Holly, Tudor SAL and Christmas Tree

Day 10 iStich Sew Advent SAL added a little holly:

I picked up Catherine Parr and finished her hat, plume, collar of her dress and necklace and started the bodice of her dress.  This is turning out to be a very enjoyable piece to stitch and watch mature.
And last, but not least, I put up our little Christmas tree.  It was a bittersweet labor of love.
More stitching tomorrow - and a new project to start!  YIPPEE!

Keep yourself surrounded by stitches ~ Cheers ~
