Merry and Bright



Merry and Bright
Country Cottage Needleworks

Another quick stitch. I stitched this up last night, using DMC and 32ct natural linen. I have to say although I love the design, the colours are not me. I prefer something more traditional, so why didn't I change them - well I have no idea! I was just in a hurry to grab fabric and thread and get stitching! I will probably stitch this again in colours to suit me. This pattern is in the JCS ornament issue this year, just in case anyone was wondering.

Fabulous finish! I actually love these colors. It would also look in the traditional red, green and gold too. I am going to stitch this one soon.

It's very nice Chris and I'm sure it will be equally nice in traditional Christmas colours

Hi Chris ooohh another pic and another lovely finish, I did Magic out of this years JCS and love it but being pink it just doesnt sit right with me. I think a grandaughter may decide to have it lol.
Ok dare I ask what is next ?

It's a beauty isn't it :)
I was the model stitcher and finisher for Nikki on this one...I loved it a lot. I like traditional colors too, but I thought this one would be good for my pink cottage loving daughter :)

Thats lovely but, like you, I think I'd prefer it in more Christmassy colours

Sally said...

I love it Chris! I do like traditional colours but I also love the ones in this. Very pretty :)

Lovely finish Chris, very pretty. I'm the same as you in that I like the traditional colours for christmas and must say I was put off this design for that reason, but now it's growing on me lol, and like you said, I can stitch it using my own colours if I like.
