Merry Christmas!

..and one last Happy Dance for 2007!

Blackbird Designs Blessings Be Thine.
Stitched on Korry's Special Blend R&R Linen.

Sorry about the squint scan. I'm not even going to attempt a photo as it's so dreary outside. And COLD! Oh-my-gosh, I can't remember it being as cold as this for a long time. We normally get fairly mild winters here in Scotland.

I can't believe it took me 4 weeks to stitch this. When you consider this has been the ONLY stitching project I've been working on, that's just sad! I guess it's a busy time of the year though, and it's luck that I've managed what I have. It was lovely to stitch, as are all of Blackbird Designs charts. I think it's safe to say they're one of my favourite designers. :)

I know I've not posted as often in 2007 as I did the previous year, and I've not been as good as leaving comments on everyones blogs regularly as I used to either (which is something I feel quite bad about)... but do know that I'm always reading your blogs and being inspired by you. We have such a wonderful little community - I know I for one would probably stitch much less without you all.

As this is likely to be my last post before the 25th, I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Whatever you're doing, I hope you have a peaceful and happy holiday.
