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.

WIPocalypse - January 9

It's January 9 here, so I'm making a start with my WIPocalypse report.
My current project is HAED Jolly Old Fellow.  I started it in 2009, and have worked on it for  block of time  (several months) each year since then .  I have now finished 14 of the 36 pages.

This is what it looked like when I started stitching this year (on Jan 2):

Here it is with Page 14 completed yesterday (I took it off the frame for this pic):


and this is what it looks like when I finished stitching tonight:

I hope to finish page 15 and make a good start on page 16 in the coming month.

HAEDs are intense. That one looks especially so.

So you keep Christmas in your heart -- and on your stitchy stand -- all the year through! That's a great way to keep a real holiday spirit.

Nice, nice work.

On such a detailed design any finish is a good finish. Great progress, keep it up and we may see it framed sooner than you think it will be.
