A stitchery....

....I'm working on.
It is a Bird Brain Design pattern
called 'Here Comes Santa'. 

block finished


and block two is finished


I'm using DMC Perle cotton is working out better than I thought 
and am using the back stitch.
I still prefer the outline stitch but I am getting faster with the backstitch 
and I must say I do like the finished blocks!!

Visit Bird Brain Design's online shop .
