At Last! Some Stitching!

Yay! I finally did some stitching. This little Holly Girl is part of a design from a French cross stitch magazine (De Fil en Aiguille - Nov/Dec 08 issue), that I acquired from Sally (Thanks Sally). There are loads of lovely designs in it so expect to see more soon. I stitched it using orphan threads from my "I am never going to stitch that hideous cover kit but the threads might come in handy" bag and made it up into an ornament with a gold ric rac edging which is a bit sparklier than it looks in the picture


And another view of Prague, this one drawn with Derwent  pastel pencils on black Murano pastel paper

That's a lovely way to finish this sweet design.

Nice drawing too.

Wonderful drawing and such a lovely ornament, I have one that shape/finish that you sent to me quite a few years ago and love to see it on my tree each year.

Oh that is lovely Christine and I look forward to seeing more!!
The view of Prague is lovely , we went about 20 years ago ,and the other half would like to go again. So much to see. How envious of you I am , I cannot draw for toffee.
Hope you are well.
