A Finish & a Little More Stitching

I have my first finish of the year. This is Natale in Slitta by Cuore e Batticuore. I'm thinking of making it into a pillow. Please excuse the wrinkles as I haven't pressed it yet.

It is stitched using the called for DMC threads except the gold. I substituted 3829 because the 3828 did not show up on my fabric which is 36 ct. Lakeside Meadow Rue.

After we lost Gray I needed a distraction so I started something new. Nothing like a new start to take your mind off things. I already had this one kitted up and waiting. I am now half way through Royal Games I from Mirabilia. I finished the Queen of Hearts except the beading tonight.

Isn't she lovely? I was hoping to have this completed by the end of March but I'm going to be busy dog sitting my sister's dog and visiting her in rehab. She has to have a knee replacement. I may not be able to stitch on this but I have a baby sampler to work on as my travel project so I will be stitching.

Thank you to everyone who commented about Gray. I appreciate your kind thoughts.

Thanks for stopping by.

Your finish is so beautiful and will make a great pillow. I love her designs. Your wip is just as beautiful and look forward to your progress.

Such a colourful sleigh, it looks great!
Your Queen looks wonderful! This is one I've thought about stitching too.

Love that sleigh. I have been looking at the Mirabilia pieces as my nephew has a card playing area in their family room and these would fit perfectly.
