Christmas in July stitching

My mind is planning today and that's a scarey thing as usual I'm pretty spontaneously going through the weekend; however, it's a good thing as I found a design I really wanted to stitch for Christmas.

I  know it's brutal hot outside right now and probably no one is thinking Christmas stitching but if I stitch Christmas I have to plan ahead or it's here before ya know it and then....over.

I also thought it would be cool to have a separate blog for a SAL for this Christmas piece from Carriage House Samplings.  I was so sad to read that she is not going to be designing any longer  :(

In the process, I know that July is right around the corner and I will be giving away this pattern + a brand new pair of Hardwick scissors from Kelmscott. So stay-tuned starting first week of July. I have just ordered this, one for me and one for you!

Here is the pattern pic:

Designer---Carriage House Samplings

Sally's Feather Tree
stitch ct 102 x 124

I was drawn to the little bitty prim flags on the ends of this feather tree with the angel on top. I just love the colors!

So stay-tuned!  I will post a separate posting in July for this pattern AND a Kelmscott scissors for your stitching enjoyment!!!!

If anyone is interested in stitching this with a SAL for Christmas, post here for the SAL only and I ALWAYS enjoy your comments !!!!!!

SAL's are so fun and if started early enough during the year, still gives time for other stitching designs and just the networking with other stitchers and sharing are gifts too.


Please do not post on this posting for the giveaway....I will post a separate one in July so that all names will be on the same post for the random number generator. Thanks so much!

Hope your Sunday is going well and stay safe and cool!
