What's NOT In My Hoop

Santa's Village

Santa's Village is complete!
Super Adorable.
Stitched on 32ct lambswool linen.
I've changed a few things like adding a dove to month 3 and making my elf look like 'Buddy' from the movie "Elf" in month 11.
But mostly I used the recommended threads.

The design /pattern is from Country Cottage Needleworks.
There is a new series coming the end of this month and I can't wait..."Frosty Forest".
I'm an animal lover and I can't wait to stitch up cute little woodland creatures.
I am secretly wishing / hoping for lots birds and a frog,
but I'm not holding my breath on the frog since it is called 'FROSTY Forest'... the frogs are probably hibernating.
Until it comes out I'll be stitching up some Christmas gifts. I'll post photos of those after they've been given out.  I am working on an adorable gift for my daughter and I don't think she reads my blog... so in a few days I will post pictures of that.

Happy Stitching

Congratulations!!! It is beautiful. That new series looks tempting, but I won't commit to it until I'm certain there'll be a squirrel! :)

Congratulations on your finish! It looks beautiful!

I'm almost finished with mine, too. I just have a tiny bit to finish on the last one and then sew on all the buttons. I should be done by the end of the weekend and then it's off to the framer. I can't wait!

Are you getting yours framed, too?

Barb said...

Beautiful Amy!! You should be proud of such a large project. Now it will be wonderful for Christmas!!

Manuela said...

Congratulation. Your Santa's Village looks so beautiful. Will you frame it?

Greetings, Manuela

Congratulations on a beautiful finish. Unfortunately I'm still waiting on part 12, so mine won't be finished yet.

Congratulatons on your finish! It turned out fabulous; I like your elf! Will you be stitching Frosty Forest on one large piece of fabric or individually? Will you be using the called for pearl gray fabric?

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
