Merry Christmas Garden!

Here's my latest progress on Christmas Garden.  She's coming along so nicely if I do say so.  After I finished the strawberry border, I went ahead and stitched the alphabet at the bottom and now I'm back to just stitching away at the various motifs. 

Christmas Garden

I've started to think a little about frames for this piece and what I might want.  That means I'm also thinking about where I might hang it.  Since I didn't stitch the words Christmas Garden and instead used Katrina's idea of putting an alphabet in it's place it can hang year round.  But, that means I have to decide where it will go.  I seem to have a growing collection of samplers with red in them so I'm thinking that I may create a samppler wall with all red samplers. 

Thanks for stopping by and may you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


  1. Beautiful progress! And yay for a red sampler wall!

  3. I love your progress on Christmas Garden! It's on my list to maybe stitch in 2013 if I can fit it in. Hope you are having a joyous holiday!

  4. Ooh, a red sampler wall sounds wonderful. Beautiful progress! Would you mind telling me where you got your alphabet from for the bottom?
