Progress on Christmas Village

Lesson one is finished and now onto lesson two. Such a fun canvas to stitch. Ruth Schmuff has done an awesome stitch guide for this canvas by Melissa Shirley.

An overview of the canvas. Lesson one included the night sky and walkway.
Lesson two is the house on the left.

Close up of the puffs of smoke. This is a Melissa Shirley canvas with Mystery Class with a Twist by Ruth Schmuff.

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends.

Merry Christmas

Hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas. I have a few minutes before everyone arrives so I wanted to wish you all very Merry Christmas.

All of Santa's presents are under the tree waiting for Jake's arrival. Jake was a very good little boy so Santa was very good to him.

Cannot wait to see his face.

One of my presents - I will be taking this class at Enriched Stitch in Wilton, CT taught by Susan Portra. So excited! I love this piece. Class is April 27 and 28.

Snow Day

We are having about three to four inches of snow today. All the schools are closed, so
I am spending my day stitching. I am working on Melissa Shirley's Christmas Village. Ruth Schmuff is doing this as a Mystery Class With A Twist. I am having such fun stitching this piece.

The blue of the sky is almost done.

Here are some pictures of my Christmas decorations.

My Christmas tree - this year a lot of needlepoint ornaments have been added.

The mantel with my Kelly Clark Nativity with stitch guide by Amy Bunger.

Some pictures of Jake with Santa. Nothing like seeing Christmas through the eyes of a child.
