Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

Happy Dance with me!

Midnight Journey is finished. I just have my initials and the year to add. They will probably go in the bottom left corner. The "Merry Christmas" message is adapted from Santa and Angels chart by Sandy Orton. The stitched piece is 38 cm (15 inches) wide and 12 cm (5 inches) high. It's just what I need for the space I have in mind. I am very pleased with how it has turned out.
I am so glad I decided to add the extra pair of reindeer. I am almost certain I will print out two verses of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas (the one with the reindeer names, and the final verse) and have them mounted in the frame, one at each end of the stitched piece.
I'll be having a little break from stitching over the next week or so. I'm planning a trip to London in a few months, and it's time to do some work on the itinerary. When I do get back to stitching I have one little Baby's First Christmas ornament to finish, then it's back to HAED Jolly Old fellow for a couple of months.

Wow, it looks wonderful, as I new it would.
I am looking forward to seeing it when framed.
Thank you for the comment today on my blog.
Can't remember if I told you that we also lost our much loved Bichon Miffy last year. I had him for 15yrs. and did not plan on another so soon, We found Molly on a pet rescue website 3 weeks later.
Funny the things that happen in life and I hope I always have a Bichon in mine.
