Christmas In March

Yes, my Celtic Christmas from Lavender and Lace arrived.
Thanks to Nikki from Charting Creations for ordering it in special for me and getting it out so quickly. I'd tried to order from another source, who had been out of stock, back in December and was still waiting when Nikki offered to order it for me.
Since I'm doing so little stitching right now this is all I've worked on this month since kit week at the first of the month.
 I know many of you are familiar with the chart so all I'll do is describe the fabric, which is 25ct. Lugana in Vintage Country Mocha that I ordered from 123Stitch. The chart calls for 28 ct. so this was an experiment and I'm thrilled with it. I can see it so easily it is making stitching it a real pleasure. The coverage isn't ideal, but it is perfectly acceptable to me. Honestly it has been the only thing I've wanted to work on.
Since I always love seeing how other people's stitching grows I decided to try to remember to take pictures more often, so you can watch it grow along with me.

Here is my start on it. Forgive the glare on the first picture.
 Terrible picture as it looks nothing like this second picture, but the ones after are (mostly) right.

As I said, with being able to stitch so little right now, I've been working on nothing else.
I am thinking of trying to design a few ornaments for next Christmas. I like the idea of making them personal by making them up myself. I'll let you know if I get around to it, and share any results.

That is really all for now, I hope everyone is enjoying their stitching as much as I am.

Happy stitching everyone.
