ABC Christmas...

... for this Friday Frolic, I picked up a WIP from earlier in the year, called ABC Christmas by Lizzie Kate.

This is what it looked like when I picked it up early Friday evening...

By the end of the evening I had finished the word "Poinsettia" and started on the "S" for "Snowman"....

I then worked on it intermittently over the weekend (interspersed with other SAL stitching) and I finished quite a bit more.

Psst!  Do you want to know a secret?  Of course you do!  See the three "snowflakes" under the snowman?  Well, that are not meant to be there at all!  Just above the "W" there was a tiny reddish-brown mark (possibly blood from a pricked finger) which I could not remove (as the floss is overdyed I didn't want to try washing the piece), so I came up with the bright idea (well, I hope it is a bright idea) of adding three snowflakes like the one at the end of the word.  What do you think?  Does it work okay?  I am pretty happy with my solution.

This was a great FF piece to work on this weekend and I can see that others have had fun on their WIPs, too.

Have a great week, everyone,



  1. Good idea to save your work!

  2. Great idea to cover a spot with a snowflake.

  3. Great progress on this piece. And great solution to the blood mark problem. Noone would ever guess that the snowflakes are not meant to be there, lol.

  4. This is a really gorgeous LK design :o) So pleased to see you stitching on it again... Love your snow flakes!
    Hugs xx

  5. I love this design! Your snow flakes look as if they were meant to be there - thank your quick thinking that you were able to save your work.
