I've finally finished the first day of my Twelve Days of Christmas cross stitch.
This design is by Plum Street Samplers, it's a free chart on their blog. I'm really enjoying stitching it, I'm especially enjoying the limited colour palette, there's just four colours in the whole of the design and as you can see, I've only used two of them so far.
I'm very happy with my choice of fabric. I'm using a 32 count Murano in Vintage Country Mocha, the highest fabric count I've used so far, and though my eyesight is quite bad, I'm managing perfectly well with my magnifying light.
I know I won't have this finished for this Christmas but I don't mind that, it's not about rushing, it's about enjoying the process and I'm certainly doing that.
