This Christmas I have three cross stitched gifts to give. I had two hanging around that I had completed last year and didn’t frame. I finished 1994 Christmas Madonna by Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum on September 21, 2006.
I put it in an oval frame and am giving it to my grandmother. I didn’t get a picture of it framed, but I probably will after she opens it.
I finished 2000 Christmas Angel by Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum and will be giving it to my cousin Erica.
I once again didn’t get a pic of the framed piece, but will get one later. I got a lot of practice framing though. Mounting the fabric on the foam core with t-pins and then lacing the backs before removing the pins.
I was focusing on Heirloom Christmas Sampler, but on the last row I ran out of soie perlee and had to order some. It will take a couple of weeks before that gets here.
It’s kind of frustrating but on the bright side it won’t take long to complete once the soie perlee does get here.
In the meantime I have picked Father Christmas with Toys back up. It’s a Heaven and Earth deisgn. I started it last year but haven’t put much time into it for a few months. Here is my progress so far.
It wasn’t until I was standing back to take the picture that I could get a sense of the snow and tops of the trees.
My Grandmother arrived yesterday and is spending today with her sister. Tomorrow I have to work in the morning and then the afternoon will be taken up by getting presents over to my mothers and preparing our Christmas Eve dinner of lobster and shrimp. On the 27th I’ll be going over to Charlottetown, PEI and spending a few days with my cousins.
