Hi Everyone !
I just had to write a quick post and show you my progress on the Swedish Santa picture : )
Look ! ! !
I have finished stitching the first half of all the cross stitches across the blue sky ! ! !
I'm just soo happy about this ; it was this big stretch of sky that put me off this piece ten years ago . . . and now it is done ! Obviously I have to do the other half of the cross stitch but that is as you know a piece of cake - if I hadn't run out of the blue thread that is . . . bummer!
So sadly I have to put the blue sky on hold for a bit until I get my threads . I'm still VERY pleased with myself though lol! I am also pondering what to do with the empty 'snowflake' squares ? In the original chart the squares are just left undone , but I think I'm going to fill them in . Perhaps with satin thread . . . I'll see . . : )
On another note , I have spent this weekend reorganizing my craft space/stash ; a task that was much needed : )
A question for you all , though :
How would YOU decorate/use this wooden candle holder ? ? ?
I've had this one in a box for a few years and I have yet to come up with a good idea of how to decorate it . . !
Any brilliant ideas , anyone ?
Hope you've all had a good weekend filled with some nice stitching !
