Stitching Magic

I worked on more of the blocks in Gail Pan's Christmas Wish series but you will notice that I am not good at following instructions. I decided to stay with four colours and have been alternating DMC 680 and 167. Yes, they are similar, but they are different enough to be noticeable. I started the decoration on this one the other night and then decided I should do it in the daylight so the weekend will be perfect for getting this done.
Oh, and you see here - I said I'm not good at following patterns! I changed the word on this one, yes it does say something about me. Still more detail for the border decoration.Okay, so I have been starting and not finishing again, but these little stitcheries are fun to work on and I am inspired by the words. I'll keep on dreaming that one day I may actually finish one thing before starting one or two more!
...........
For those of you who are not satisfied with the dolls feet you will just need to be patient she is part of a swap and she needs to stay in hiding until she finds her new home. The other doll is my guy of a few posts ago, he looks finished now with his shoes on!
.........
Weave a little magic in your part of the world this weekend and Enjoy! ............
Happy Crafting
