Something quick and little

It rained yesterday, actually it has rained almost everyday for a week. It is being reported that we have had more rain then we normally get for the month of November. So I decided to stay in and stitch to my hearts content. I look around and see so many WIP's, but wanted something quick and easy. This is Christmas Poinsettia Topiary by Praiseworthy Stitches from the TGOS Nov. issue, at least my version. I stitched this on 28 ct. Ice Blue Annabelle with DMC 498, 304 and 3051. There should be Merry on the left side and Christmas down the right. I go to start this and realize I should have stitched this over one and can't seem to adjust the wording to fit with over 2. I like it the way it is so may just leave it. I'm working on another one from the same issue. May get that one fnished tonight.

How lovely! There are some great patterns in Nov's TGOS - I especially love the finish on page 22!

That is a sweet finish Irene.
