It was a wonderful IHSW.  I took my time and enjoyed watching tv and stitching.   I did complete Michael Powell's Christmas Tree Freebie from 2008, and one of Lucie Heaton's Santa Elephants design from 2012 Christmas CrossStitch Favourites.   I was going to also work on the reindeer from the same mag - Xmas animals, but thought, that's good for now!  I am looking forward to checking out others stitching this week, and as well, next months IHSW!   Wonderful idea by the way!!  :)

  11. Thank you Dani for your nice comment. I agree. I couldn't find it a month ago and I even looked at Michael Powell site, but it's not there any longer. I finally found it where I had left it last year! Good Luck! :)

  13. Thank you very much and yes, it is great to get the instant gratification. I do have an ongoing extra large design, one of my own, Daniel the Blue Iguana, approved pic by John Binns. But he is so large, I'm afraid it does wait long times in between. :)
