When we finally kiss goodnight, how I’ll hate going out in the storm…

Merry Christmas, everyone!  One last seasonal make to show everyone…

I spied this in the 2014 Just Cross Stitch Christmas ornament special.  The magazine’s version was stitched on this crazy Shrek-green evenweave that immediately reminded me of my next door neighbours’ living room walls, and I knew I had to stitch this up for them.  I didn’t have a colour like that in my stash, but I did find some 28-count pewter evenweave, which I thought nicely evocative of a grey winter sky.  (Even though it doesn’t co-ordinate with their walls nearly as well, the cardinals sure pop.)  My local stitchery shop had a small oval hoop which framed it perfectly.

A better shot of the piece itself:

Wishing everyone happy holidays.  I hope Santa/the Hanukkah Armadillo brings you everything you want!
