Advent Calendar Box

Instead of my usual stitchy advent boxes, I decided to go with a stationery one this year.

Stitchy Box Advent 2022

Lots of stitchy stuff in this. I've started using some things. Lots more to stitch.

Andreas decided on an ink calendar for advent this last year.

Historical Sampler Co Advent Calendar

When I ordered this, I thought it was actually about the advent pattern they had and a kit. I was wrong. It's a rather ... eclectic collection.

Swirl Star Christmas Tree by DMC: 22 for 2022 #15

 This little piece is so open I should be able to finish it soon. This is about 3/4 of its height. I've been wanting to do this one for a while.

Manchester Christmas Market

I got my Christmas markets this year!  Here are some pictures from Manchester.  We had a good time our first night in England wandering around the market.  Took their train from our hotel to get there.

Bounty From Lorrie

 Lorrie spoiled me with the cracker exchange.  There were a bunch of little packages, as they all wouldn't fit in the cracker.  Top is the packages, chocolate included, and bottom is the packages exploded view.  Thank you Lorrie!

An Ornamental Finish!

I've finished my last of the three ornaments from the July stitchalong.  It's only three months late.  Not bad, for me.  The design is Dicken's Christmas by Keslyn.

Progressing To The End

I've decided to just finish this up, as I found some more of the floss I had run out of.  It's getting close!

Right At Halfway

This is coming along and is pretty, but it's huge for a Christmas ornament.  Now I'm on the narrowing down part.

Adventskalendar Finished

I've finally completed the 24 motifs for the adventskalendar.  I believe I was the only person to do it all on one piece of fabric.  It came out pretty well, I think.   The biggest hurdle in it was the one motif that was fifty stitches square instead of forty.

No More Boring Tree

I finished the boring tree and started in on the next motif, which is going quickly!

Boring Tree

Lots of green and nothing else on this tree, so it's just stitch after stitch of sameness.  On the other hand, it'll be done soon!

On To Seventeen

I am now officially on the seventeenth motif.  Only seven more to go after this!

Not Quite Fifteen

I still have back stitches to do on the fifteenth motif.  This particular motif puts me in a quandary, too.  Instead of a maximum of forty stitches square, this one was designed as fifty.  I now have to compensate with a skinny design to the right of it and a short one below it.

Fourteen of Twenty-Four

I seem to be getting about a motif a week done on this.  The last one was a really easy one - all backstitch and Rhodes stitches and upright crosses.  On to the next...

13 of 24

One more motif done.  My language teacher says this one looks very Moldovan, as the main colors are the colors of the Moldovan flag.
