Celtic Christmas

I have always loved the designs of Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum.  Check out her designs here http://www.tiag.com/division/ll.html

I don't remember when I got this pattern but I found it again recently.  This is a photo of the finished project.


This is what I done so far.  The pattern calls for a green linen but I cannot see the linen to stitch on it.  I need to get a magnifying lamp.  So I found a piece of 18 count Aida but it was bright white.  Sophia and I dyed it with tea.  We should have let it soak in the tea over night.  The tea bath took the edge off the brightness.

I better get back to work!!

This one will be for me!! I want to have a spot in my next home that I can hang seasonal stitchings, even if it is something small!
I hope that the gold will show nicely in mine.
