A Little XS & A Little NP

I have worked on two different Christmas projects this past week.

This is a Pat Thode / Heartstrings needlepoint canvas called Santa with Snowman.  I am stitching from a kit by Fireside Stitchery that includes a stitch guide, threads and charm.  Overall, the stitch guide is quite good, I do not know if it is original or an expended version of the original stitch guide —  I wish that they included the original stitch guide from Pat Thode.  The are a few errors in the chart versus the completed photo so I would not recommend this for a beginner stitcher.  Also, it is one big bundle of compensation so you need to be comfortable with how to compensate for all of the decorative stitches.

My other project this week is the HAED Mini Be Good for Goodness Sake – it is being used for my HAED challenge project. The challenge is parking and I am going to try to complete about 770 stitches per week – that will be 10 rows of the page.
