Wow, July is almost over, which means Christmas is right around the corner. Thanks Heavens Heather at Stitching Lotus encouraged us to stitch Christmasy this month. I had fun with a few things.
The above is the Winterbird Wreath Cross Stitch Kit by Mill Hill. I bought a couple of these kits last year and decided to give one a try. It was quick to stitch and I love how the beads add such detail.
Despite the fact that this looks like a Christmas card, it's actually a birthday card for a friend that looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooves penguins. I had to include it in the Christmas Smalls, cause her birthday is July 30.
I also stitched the Winter Woods kit by Mill Hill, but haven't taken a picture of it yet.
And another Mill Hill kit, the Haunted Library. I am slowly but surely getting the "haunted building collection" completed and hope to turn the wall adjacent to our stairwell into a "village". I love Mill Hill kits.
And last but not least, I stitched a sea lion card for a co-worker that loves sea lions. This is the first time I have given her a birthday card and I think she will be very surprised. She turns 30 at the end of August and is going through a divorce and is having a tough time of it.
Happy Stitching everyone!
