The Holly & Ivy Sampler

Earlier in the week I finished the last few stitches off on the Holly & Ivy Sampler by Shepherds Bush. This was one of my holiday stitching projects, started New Year's Eve, and Kath has been stitching it too.
 

Such a lovely design to stitch, the first Shepherds Bush design I've stitched in ages and I loved the pretty greens and burgundy coloured threads.


It's also been awhile since I did any over 1 thread stitching so that took me a bit of time to get used to but I got there in the end!

I have another little finish to share but I'll leave that one for another day. I hope the week has been going well for you - I can't believe we're almost to the end of January already!

See you soon xx

I stitched this one a year or so ago, but haven't done anything with it. Thanks for reminding me.

It is fun to pick up a Shepheard's Bush every once in a while, isn't it?
