I stole some time away from my stitching for customers to stitch the "E" on Be Merry and a stripe or two of pattern-stitch on the fringe below. I also tossed in some blue background.
The "E" is done in the slanted gobelin in red alternating with a single pink continental stitch. I like the look and it was definitely a quick stitch.
And I am madly packing and shipping finished Christmas items to customers so they arrive well before the big day. It's at times like this that I think of all the people who come in and comment "I want to work in a shop like this where I can sit and stitch all day". Me, too!
