Second finish of the year

I finished LHN 's Winter Plaid today. It feels great to finish a bigger pattern, I lost steam before Christmas when I ran out of Hickory Sticks, but with a little bit of enthusiasm this past few days I was able to complete it. I used the required threads and 30 ct northern cross natural linen. The only change I made was to stitch all the letters in Hickory Sticks vice the second line which she had done using roasted chestnut, I also noticed that the pattern included an extra snowflake by the cardinal but the model picture doesn't include it. Lol.

Now to start another exchange piece, finish a exchange piece and I believe if needle and thread meet this evening, it will be to start Baby it's Cold Outside, I've been chomping at the bit to start but promised myself only after I finished Winter Plaid.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I do enjoy the visits.

**my apologies, I didn't realize how wavy the fabric was when I took the pictures!
