Winter is Coming!

Well.... not so much in Phoenix really, but we seem to have gotten away from 100+ temps now so I guess technically, winter is coming.




I finished up this cute wood pallet easel using Country Cottage Needlework's Seasonal Celebrations: Winter. I chose to only stitch the top (the bottom has winter-themed words) so that it would fit perfectly on this easel. As you can see I changed nearly every color because I wanted a little more oomph!

Seasonal Celebrations - Winter - Cross Stitch Pattern

Then I finished up some more of Robin's ornaments. Robin had been kind enough to trust me with her stitching and I swear the more stitching she sends, the harder it is to send it back to her. This batch is one of my favorites. I want a tree full of these!


I love how different each one is. And I love how she switches up her fabrics and colors. She is a perfect stitcher.
