Eyes, don't fail me now!

Wednesday, I drove up to The Stitching Bee and picked up the first two designs in the Santa's Village series from Country Cottage Needleworks. I was anxious to see how the houses would look on the fabric I chose, so I took a couple of days off from the model I'm stitching to work on Santa's House. Here is my progress as of last night:


I love the way it looks; however, this 2-over-1 stitching is not particularly easy for my 45-year-old eyes! It's also a bit harder to push the needle through the holes; I'd probably be done with this house if I was stitching 2-over-2. But I will persevere, because I do really love the way it looks on this fabric. CCN just released the third design, so I'd better get my model done soon, so I can get caught up!

Hope everyone has a great stitchy weekend!

  2. I am 31 and my eyes can't handle anything higher then 18 count due to a few issues and ops. It looks stunning on the fabric you chose!

  5. That's a nice fabric that you chose! Will the houses be in separate boxes and not connected?
