Last night's finish

Wednesday evenings are still when I work on my red stitchery projects and this is the latest I've finished. I've done one or two more but as they are going to be gifts all will be revealed a bit later in the year :)

This is Home for Christmas by Rosalie Quinlan, a wonderful Australian designer.





I used one of my favourite Christmas colours to stitch with, DMC 321.

The latest Homepsun issue was in my local bookshop last week, this is the special Christmas issue.



I think this design, another by Rosalie Quinlan, will be a lovely stitch.


Some exciting news! We welcomed a little bundle of joy to our extended family this morning, Milla Sierra was born to very proud parents, my cousin Glen and his wife Amanda, at 12.30am, weighing 8 pd 3 oz. Can't wait to meet their little princess and I'm very pleased that I've nearly finished the baby blanket :)
