Lavender Embroidery and Christmas Cross Stitch

I've been working on new designs for 2012 and some lavender came to mind. Lavender is one of my favorite scents and flowers. I have lavender sachets in my linen closets and will buy all the lavender scented house care products on the market...just smells clean and fresh to me. I like the brown and purple color combination and I added a little green and so far so good.

My last two Christmas designs for the year. Burgundy silk hand dyed floss on white for the design above. I like the crisp clean look of it. I probably won't have it done by the Needlework Show but soon after.

I finished this cross stitch design last weekend and made it into a table square using some flannels I had. I made it the same way I made the bluebird table square. I usually cut the squares to match the shape of the design after trimming it down a bit. Easy holiday decorations!
