Merry Christmas!

Christmas is drawing near. Today, I finished up
this beautiful Merry Christmas designed by Michelle.
I just love this design. Thanks again Michelle for
sharing this wonderful chart! I stitched using Anchor colors as
I don't have DMC color in my stash, one over one on 32 count
Platinum Belfast Linen. I try my best to choose the Anchor
colors that similar to the suggested colors.

I finished it as a mini pillow.

I do feel Christmas is now just around the corner.
Christmas songs are inescapable in every shopping malls and
retail outlets. From Jingle Bells to Silver Bells. We're in
Ikea yesterday. And christmas spirit does not abide here in Ikano.

Look what I bought at the christmas fair...

Some beautiful ribbons,

and two gorgeous handmade bags.

These four pieces of beautiful christmas coaster
are the free gift that I get from Ikea.

I seize this opportunity to wish you all a very merry christmas
and a fabulous new year. Thanks for popping in and as always
I appreciate all your comments. And also thanks for
sharing all your awesome works!

Cheers!!!!! Merry Christmas!!!!!

wauw, your Christmas house looks beautiful !
and stitched 1 over 1, amazing !
I tried it once, but I gave up very quickly.

I have a very good list for converting DMC colors to Anchor, if you need it just let me know.
by the way, I really like your blog, I will come by more often !

A very merry Christmas to you and your family!

I must apologize to you. I was just throwing all the comments about the new TU SAL into a drawer until I got to making the new list and I did not notice until just this minute that you had also asked about the Christmas Design SAL.

The Christmas Design SAL is for the year 2010. Information and sign up is here. We would love to have you with us if you like. But you must leave a comment on that's just too confusing for me unless everybody is on the same page. Come on over and join in the fun.
