1 Xmas Item A Month

Today is our 1 item a month posting day. I was beginning to think i wouldn't get my item made. I finished Sunday night, washed it yesterday morning & then framed it in the afternoon.
I didn't use the red Cosmo thread supplied with the pattern & pre-printed lined. I chose to use a Cottage Garden thread called Hugs N Kisses. Pop over to Narelle's to see what has been made this month

Happy Stitching,

It's really pretty with the variegated red thread. Makes me think I need to look for Cottage Garden for a "Night Before Christmas" pillowcase, by Crabapple Hill, that I'd like to embroider. Your piece is so nice. It looks like a lot of stitching!
