Christmas Stitching and Snow!!

Here is the finished "Forever Friends" Christmas Card I stitched for my daughter.  I had some difficulty finding a card with a large enough aperture.  So I had to cut the one I had.  There was a couple of cuts showing, so I used stick on ribbon to hid it.  I think it turned out not too bad.  Anyway she loved it.

Forever Friends - from Cross Stitch Crazy issue 157.

I found some lovely Blackwork Angels by Prairie Schooler and just had to stitch them.  
And here are two that I have stitched so far.

Blackwork Angels by Prairie Schooler
I've made them into Christmas Tree Ornaments for my friend Janet who loves Angels.

Look what I woke up to this morning!!  Snow!

As a child I always wished for snow on my birthday, but it did not happen many times.  
But the snow today did not last very long, so  I was able to go out and do some Christmas Shopping.
Not long now until Christmas!  Are you ready!!

Until next time, Happy Stitching.

I think that the ribbon finishes off the card. I have been admiring your Wessex stitchery on your header. For sometime I have been trying to source Gay Eaton's book in the UK without success. Amazon have a copy at £326!!!

The ribbon finishes your card nicely. Love the angels but you can keep the snow!
