Getting ahead for Christmas

Red Robins for Christmas by Gail Pan
Or am I just late....LOL

I found this gorgeous stitchery pattern "Red Robins for Christmas 2011" on Gail Pan's blog site "Gail Pan Designs" before New Year.

I just can't believe I've actually completed it. As my quilting friends know, I have a slight love for Cottage Garden Threads - so used  No 502 - Hippeastrum to do this stitchery, it felt christmasy, I think I'll do a red on white or white on red would be lovely too.

I now just need to decide whether it should be a wall hanging, front of a bag or journal cover. Any thoughts?

Now I'm ahead for Christmas pressies - hopefully I can keep up with something a month.

Happy Sewing

It's lovely.

Why don't you add some borders and then turn it into a Christmas cushion cover that you can whip out each year.

Your stitchery is lovely Jennifer. I'd make it into a little hanging but then again, that's what I always do!

Beautiful stitching. I think it should be a wall hanging.

I like all those ideas. I think l would make it into a bag pocket/panel or an insert into a card, depending on its size.
