Stitching Post, Blessings Be Thine 1020

From a week ago, I have started stitching after my son slept at night.
And now I have been working on "Blessings Be Thine" © Blackbird Designs, preparing for Christmas!

Sorry for this wrinkled photo, :( Iron is yet somewhere in the box, lol
You finally knew how I am lazy as it has been coming out on latest posts, lol
I love this very beautiful design, it's so fun to stitch!

Here is a photo of my new project which goes on as SAL with
Carol R.
We are going to do private SAL for "Quaker Faith Hope Love" © Midnight Stitching.


I chose GAST (Cranberry, Oatmeal) and Crescent Colours (Tartan Plaid) on 40ct Wichelt Linen : Sandstone.
As I'm going to stitch this on 40ct, it must be very small, but I love this linen so much, I wanted to stitch this beautiful design on this.


So let's see how it will turn out at the end!
I found a nice framer online, so I will order frames for both of these designs when I completed.

Great start on Blessings Be Thine - I am sure this will be finished long before Christmas.

Love the colours you have chosen for our Quaker SAL - they look good against the Sandstone linen.
