Joyeux Noel...

...in all it's framed glory! Here are a few pics at different angles/zooms.



Note: the cars in front of the frame are from a casino in Las Vegas. My dad won them (too bad they aren't the real thing) playing video poker when he lived there several years ago. The monkey is playing golf. It is a statue I picked up at Heilig-Myers back in 1997 or so when I worked there. He's draped in the lei's from my dad's 60th birthday party earlier this year. And yes, that is our little Christmas tree. Since we live in a single wide, there is really no room for a tree. I found this at a dollar store and love it!

I decided to pick up a frame for this stitched piece while at Wal-Mart today. I chose a darker wood color as I felt it would better accent the fabric of the piece. I am really pleased with the outcome! I may have to stitch this one again and again for friends and/or family!

Thanks Valerie for allowing me to partake in this SAL and I hope to join you all on another SAL in the future!

Hi there! Beautiful job on the Hallosal and on the stocking too! I have finished mine (stocking, I don't stitch the Hallosal sal) as well but I prefer your version with all the colours carefully picked. Bravo!
I'm off to your poetry blog, now.
Lots of hugs, sweet Julie!

This is a lovely piece, Julie. What are you going to stitch for the Christmas SAL?

I am stitching "Coming Home for the Holidays" for the Christmas SAL. It is a Dimensions Gold Collection kit that I picked up at my closest LNS (which is over an hour away, unless I go to Jo-Ann's or Michael's for supplies and they don't have much).
