Christmas-y Stitching

I love this time of the year. December is definitely one of my favourite months. I normally do the majority (if not all) of my Christmas shopping in November, so that I can enjoy December without the stress of figuring out what presents to buy everyone! I much prefer to pick up gifts when I come across something I like for someone anyway, rather than feeling pressured to buy something just for the sake of it because time is running out.

And of course December is also a favourite month for stitching, when time allows. I got a head start on my Christmas stitching this year with a couple of finishes already!

Christmas Tea by Plum Street Samplers
Fabric: 40-Count Vintage River Willow (Lakeside Linens)
Stitched with the recommended Belle Soie Silk (lovely silks!)


Yule Sampler by The Primitive Needle
Fabric: 40-Count Heritage Linen (Picture This Plus)
Stitched with the recommended Crescent Colours


I hope everyone is having a good start to the upcoming holiday season. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it very much. :-)

Well well well, somebody's been busily stitching away! They're both absolutely gorgeous, congratulations.

I wish I were so well organized with my stitching AND with my shopping! There's not just Xmas, 2 of the 3 nieces have BIRTHDAYS!! in this period too, groan.

I LOVE both your finishes, but especially Christmas Tea. I was trying to find out who'd designed that chart a while ago - I knew I'd seen it and loved it but all I could remember was cranberry tea! :)
