Jingle

Here's my latest design, Jingle all the way.  It's a pin keep, but I like to use them in potpourri filled bowls.  I love the linen, it's called Swamp, and it's from PTP Colorscapes.  Not your traditional Christmas color, but it was fun to use.  My model is stitched with Belle Soie Mahogany and Icing on 36ct.  If you'd rather use cotton over-dyes, Cayenne and Toasted Marshmallow from Crescent Colours are good conversions.  I thought the bell was a nice touch, but it is charted with a snowflake if you'd prefer it that way.  The bell was found at Hobby Lobby.  The trim is jumbo Rick Rack from Wrights in the color Bark. 
Thanks again to the amazing Vonna for taking my visions and making them work. 

I'm still working on the model for Hannah Tingey, but I'm itching to get back to stitching for fun.  I'm thinking ahead to what projects to take for the trip to Myrtle Beach for the Pals 2011 Stitchin' At The Beach retreat which is coming up soon.  I'm beyond excited to see some old friends, and make some new ones.  I'm a surf and sand girl, so I can't wait to get to the beach.  We're spending a couple of days in Charleston before heading up the coast.  I've never been to that city, and I just know I'm going to love it.

Oh I love the Jingle pin keep. I have to have this one. How can I order your charts best? I went to the attic shop you linked in earlier posts, but couldn't find any information on international shipping nor could I find your charts there.

Tanya, it's very cute. I never would've thought of using that fabric, but it's perfect for it. The little snowflakes are very sweet!

Wish I was going to the retreat, too. You'll have a great time and I know you love Charleston and won't want to leave. Hope you get in some good beach time!

Just love this one Tanya especially the color scheme. I'm all into lime green shades this year for Christmas so will be picking up this one quickly (and I'm going to have to visit Hobby Lobby this week as I love those bells!).

Have a wonderful time at the retreat, it sounds lovely.
