Christmas in July 2020

Hope your day is going well.

Some Christmas stitching today.
One ornament I have stitched last year and other ornament I started July first. It’s too hot here so the finish took me so long…till yesterday… well, almost finished…

It is the 2018 Santa by The Prairie Schooler.
Stitched on 40 count Moka Newcastle linen with the recommended DMC threads.

Santa by The Prairie Schooler from the book 48, A Christmas Visit.
Stitched on 40 count Vintage Country Mocha linen with the recommended DMC threads. I added some red beads by Mill Hill.

I had this idea for some time, but it was more for Halloween ornaments. Inspired by a finish that I saw a long time ago on a French cross stitch blog, here is my finish:

The ornaments will hang on the board, but I didn’t really like the red pins, I’m thinking more about some cork pins and there’s also a ribbon on the wreath missing… I hope you liked them!

Thank you so much for visiting! Be safe! Happy stitching!
