I promised myself I would stitch something special, just for me, for Christmas. I poked around for awhile and stumbled across this beautiful piece, Sew Noel. I loved the contrast between the pure white and bright red and especially liked that it had a church on it. It was a joy to stitch; minimal color changes! I stitched it on white linen with Splendor silk thread in #S820. I did the finishing as a Heavy Weight using the little book, The Heavy Weight, by Judy O'Dell of Just a Thought. The designer of Sew Noel, Carol, is from England. Her blog, Istitchaholic.blogspot.com, (see my side bar) is delightful. She has a series of patterns that she designs as PDF files for $4.00. She even has some freebies with a purchase that go along with the Sew... series. I have all of them and will continue to buy them as she designs them. I really like her style.
