Merry Christmas

I'm finishing off this year with a little flurry of finishes!

First is Mary's Sampler from Plum Street Samplers.  I thoroughly enjoyed stitching this SAL from Paulette. I'm not sure how I will 'finish' it yet may be a flat fold, we'll see how the inspiration strikes when I get there.

Mary's Sampler copyright Plum Street Samplers 2013
stitched on 36count Silkweaver Cameo linen with overdyed cottons

I did a small ornament exchange this year with a couple of friends.  I was sending to Lindsay, so I decided to stitch her the Dragon Dreams design in this years Just Cross Stitch Ornament Edition. My own photo of it was terrible so I've had to borrow Lindsays.

stitched using the recommended materials

I received this gorgeous ornament from Kate




As I think it very unlikely that I will get to update again before Christmas I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my readers a very Merry Christmas and I hope you all have lovely holidays

Lovely stitching! I love the photo of the tree and, for a book lover, the massive bookcases behind it!

Have a Merry Christmas, Karoline!

Mary's Sampler is lovely Karoline.
Makes me wish I'd stitched it.
Too late for this year now :(
Your tree looks lovely.
Happy Christmas and best wishes for 2014.

I'm like Melissa, when I see a wall covered with book cases I want to see all the different books in there, lol.
Very nice finishes, Karoline.
