More Christmas Dreams

I have continued to stitch fairly regularly on Christmas Dreams by Joan Elliott. It is coming along nicely I think. I love the blues in it! At first I thought the darkest blue was too dark, but as I fill in the medium blue it is coming together nicely.

Here is what it looks like before I started stitching on Valentine's Day.

I am really enjoying stitching this piece. I love how the fabric adds a wonderful sparkle to the overall design. This will make it perfect for the Christmas season. I plan on turning it into a wall quilt and giving it to my mother-in-law for Christmas. She makes beautiful quilts so I am sure she will like having this as a holiday wall quilt. I may have to wait until closer to Christmas to get some appropriate frabric that will match the colors in the design itself, but I'm hoping I can find some (possibly on clearance) online somewhere.

I stitched for a good 3 hours straight last night but I haven't taken any pictures of that progress yet. I will try to get them up tomorrow.


Thank you very much for visiting my internet home for my crafts. I appreciate your taking the time to visit and/or comment.

If you have any questions (looking for designer information of a piece I'm stitching, how to do cross stitch etc. ) please feel free to contact me. You will find my email address in my profile and I will do my best to either answer your question, or find information that can help you get your answer.

Thank you again for the visit and I hope you have a great day!
