Christmas SAL and a finish

I think it is ok: I don't think my recipient reads my blog...I am so excited though I have to show it!





It is my first finish on my new sewing machine with a proper walking foot.  I love it.  Proper quilting and finishing.  It is for an exchange and I am pretty sure the lady doesn't even know I have a blog so I should be ok showing it.  She wanted something on a winter theme in green..not the easiest combination!

I have made her something else to go with it but that will be a surprise.

I was hoping to have a finish for the first week of the Xmas SAL but real life got in the way.
I made a good start and will get it finished this weekend.





I'm stitching it on 28 count Trento Natural.

Here is the first section.  It will run over 9 weeks but the sections for the last three weeks are smaller as they are the weeks in the run up to Christmas.  I may also make some thread changes for the later section: the horse.  Yes, a horse rofl.

I'll give you and up to day key if that's the case!  After christmas the charts will be removed and will go on general sale so if you want it be sure to print it out!
