A Christmas Project


Last year I found the lovely toille shown here at Joann's and couldn't resist it. Found these cute patterns to embroider and I actually have done five of them now. Working toward getting nine done. With the exception of a small wallhanging I did several years ago when redwork became popular again, I hadn't done "fancywork" in a long time except for counted crossstitch. I also want to do the Polka Dot Girls patterns that I bought at the show in Chicago so this is good practice. I am kind of switching to another stitch and getting a little better at it. With these little Christmas blocks, I will either make one 9 block wallhanging or 3 - 3 block hangings. Most likely it will be three smaller hangings which I can give to my three favorite granddaughters! (Click to enlarge) Don't tell them!
