Now, we need to find a matte for it, so my husband can make a nice frame for it.
|complete project...ready to mat & frame|

The pattern is called Spirit of Christmas. The pattern was in the January 2010 issue of Cross Stitch and Needlework magazine. It is stitched on 28 ct. Queen Annes Lace Jobelan, using The Thread Gatherers Silk N Colors floss. I did add gold Kreinik to the star...just felt it needed some shine to it!!! I am adding a close up picture of the star & the top of the piece for detail purposes...
All of the tote bags were a HUGE hit....I think my son was just as happy as his boys, because now he can keep track of who is taking what car when they go anywhere....he does a bag check as they leave & as they get back from anywhere.
I have decided to join Vickie's UFO blog..mine are more WIP pieces, but some are UFO's. I will be updating on that blog later today. I was hoping for a clear, bright day for pictures, but no luck....it is overcast & rainy..
You may notice at the top of my blog, there is a new email address for me.....I found that I couldn't use my normal email address to join any of the 'specialty blogs' like the one Vickie is hosting. So, she suggested I open a GMail account & waalaa....it worked.
I would like to take the opportunity here at the end of the year to wish each & every one of you a Very Happy New Year. Thank you for your continued support thru 2011 & I hope you will continue to visit in 2012....
