December IHSW

Happy Holidays!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. For IHSW this month, I finished Silent Night by Country Cottage Needleworks. I started this one earlier this month because the design was too cute, and I loved the verse. I did make a few changes to the design. I used gold metallic thread for the stars (because I wanted them sparkly), and I used CC's Spinach for the pine trees and branches instead of the called-for green thread.


It is hard to believe that this is going to be my last finish of 2012! Where has the year gone??

This week I will be doing some Christmas baking- turtle candy and pecan pie. Yum! I also plan to work on Lady Hera because she has been neglected due to all my Christmas stitching. She needs her face stitched :)

Thanks for stopping by and Merry Christmas!

I just bought this last week. It is adorable and you did a great job. I like the idea about using metallics for the stars. I may have to borrow that.
