A SAL Finish and a Recipe

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you all so much for the great comments - I think it has been decided - I'm gonna call him Peanut the Christmas Squirrel -  sitting on the letter "S" - That totally made the morning!!  Now, to market him to the masses and make a bazillion buckaroos!!!  :)

Last night I finished up the wonderful Mystery SAL that Carol R was having over at iStitch.  
Here is my version....


I used HDF silk - Oxblood and Blueberry Soup 
stitched on a mystery piece of 32ct Sand coloured linen

It was a great piece to work on.  Thank you so much carol for putting it all together and keeping us motivated and stitching!!!

I also posted at Blacksheep bakes the recipe for the Holiday Gingerbread I baked up this weekend.  I included the frosting recipe I used, but don't feel constrained to it and use whatever or none if you wish!!  You can click HERE to get there.

That's about it for today sports fans.  I must thank everyone again for stopping by, also to my New Followers and my Old Followers....  I am thinking I need to have a Gift-a-Way for the Holidays!!!  Stop by again soon!

Take care,
edgar

Your SAL piece turned out lovely. Have you decided on the final finish? Was it meant to be a box topper? Thanks for all the luscious recipes.
