8th December - A new stitching start

I like to have a new stitchy start in December and while looking through my charts a month or two ago I  came across this Waxing Moon one.  To be honest I had started this one before but didn't like the fabric I choose so It was abandoned.  I had all the threads so just had to choose a different fabric, I'm much happier this time round.
I haven't made great progress and it's doubtful I'll get it finished by the end of the month but hopefully I can get it done sometime in early January.

The verse reads, 
Snow comes softly in the dark of night.  
When we awake the world is white.  
In January when there's snow, we get our sleds and away we go.

I've been watching a new-to-me podcast/floss tube recently, momma loves you GB and she mentioned a site on Esty that she buys from called Sub Rosa.  I had heard of Sub Rosa before but hadn't looked at what they were selling, well, I was very good and only bought two charts but there are quite a few that I would like to purchase another time.

Christmas again, I'm always drawn to Christmas stitching :-)  I love these two though and they were in pdf format, which is great.
I've already kitted a few charts up that I want to stitch next year but I think these will also have to be added.

So here are my lovely goodies from my advents today, Jo popped a lovely hot chocolate in today too, thanks Jo, I'm actually drinking that now :-)

 See you tomorrow, take care.

I really like that waxing moon design! Plus the Sub Rosa's are so cute. I think I will do a quick Christmas then move on the a small sampler.

The Waxing Moon design is just perfect for a winter stitching.

God bless.

I love the idea of Christmas stitching. I really must get back into cross stitching as I haven't done any in ages

Jo said...

It can be quite dangerous discovering a new Etsy shop but I think you were very good buying only two charts. I know I haven't done very much stitching yet but I seem to be drawn to Christmas designs too. I love the Waxing Moon design you've started, are there other designs for the other months too?

It funny how if you choose the wrong fabric to stitch on how hard it becomes, I have a very expensive kit I started, live everything about it except the fabric, I'm to far in to start again, getting the silks would cost a fortune, not DMC ones used. I hope to try and do more next year.

I don’t know waxing moon design. I will wait to see in embroidered, with the new fabric you will choose.

Maybe watching your progress on the January Waxing Moon piece will inspire me to get mine framed, Maggie! I've had it stitched for a decade!
