Piece finish Happy Dance for Nativity as of 29.02.12

I'm really pleased with the progress that I've made on the Nativity.  I'm  keeping up with stitching one piece a month and have now completed the largest piece.  So doing a small happy dance for a piece finish.  I have now completed 16.7% of this project.


I've mainly be concentrating on the Baby Patchwork Birth Sampler as the baby I am stitching it for is due to be born mid-March and I want to get it finished as soon as I can after he is born.  I've completed 1,232 stitches since my last update which now makes it 37.9% complete.

Did you make the nativity up or did you buy a pattern?

Hi Greta unfortunately I'm not talented enough to have designed the nativity myself. It is from the December 2004 (Issue 112) Cross Stitch Collection Magazine. It is also available to purchase from here http://www.themakingspot.com/cross-stitch/pattern/nativity-scene. It is recommended to be stitched on perforated paper but I am stitching it on plastic canvas as I feel it will be more durable.
