12 Days of Christmas Update

Good Morning all. I spent all day working on 12 Days of Christmas as part of my new rotation. After working on it all day here is how it is looking. I mainly spent my time fighting with the kreinik thread, for some reason, this spool is constantly fraying and little pieces snapping.

Today is going to be spent taking the top gold border right across to the last holly leaves, and then I can work on the red and some backstitching.

With a bit of luck, I may manage a little more than I did yesterday :)

EDIT: change of plans, I have to frog all the holly leaves as they are one stitch too far to the right grrrrrr.  :( :( :(

Hope everyone is keeping well.

Until next time



  1. Borders... they always seem to bring the frogs. Beautiful piece..so detailed. Hope that's the last problem you find with this one.

  2. What a pretty design Stephie. Don't worry about the leaves.


  3. It's so beautiful! I'm sorry you had to frog the leaves. I have a design using gold metallic (Treasure Braid and not Kreinik) but I dread stitching with it!


Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I do love to read them :) xxx
