Another quick Christmas finish

Hello everyone! This year I seem to be doing small Christmas pieces with the exception of finishing up Three Kings which is on it's way to my brother's now. That piece and Bethlehem went out there as my sister-in-law liked them. I wasn't going to do anything with them anyway so I was happy to send them out there.

I loved doing this quick Merry Christmas piece. It was a lot of fun to do. By doing these small pieces it gets me to the 50 challenge. Yes I had to start over, but now have about 7 or 8 pieces toward it so it's a good start. Maybe by doing these smaller peices I'll actually make it to 50 without buying anything. I've been trying for 5 years now and closest I came was 22.

It doesn't look like we will have a white Christmas! It doesn't seem like Christmas without snow. We got a little bit during the night but not much and they say it will be gone by Monday. Oh well....maybe we'll have a very mild winter, that would be nice.

I have found it best to add pieces at the bottom of the post. When I do it on top they don't seem to post.

Well....I'm going to go get my mail, do dishes and then pick another piece to start tomorrow. Until next time Happy Stitching!

Beautiful ornaments. Not to much time left before the big day.

That is a really cute piece. Could you tell me the designer or where you got it - I would love to stitch it!

Thank you Missy and Beth. The designer is Barbara & Cheryl and the book was Seasons Greetings. I don't think Barbara and Cheryl are designing anymore and I doubt the book is still in print it was an old book.

Congrats on your finish, Barb. We have very little snow on the group also. Forecasters are calling for some tonight, but not much. It might be the first time I've ever had a Christmas without snow.
