There's something about Reindeer

Hello friends.
Here's my last batch of Prairie Schooler charts:
Apologies for the dark pictures. I just love the colors on Bees, and much to my surprise, the chart only requires 4 colors.
And the main topic:

 I think this is a reissue of Prairie Schooler Book#25 - Up On the Housetop. The back shows lovely houses:
 I like the old simple style of Santa's sled:
 There's a reindeer on one of these Christmas trees (beside the snowman).
I'm also adding here a pattern by Heartstring Samplery which I got on sale a month ago (less 25%) . It's got the lyrics  of "What a Wonderful World" which is pretty neat, love the song.
 I already bought 4 of the 5 required threads. A few days ago I posted the fabric I'm going to stitch this on. 
 Finally, lots of progress on Christmas Eve:
I finished green, red and dark gold. There's an omission here. I'm still doubting its placement, I'll tell you all about it when I'm close to a finish. It's not something noticeable.

Thanks for visiting. Happy Stitching!


  1. I really love Christmas Eve, but the online shop I used didn't have it. Where did you get hold of your chart? Your start looks fabulous as usual:)))

  2. Wow, you got lot of stitching lined up for coming months!! Good progress on your piece:)

  3. Christmas Eve is progressing nicely. Some lovely charts there

  4. It will be fun to watch your progress on all these. Gorgeous progress on Christmas Eve! Great work.

  5. Great stash & lovely progress on your project!

  6. Nice progress and great new stash.


  7. Lovely PS stash. I wonder what the omission is? Something which looks like reindeer poop?

  8. Wow, even more new stash. And Up on the Rooftop is a great find.
    And great progress on your project.

  9. I am amused at the flying teddy bear! And looking at Bees, that very impressive that chart only has four colors. It will be interesting to see it worked up!
