Welcome to the Jolliest blog on the block! Each month we have a different theme. You choose your chart, fabric and threads.

Happy Xmas everyone!
Isn't it amazing what you can find when you go rummaging around in your stash! I was looking through my stash of Christmas designs for something pudding or food like but nothing jumped out until I raided the box of magazine freebies....
So who would like some figgy pudding? This is a Jane Greenoff design. I am not sure what magazine it came from originally (probably Needlecraft UK) but it would have been from the late 80's or early 90's I suspect.
So that's it - quick and simple this month!
See you next month! Til then happy Christmas stitching!
This is literally hot off the ironing board and is from Lizzie Kate's Tiny Tidings XII. I used Wichelt's lambswool 32 count (over 2) with mostly the recommended floss colors. (I subbed out a couple of colors that I didn't already have in my stash.) The heart button was just one from my stash.
When my 4 kids were living at home, we'd always leave out some cookies and milk for Santa (and carrots for the reindeer) and Santa would always leave a thank you note with some advice to the kids about being good for the upcoming year...so this was an obvious choice for me to stitch.
I have decided to stitch the Christmas Cubes by Primitive Hare as my Christmas project this year. I looked at the themes which Kaye had chosen for this year and all but two are covered by the Cubes. Perfect! It does mean that I will stitch the letters out of order but I can cope with that.
Here is Cube 7 - I
This is exactly as charted apart from the substitution of B5200 for Blanc.
Hello lovely Christmas Elves ... Just wanting some advice, please. I thought that for a change I would try to Finish my latest Christmas Ornie, Xmas Tea, straight away - I know, I know, be still my beating heart! I am actually going to be organised! lol! Anyway, reaching into my newly organised tub of Christmas fabric, literally the first fabric that caught my eye was this one:
But then I rummaged around a little bit more and found this one:
I think that I am leaning more towards the second one but I would love a second opinion - so please let me know what you think.
