Gifted Gorgeousness SAL January Posting

Gentle Friends, I joined the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL this year started by Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching.....  the piece I'll be working on is "Santa's Village" from CCN.  It was also my New Year start - why not kill two birds with one stone, eh!!  So I finished up Santa's House.  Here's a snap....

... I'll be adding some beads - so I've left off some of the details - and of course I couldn't leave well enough alone and I've changed up some of the DMC suggestions for over dyed choices.......  in fact, just so you know I change my mind way too much, I've restitched the pine needles three times with three different greens until I settled on this green - which is a piney green - at least to me it is.....

Piney Woods is one of my favorites. There's some nice variation with it.

Very nice Edgar. I would love to know the color of the piny green. I am looking for a piny green and they are harder to find that you would imagine. Actually you do know that!

Christine said...

That is lovely, so bright and cheerful

Looks good, Edgar! Santa's Village in on my "to do" wish list...

Looks great! I've got this whole series to stitch too. My plan was to stitch each individually. I stitched the first one on 32 ct and decided it's a little too big to be an ornament for my small tree. Now I have no idea what to do.

Karoline said...

It's looking lovely, great progress

Gillie said...

I think I find green one of the most difficult colours, especially if it's my choice of fabric, which it usually is! Looks great, worth the hassle..

Kay said...

looking good, I must get around to stitching these Christmas designs one day too. I have to admit to always changing things on a design too, I think everything I stitch should be a little unique to me so I alter the design or colours to make it just mine. x

Thank you for taking part in GG this month.
This is such a cute series. I have Poinsettia Place in my rotation currently.
Will this be a gift for someone or was it from someone?
