Santa's Village HD
I've been away from my blog for much too long! I haven't been stitching all that much. The husband and I have been playing Wildstar (look for Rowan on Avatus). That seems to be petering out a bit, so I'm getting back to the stitching.
I finished this one last month -- Santa's Village by Country Cottage Needleworks. For such a simple piece, it certainly had a lot of frogging. I've gotten spoiled by consistent dye lots, so I didn't notice that my DMC 321 reds didn't match. Look out for that period at the end of the number. It means the colors have been reformulated, so they probably won't match your old floss exactly. Sneaky.
I'll probably turns this one into a wall hanging eventually.
I also received two pieces back from Jill Rensel, so stay tuned for pics!

This piece looks great. Congrats on the finish.
Congrats! It looks amazing.
Very pretty and so very Christmassy - congrats!
That piece is amazing! What a fantastic finish. And I love the idea of turning it into a wall hanging.
I feel ya on the sneaky dye lot changes. I have some older floss and I've learned to check my floss and (try to) make sure I have enough of a dye lot.
A wonderful finish. It will look gorgeous as a wallhanging. Just had mine framed.
There is something is the air, this is the second completed village I have seen this month!
Your's looks amazing like this.
