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.

I'm getting excited ..

I have finished pages 29 and 30 of my HAED Jolly Old Fellow.  Yay!  It's now almost 94% finished!!

Sorry about the wonky pic - I had the fabric draped over the back of the lounge chair for the photo, as you can probably see!

I now have just six pages to stitch.  But the good news (for me) is that the pages are just 31 stitches high, not the usual 99 stitches.  And page 36 is just 14 stitches wide.  So, really in all it's only equivalent to less than two full pages of stitching.  So, I am on track to finish JOF and have it at the framer by the end of July.  There'll be happy dancing at my home when that happens!

He is stunning. You will soon be finished - can't wait to see him framed. He may well be my next start.
