Autumn and Celtic Christmas SAL

I finished this small design last week, it was my entry for the Autumn competition on the "A Crafty Natter" BB, although unfortunately it didn't win. It's one of a series of four seasonal postcards by Passione Ricamo that were once free designs but are, unfortunately, no longer available. I stitched it on 28ct "Bone" Lugana, using the recommended DMC threads.



Because I was busy finishing off my Autumn Postcard last Monday I didn't stitch on Celtic Christmas in our regular Monday SAL. Instead I did two days this week and here is my progress picture.


Thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time to read my blog, and especially to those who have left me such lovely comments! I apologise that I'm still not commenting on your blogs, I haven't been feeling 100% over the last couple of weeks, but I'm starting to feel better now and hope to get back into the swing of blogging very soon.

What a lovely finish, and I'm interested to see how Celtic Christmas will look - I don't think I've seen a blue version of it before.
