Final Festive Finish


designs by Stacy Nash Primitives
"Country Sampler Snowed In"
"Country Sampler Silent Night"
club kits from the Stacy Nash club through Country Sampler

Sorry, the quality of these photos is not as good as I would like, but the best I could get on a grey snowy day...
This is a combination of club kits from 2013 and 2012. I thought they would look so nice together. So I decided to stitch them on all the same fabric with the same threads and finish them alike.
Now I think that they make a nice set...


I love stitching snowflakes so much that I decided to omit a bird motif and add more snowflakes.
you can see the original here.


I waffled for a few days whether I should use white rickrack or red, but I decided that the red sets the design off better.


Tomorrow the weatherman says the sun will come out later in the afternoon. I might try to get some better photos then...

I have a few snowmen projects that I am going to try to finish and then move on to Valentines.

And tomorrow while doing laundry, I will try to get to phase two of cleaning Craft Corner ~ before the Inspector General comments again ;)

Beautiful stitches! We used to call my hubby "fireman Bob" because every little light, storage, etc I brought home, he would "inspect" and say whether or not I was able to use/keep it... lol!

Love your finishes -- just not enough hours in the day to stitch and quilt.

Oh my I love those - how sweet all 3 of them are together - great idea. This is why I want to learn how to cross stitch on linen.
