A White Christmas Ornament

Here is my design for April's White Christmas theme:

(sorry I haven't pressed it yet!) It is Victoria Sampler's Learning Collection kit for Kloster Blocks. It was a fun, quick stitch! I am really enjoying the VS Learning Collection this year and fitting them in with the monthly themes!

Rule Four is ready for April! 

A very good rule that we should try to do and pass on to future generations.

This is how the entire piece looks right now.

On to the next rule...

Thanks for looking and for the

Feeling up to date and super organised!

Wow! I have actually caught up and I have chosen May's design already and plan to start it tomorrow (New Start Sunday) - I am so chuffed!

Here we are:

January:  Fa La La by Little House Needleworks. I did change the right hand carol singer's dress to blue as I thought it would be prettier (and somehow their dresses got longer to hide their boots - but we won't talk about that - lol!)

March: 2015 2018 Years ago by WDC Needlework (from Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments 2015).  I made quite a few alterations to the original design but I am thrilled with how this turned out.

April: Frosty Friends by Blue Ribbon Designs from Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments 2017.

These finishes are all the by-product of being stuck home for five days with Gastric Flu (no fun at all!) so I suppose it just goes to show that there is always a silver lining!


Suzanne's April - Four "Calling" Birds

Hello! I'm posting my April ornament Four "Calling" Birds from Dragon Dreams 12 Dragonlets of Christmas. We are supposed to get a little snow here tomorrow. Spring hasn't quite arrived in my neighborhood.

March - We Three Kings

I'm stitching the Christmas Carol themes this year and the theme for March was We Three Kings.  I had several choices, but I found a group of charts that will match three of the themes so that's the one I chose.

This is the Three Kings chart from Cross Stitch Crazy #222.

Thank you all for the nice words in the February post!
I know, Kay in Australia already has April. Here is March :-)

I wish you beautiful Easter holidays!

I'm looking forward to another xxxxxx!

Tamra's 3 Kings

Surprise!  Prairie Schooler - Book 109 Starry Night.  I have not stitched much with Kreinik before.  A little challenging but the effect in real life is beautiful.  Very sparkly.  32 count antique white Belfast linen with called for threads.
