Preparing For Christmas

This Noel Ornament is by Maryse Dupont of Les Grilles de Maryse. I choose a shiny aida to stitch it on and have used "Crescent Colours" hand dyed threads.
I may make it into a hanging.
I am also stiching another one with a slightly different colour combination

I have not posted in a long while. My Dad was seriously ill in hospital and this led to a change in routine for the family. He has thankfully has recovered, is undergoing physio and life is getting back to normal for me.
My stitching progress has been slow however I could not wait to start the "tree" on this project. I had to see what it would look like. So much so, I have still to complete the very last name.
I am not completely happy with the title, so I may change the colour to the pinker toned thread so it will stand out from the green.

I visited my parents over the last few days, to show Mum the latest progress on this project. So I can now share it here.
I am doing the married names of each person and will put dates and explanations of marriages on the back of the project when it is framed

My Large Stitching project

"Mother's Tree"
Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum

I have chosen to stitch the married names of each woman. Thank you to my Mother for the family history information.
This show my progress in June.
2 more generations to stitch, then onto the tree at the head of the design.
I am stitching in a variegated thread by Jennifer Gail from the UK.

Small Stitches

My current stitching consists of a large project and some smaller ones.
Here are some recently completed small ones. Firstly I made a Pirate card for church stall on green aida. Then I made a book mark. I have yet to finish the bookmark with a backing fabric. I am also going to stitch a pirate phrase on the bookmark
