Another finish ...

Jingle, Sparkle, Joy by Midsummer Night Designs - Stitched for an ornament exchange.

I finished stitching this in the wee hours of this morning (about 1am I think). It is a freebie from Midsummer Night Designs and can be found here. I stitched it on white 32 count opalescent lugana with the suggested DMC threads. Just before 2am I was dunking the finished piece in coffee - the white was just too stark and I wanted to tone it down :)

This is for an exchange so after I post this I will go and finish-finish it and get it packaged up and ready to send off to it's new home next week.

Thank you one and all for your lovely comments on Happy Haunting. I think I will set Tuesday aside this week to finish it off into a flatfold - should be interesting!!

Also, thank you Alison for the link to your new blog - I shall be over shortly to check it out and say hello :)
