This is how Christmas Garden looks in all it's finery. I am a Plain Jane sort of girl so I like the simple, uncomplicated frames. This is a bigger frame than I normally would use but I really liked it so I went with it!
With Christmas Rules off the WIP list I was able to get back to work on Francis Pool. I took her to stitch group on Monday and that seemed to work out pretty well so she may become my group piece for a while. She is very symmetrical and easy to work on while not paying too close attention so this would give me a couple of days a week at least to work on her. Her is where she is right now:

LOL!! We all know that never happens! I'll just hope for the end of the year!
I also started Ann Bowers which is a SAL with the Attic. I have had the kit for a number of years and when Jean suggested it as a SAL for this year I jumped right in. It was kitted with 35 ct. which seemed really small to me when I bought the kit. But I have moved on to even smaller count linen now and swapped out the 35 ct for 45 ct. My stitch group thinks I'm crazy but I really love how it looks!
