I Think I Can!

After telling myself multiple times that my Victorian Christmas Lady would be for me and my own enjoyment I have crumbled and decided nope, my nan would love it. As my mom said "you should just give in and surprise her by giving it to her" She is constantly asking if I have finished it yet and bringing up how she wants to open the green present. Not only is it her colors but she loves ladies and trees. I enjoy seeing her face when I surprise her, she is so cute and shocked that I managed to just finish a project!

So with that being said....I have started a new project in hopes that I finish it in the next 2 or so weeks so I will have my own Christmas cross stitch to hang up in the dinning room! I am working on Joan Elliott's 2012 Christmas Angel

It is not overly Christmas either so I can hang her up for the winter season if I want to. I am not too sure about the wings and might end up leaving them off having her as a Winter Maiden instead. I am also planning on doing her skin over one!

Here is my progress so far:

This is after just one day of stitching. She is on white 32 count linen and uses some of my favorite shades of teal. It is far from my nan's colors so I know this one is for keeps for sure!


  1. She looks beautiful! Make sure you keep us in the loop with your progress!!!

  2. Wow she is beautiful! It'll be great that you can keep her up the whole winter season too. Plus giving a gift to your nan that you know she'll really love is super special :)

    Happy Stitching!

  3. She looks great. Hopefully this one will be all for you.

  4. She is gorgeous!! So nice to give the Christmas Lady to your Nan, I'm sure she will love it.

  5. What a beautiful new start =)
    She will be so lovely! =)

  6. Oh how good are you to give your Victorian lady to your Nan. :)
    Great start on the Winter Angel. This is such a beautiful design. Enjoy! :)
