If you like Christmas tree, if you like stitching Christmas tree, you must know Elisa's Christmas tree tradition. Every year she designs a different tree and graciously offers it on her site. 
My favorite one....Christmas tree 2008 I stitched in ...2008 :)

This year's tree or trees...are on Elisa's site : Elisa's Christmas tree
Thank you Elisa for your kindness and generosity.

I love this advent calendar.

The month of October went by way too quickly. However I find a little time to finish a project I started in September...well it is not quite finished yet as I still have to sew the back. Hopefully it will be done before Thanksgiving.
This is a pattern I bought a couple of years ago and never took the time to complete...I love the result!. Instead of outlining with a blanket stitch I made several drawstring cords of different thickness to outline the design. It gives a lot of structure and contrast. What do you think?
