Christmas in July

So many shops have Christmas canvases on sale in July that I thought I'd show off some terrific Christmas pieces, just to inspire you in case you bought something holiday you are stitching madly to make finishing deadlines in September and October.   One of Ridgewood's customers stitched a Melissa Shirley double sided angel to use as a Christmas tree topper.  Isn't that an amazing face?  Hope Melissa has seen this one!

Ruth Schmuff is working on this wonderful Christmas Village scene, also from Melissa Shirley.

Shelly Tribbey has a wonderful round set of Twelve Days of Christmas ornaments.  You can see several of them finished here.

Finally, Barbara Bergsten has her set of six Santa Stitches finished and displayed.  I would love to see these in reds, greens and golds!

Stitch faster, there are only 155 days left until Christmas!
