A Sign of Christmas

A Christmas canvas is back from the finisher! One of the two nutcrackers I did with Robin King's stitch guide from her visit to Stitch by Stitch in Larchmont is back from the finisher. I had seen a nutcracker finished as a pillow recently & though it was an interesting idea, especially as I have no needlepointed Christmas pillows. We kept this decorator pillow simple, framed the canvas with a gorgeous red silk; beautiful holiday plaid in the back & as self welt. Love it!! 

Planning on relaxing today, some reading, stitching & TV. It was a rough week at the office, although we did get respite on Thursday to celebrate Frank's birthday. We went to a new restaurant opened by a friend of mine, Siena's Trattoria; the food was fabulous!! 

Enjoy the weekend!
