitchers at the eleventh hour, there is often too little time to have things framed. But I do love this as a little pillow, as the model stitcher suggested it be made into (thank you, Rindy!), along with its charming rusty bells sewn along the bottom. (My mother has decided she'll still be framing her piece, however, as soon as she's finished stitching it!)
Here is some information you'll need, should you choose to stitch Farmstead Christmas:
Stitch count: 132 x 116
Fabric used: Lakeside Linens' 36 ct. Vintage Wood Smoke
Threads: Needlepoint Inc. silks in 993, 966, 334, 208, 203, 346, 974, and 991.
I hope you're enjoying the Christmas season so far. I'm usually just beginning my shopping at about this time, but believe it or not, I'm finished! This is a first for me, and I can't believe it! But knowing how I am, I'll spend the month basking in my own glory for having finished my shopping early, so that by the time Christmas Eve rolls around, I'll suddenly remember that it all still needs to be wrapped!
An early Merry Christmas to you all!
