Glad Tidings

I have been stitching again and finished Glad Tidings this weekend. The pattern is from Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly. It is stitched in silk on lambswool linen. I like the colors and the flam stitched bottom band. It will be a nice addition to my holiday decorations once I get it finished or framed.

It seems right to feature a holiday finish during the first snow of the year. The big flakes are actually sticking to the ground tonight, bringing an early winter. The dogs are really excited -- they love to go wrestle in the snow.


  1. Wow!! What a beautiful finish - congratulations! I sort of envy you the snowflakes - we have great weather right now here in Arizona but I do miss the nicer parts of winter now and then. :)

  2. Thank you, I enjoyed working on this piece. I lived in Arizona but I hated being hot, snow is fun as long as the roads are clear.

  3. Nice to see another of these finished. I have mine framed on my wall and really enjoy it
