Christmas Stitching

This is going to be my Christmas project this year. I don`t expect to have it finished by the 25th, but I like working on something seasonal at Christmastime.

I had wanted to do this one for a few years now, and actually thought I had bought the pattern, but I hadn`t, so I picked it up this summer. I love the look of hardanger on a sampler done as a bottom edge like this. I can`t wait to get started.

That's beautiful! Hardanger scares me to bits.

Beautiful! I think Emie Bishop is one of the most talented hardanger designers around! I have Warm Christmas Wishes done for my Christmas walls :)

Her instructions are excellent so even if you've not tried hardanger before you should have no trouble as long as you read them carefully!
