Holiday brings in Christmas

We went for a short holiday, and I took my Official Holiday Piece with me: Victoria Sampler here I go! I finished the tableau with baby Jesus and the parents last time in July, and now I managed to put a lacy line and a shepherd with a sheep in. Not much but better than nothing with 2 little ones next to lake Balaton.

Heirloom Nativity Sampler - The Victoria Sampler
Anyag / Fabric : 32 ct Smokey Pearl Zweigart
Fonal / Floss : selyem, a mintaív szerint / silk as in the kit

Fishing in the heat - lots of catch!

I continued the Fishes: I made some turtles, a huge pike with some minnows and some other fish which are really nice but I do not have a clue how they are called. All are ready to be stitched around, which takes quite a while. I use my Bernina program 4 settings 1 / 2 for the big onoes, 0,7 / 1 for the smalls. For the pike's spots I use straight stitch with length 1.
