A Quaker Christmas Returns


With the distraction of Halloween Fairy now over, it was time to pull A Quaker Christmas back out for a while tonight while I was glued to watching the Tampa Bay Rays lose and give some ground back to the Red Sox ;-) It was nice to work on it again, although when my new light comes in tomorrow (according to the shipper's website, it is almost here as of today), I think I will enjoy working on the 40 ct again. It was not hard to do tonight, but I prefer to not encourage any eye strain.

Thank you so much for the sweet comments about Halloween Fairy. I don't know if she will be framed before Halloween. Maybe. I usually get things framed for my birthday in July and then at Christmas time. This would be off schedule for me, but DH did already offer to do it anyhow. We will see. As for stitching her quickly, she is smaller than most of Nora's designs, more like her Pixie collection... no fears stitchers, you can all stitch her up easily and relatively quickly ;-) Yes, she does use an awful lot of Kreinik and beads!

Stitched on today: Finished a gift, and stitched on A Quaker Christmas

Do you mean to say I could actually stitch the Halloween Fairy? Perhaps next year ;o)
I'm glad to see Christmas Quaker again! This is such a beauty, and after this ling time of Quaker Christmas deprivation, I think it looks even better!

Christmas Quaker is huge but I am sure if you keep stitching away then it will be done in no time.
