Stitching Complete

Hello my friends.
So pleased to join in with this years SAL.
I thought that I would have had my cushion made but have run out of time.
My Mum had surgery to remove cancer from her left wrist,
so my turn to help her now she is home.
I`m to stay with her for a few days and leave in the morning.


My finished `Christmas Wishes` stitching.
The colours I used where:
Sampler threads Old Red Paint for surround,tree trunks and her legs.
Cottage Garden Thread Dandelion for stars plus crosses. 
 High Country for trees and frame round wording and collar.
Auriril # 12 2260 for colonial knots on dress,shoes,hat and arms. 
Weeks Dye Works Bluecoat Red for dress.


I have put a peek a boo border first then 
a red star print and finally the stripe.


The piping will add the final touch to my cushion.
This I will show completed at next posting.
I have my `Natures Journey` pattern 
and looking though my fabrics 
ready to start when come home again.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.
