It's Christmas time.....

 Hi everyone,

Thursday night was our Guild Christmas party and the time we exchange hand made christmas gifts. First we opened the gifts sent from England from our friends at "The Common Stitch".
Wow! Fantastic as always. Every package was a new surprise. Take a peek.

We all brought a platter of food goodies to share and then it was time to open the gifts from our group guild members.

Graphic Expressions ANG class piece finish

Hi everyone,

The backorder threads arrived from Fireside Stitchery and I was able to complete the second of my seminar class pieces. I did alter the design a little and substituted a thread as one has been discontinued. I hope Sue approves. Anne agreed that I could show her red/green version, so here it is.

This was fun to stitch and grew very quickly. The photo is a little pale but the true colours are a very vibrant lime and 3 shades of glue/green. Pretty.........

Well I am off to complete some stitch diagrams and finish off a small linen piece which is half way through the design stage.
Happy stitching , bye for now, Carol
