Christmas is Forever.

Here’s how far I got with Christmas is Forever before I put it aside to start on Still Waters, which I’m SALing with Melissa late last night. DH has a friend visiting from Australia so I joined them for dinner last night and got home near midnight, which didn’t leave much time for Still Waters. I’m going to cheat a bit and play catch-up this weekend though. In the meantime, here’s Christmas is Forever. 

Taken at night, so the colour is not as accurate as the next picture.

 

Taken this morning, but I was too lazy to adjust the levels much. Pardon the creases!

I have been browsing the Needlework Show but nothing screams “buy me!” so I don’t think I will be ordering anything. I do like some of the reproduction samplers, but not enough to get them. What are your favourites from the show?

Some stash photos.

These are a few of the designs that I have all kitted up and ready to go, presented here for your viewing pleasure. :)

The Primitive Needle, Earth Sampler

As you probably might guess, I’ve really developed a thing for The Primitive Needle designs of late! Next up, another festive design. This is Lizzie Kate’s Christmas Double-Flips series, with recommended linen and threads.

Other designs that I’m in the process of kitting up are Shores of Hawk Run Hollow and Permin’s Adam and Eve, which comes as a kit but I hate the grey floss and the crunchy linen it comes with. I’m also really pleased to say (although I should be embarrassed and guilty) that I bought Sail Away after hemming and hawing over it! The exchange rate makes it a really good deal – after conversion, I paid the equivalent of US$49 when the normal retail price is US$60. I just couldn’t pass it up, and I can’t wait for it to arrive. Margaret at The Crewel Gobelin was so funny – she actually asked me if I’d finished SB’s Family Sampler which I purchased from her just a couple of weeks ago. I told her that one can never have too much stash! I’m sure you’ll agree with me!
