Over the weekend, I finished stitching Santa's Stocking Store. This one went quick and I'm excited to stitch next month's reindeer!
As you can see, I did not stitch the striped border along the top of this chart. I think the holly branch border is just too pretty to have to compete so closely with the red and white stripes. So far I think I like it. Eventually, I think I'll finish stitching the red/white border as a frame around the finished piece.

I have been trying to post for a couple of days. I have been unable post pictures, not really sure why. I have finished Poinsettia House and North Pole Post Office. I started Mrs. Claus' Cookie Shop but I have found I am off a half of a stitch. :( So I will send a good part of today unstitching.

I'm stitching on 32 count Wichelt Amber Linen (2 over 2) and used all DMC colors as charted for Mrs. Claus' Cookie Shop. I'm loving how this piece is turning out.
Please excuse my wrinkled fabric. You can see more pictures on my blog Sweet Coast Stitches. Happy Stitching!

Not sure how I am going to finish them yet. Maybe cube? I left the border off because I am not sure
about the finish.
I am stitching them on 18ct Aida from PTP in earthen.
Love seeing everyone's village taking shape!

With just looking at the material after finishing the first house,I knew there was probably a problem. My next step was to do the bottom sections all the way across and see what would happen. So, I might be safe just by the skin of my teeth.. There is 1 1/4" of fabric left. I had planned on making a quilted banner with a hanger so I should be safe. Now to check down for 3 houses....have to find a yardstick

I've finished the second adorable little house. My whole family loves seeing the village come to life.
I liked the idea I read here of putting a candy cane border around the whole thing, so I started it while I was waiting to receive pattern #2. I really like it, and I am going to skip the candy cane borders along the top of each row.

Not sure when I will get the second one done because I have put the chart in a safe place...and no idea where that safe place was!

I'm just about to finish the stitching on Santa's House. I've chosen to stitch each one individually. However, I'm not sure how I want to finish the piece.
My initial thought was as a flat pinkeep type or stuffed pillow type ornament, but upon seeing just how large (even on 32 ct) these are going to be, I'm worried that it will be too large to hang on my tree.

Everyone's progress looks so good!
