Christmas Stitching 2008 is finished

And here they are - the last of my 2008 Christmas projects. Christmas stitching is always such fun that I almost feel like starting another one. However, I think I'll restrain myself and work on WIP's instead. Before you know it 01/01/09 will arrive and it will be time for a new start - yup a new Christmas piece.

These bookmarks were a fun and quick stitch and no finish-finishing!!

adapted from 'Gingham Christmas' by Just Nan

'Christmas Tree' by Scandinavian Stitches
from 2007 JCS Christmas Ornaments

And here is the grand Christmas finale for 2008. This was stitched for a dear friend who doesn't have a Christmas fob. Hope she likes it as I loved stitching it for her.

'Cranberry Christmas' by Prairie Schooler, Inc.
from 2007 JCS Christmas Ornaments
stitched 1/2 on 32 ct platinum evenweave

There really is some more pre-Christmas work to be done as three (oops - make that four) Christmas pieces which I stitched in 2007 still haven't been framed. It would be so nice to have them on our Christmas wall this year. But as Scarlett O'Hara would say "I'll think about that tomorrow". Now I'm headed to the kitchen to put the finishing touches on a yummy spaghetti dinner. Then tonight - feet up, a cup of coffee at my side and STITCHING!!

Dinner and then stitching sounds like a perfect evening! Your holiday pieces are beautiful. I really love the fob from PS Cranberry Christmas. Yes, go ahead and enter me. I love any pretty pieces made by stitching friends. Do you have any special plans for tonight (Pakjesavond)?

Hugs en groetjes ~
