is now finished. I survived the border, but I did leave a little of it off. It's only missing a few spaced stitches by the leaves. I'm happy with it this way. It was stitched with a combination of HDF and NPI silks, on 40ct. vintage Meadow Rue by Lakeside Linen. I'm not sure what I'll do next. I've been working on Quaker Christmas by Carriage House Samplings on and off, and it would be nice to have it done for THIS season. Last year at this time, I promised myself that I would stitch a small sampler ornament each month until I had enough for a small fir tree. Didn't happen. I did manage to stitch four or five, and they need the finishing done, which is not my favorite part. Maybe if I get at least one or two done, I can have a Charlie Brown tree!
