I competely, totally forgot to post yesterday! There goes my perfect NaBloPoMo record. Sniff. In my defense, I had a couple of work issues yesterday that kept running around and around in my head. Even yoga couldn't clear my ruminating mind. So I just plain forgot.Well! On Saturday I'll summarize your responses to my last post about themed Christmas stitching. But I'll tell you right now that the Fellow in the Red Suit is pretty darn popular.
As for me, I love Santa, too and I have several Santa charts, but I've only stitched him once. I have several collections like that....I decide that I love this, that, or the other theme and I must have charts in that theme and then I don't actually stitch them.
Let's see....I've collected butterfly charts. (Stitched none) Bird charts. (Stitched none) Cat charts. (Stitched 1) Hearts. (Stitched 1) Florals. (Stitched none) L&L angels (stitched none) I'll stop here. I'm getting sad.
On the other hand, I've collected and successfully stitched houses and samplers for over 25 years and that's saying something, isn't it? Maybe it just says that I'm a one (or two) trick pony....but I choose to say that I'm really, really good at stitching houses and samplers, and I like the feeling of being good at something and I'm not going to mess with that.
But back to favorite Christmas themes and I want to tell you my favorites and show you how they've changed over the years. Picture time!
Christmas samplers. Gotta love them. I mean....alphabets. Neat motifs lined up in a row. Right up my alley.
And now I'm not sure that I could say that I have a favorite theme. Snowmen are sweet. Santa may be in the running. And who doesn't love a holiday house? It's so hard to choose....
