"A" New Start and a Finish...

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thanks for stopping by and for sharing a minute with me and my Blog.  I only have a couple of little things today.  I started one of my Christmas Stitches -  here is a snap...

"ABC Noel" - from AMBR
stitched on 36 ct LL using the recommended DMC Floss

The letter "A" worked up pretty quickly and so I am imagining that the rest of the Alphabet will also.

I also framed up the finish I had over the weekend - 

"Harvest Blessing" by Mary Beale
from Pocketbook Needlework No. 8 Fall 1990
Stitched on 28ct "Fresco" using the recommended DMC Floss

This is framed in one of the old frames I picked up at an estate sale - and fits it like a glove.  I really enjoyed this stitch - I have other Mary Beale charts that I will have to get to stitching.

There you go sports fans - short and sweet!!  Do stop back again!

Take care,
edgar

Harvest Blessing is so sweet! Beautiful job, Edgar.

I swear you're trying to slip that Mary Beale finish past us. How fast was that?! And it's framed too! Absolutely gorgeous! I really do have to learn to frame myself. Do you use Vonna's method of framing? Such an advantage when you can do it yourself. Love your new start too!
