Halloween's Over

Well Halloween is over so down came those decorations and up went the next holiday, I love decorating even if it’s just the front door. 
I have been a very busy bee these last couple of days I made my monthly trip to Barnes and Noble and picked up the latest issue of Cross Stitch Collection featuring Joan Elliott’s “A Victorian Christmas” and I also received my copy of her newest book “Fairy Enchantment”.  The “Dragon and the Fairy” is my favorite and of course has been added to my ever growing to-do list.
I keep saying I am a OAATer but lately I’ve wanted to start other projects before finishing the first.  So I have decided that I will start this version of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” from Better Homes and Gardens 2001 Cross Stitch Designs, I guess I’ll even have to start a rotation or I’ll end up with UFOs all over the place.
Last but not least an update on the Green goddess, back stitching is making all the leaves pop.
Well off to make more xxs.

Love the new fairy and woo hoo the Green Goddess looks great and you are right the back stitching(which I hate to do)really makes the leaves stand out.
Take care and happy stitching.
