I have been doing quite a bit of stitching in the last three weeks since returning from my holiday. I didn't do any in the week before I went away or whilst I was away. Here's a photo of my progress on Prairie Schooler's December. As usual I'm really enjoying working on this one, despite being without my stitching lamp for a week as the bulb had blown. I had to use another lamp which lights my work from the side instead of overhead and I was getting a lot of shadows cast by my hand. I was also stitching with white thread on antique white fabric. I don't think I'm going to get this done for this coming Christmas, especially as I have to devote more time to gift stitching.
Despite my saying that I wasn't going to do any more exchanges for a while I just couldn't resist signing up for round 4 of the Year Long Prairie Schooler exchange. My partner was Laurence and as we are having postal strikes here in the U.K. I decided to get organised and stitch and send the exchange off before they started. I stitched two small ornaments, the fox from PS's new book "Fall Fields" and the Santa from "Christmas Day". Both are stitched on antique white 32ct Jobelan fabric using the recommended DMC threads. I'm pleased to say that they arrived safely with Laurence and that she liked them.
Many thanks for visiting my blog and for all the lovely comments that you leave.
