november 9 - a small finish & a winner

So...I actually stitched a little this weekend! Something I realized while stitching...I am a very slow stitcher, and I also think I enjoy it more when I am that deliberate with each stitch. So often I am rushing to try and get something finished for a deadline, and I don't think I have as much fun with my stitching then.

Anyway, this little piece was stitched for a block exchange with Stitcher's Timeout. The theme is Christmas Trees, and this is an old Bent Creek design called "Happy Christmas". It is stitched on a scrap of shiny aida (there's a name for this type of aida but I can't remember what it is) with sampler and weeks threads.
Sorry the picture is a little bit crooked!

And I did remember to draw a winner for the card making supplies. The winner is Peg C! I will be emailing you for your address and will get this in the mail by the end of the week. I hope you find some things that are useful in the kits.

Thanks for visiting!


  1. A great finish! I find I enjoy it more when I take my time, too, instead of rushing to finish and get to the next project.

  2. Very cute finish. Love this older BC design. Hope you have more enjoyable and relaxing stitches.

  3. A precious little design. I can see why you enjoyed stitching it!

  4. I love that fat little tree, cute!!!

  5. What a great finish! it is just so cute!

  6. Congrats on a cute finish! I agree with you, nothing kills the fun as much as a deadline. I avoid them as much as possible - I have enough of them elsewhere to do that to myself with my hobbies/fun things.

  7. I know the feeling. When I rush with my needlepoint projects, all the fun goes away, but if I just sink in the pleasure of embroidery, it's twice that fun.
