Christmas time!

Halloween Fairy from CSN Sept 2008 issue
Designer Nora Corbett/Mirabilia
DMC, Kreinik Braids, Mill Hill beads
32 ct Sandpiper BOAF linen
I finished this design a couple of weeks ago but I just have been to busy to post on the blog. In between cookie baking, present wrapping and the dreaded shopping I have been so worn out in the evenings that I have just stitched. Pretty nice actually and I have quite a few finishes!
I will try to snap some pictures tomorrow, it should be good lighting inside after our snowstorm that is going to move through during the night. The kids might even get a snowday the last day of school this year. Bummer with all the winter parties that are planned!!
At our STO group we are all going to start something new on New Years Day. I have been digging through the stash and I think I will start Lavender and Lace's Winter Angel. I think that I stitched one of her designs about 8 years ago and then I got distracted by other designers. This angel has always been one of my favorites and I can't wait to start another big project.
