We're officially in the Christmas season, which makes me beyond giddy. I mean, Thanksgiving is fantastic with all the food and pumpkin pie and all....but, Christmas.
Lately, I've been stitching some seriously big pieces, and I needed a break from all that. So, I decided I needed to incorporate some smalls, like ornaments, into my WIP rotation.
Enter, Plum Street Sampler's fabulous Christmas freebies.
Have you guys gotten on this wagon yet?? Paulette has the first six days posted on her website - she's posting them all as freebies! (fun fact: the twelve days of christmas are actually the twelve days after christmas, leading up to the epiphany, not the days before christmas...) I'm a huge fan of her designs, and these are no exception.
She doesn't have specific colors listed in the charts, she just says to use red, green, gold, and black. This one only calls for red and green, so I used the same two I used for Quaker Christmas II - Currant and Blue Spruce. They're superb Christmas colors, and I have a ton of them left over, so it's a great excuse to use up some thread in my stash!
I'm so far behind already, but Christmas comes every year, so here's hoping I can get all twelve all done by next Christmas!
