Hi! Welcome to day 17th of the Advent Calendar Blog Hop
Jo organizes this event, here you can find all the links to the bloggers
Here is the stitching I have done for this Calendar, I'm in a "skating" mood for some years looking for some charts, I found this one in an old folder of my Mum, I think it's from "Modes et Travaux" magazine.
It's stitched with two threads of white DMC and one metallic thread on red Aïda.
The back will be done with the fabric I bought during holidays, lovely skaters.
This is the 2016 skating stitching
you'll recognize the N° 1
of free Brooke's Book Animal Advent Calendar
I'm not far from the end of the "Pattini d'Argento" from Cuore e Batticuore,
I stopped stitching the characters because as I changed the red colors now I don't like the colors of the scarf.
I'm stitching the string at the top of the chart between the two white stars on trees and the girl's hair.
No Boxing Day in France, on the 26th we used to rest at home (when we are not working), taking the opportunity of sharing time with kids playing with their new toys, now they are older and we are very happy when the family can gathered for Christmas.
This year will be different, as we will be in holidays in Alsace, a well known aera for Christmas markets. We will share this time with DD1 and her family and DD3 back from highschool.
How many sleeps to wait is the recurring question (today is 6).
Now, you're lucky because you'll have to visit Tiffany my "twin stitching sister" for this Sunday.
Joyeuses Fêtes de Noël !
