      Here is my progress on L’Hiver by Birds of a Feather. One of the most enjoyable pieces I have stitched in a long time (because you can make many mistakes and not have to frog 🤣).

      I hope the photo does not look gigantic (looks fine on my phone).

      Lovely! Your color choices, especially for the poinsettias, are spot on.

      This WIP must be a welcome break! What are you using for the poinsettias @Veena? Upon closer look it’s lovely and most unusual.

      @luv2stitch2
      , the poinsettias are in 3 custom colors: Old Maid of the Flash, variegated OMG Red 1133/35/41, and a combo of Yellow Spice 4165/Imperial Green 3337/OMG Red 1145.

      Thanks @luv2stitch2 (Brenda)for calling the beautiful Christmas color on @veena’s piece!! The colors are fabulous!

      I can’t find my original post about it but wanted to show you my Christmas banding by Carol of iStitch Designs.

      How do I add these to my media file??

      I figured it out!!! This was the final piece and I STILL need to finish it into a bell pull! But Veena’s color is a dead ringer for this weeks color. Perfection!!!

      FYI: the end was straight at the bottom but I liked someone else’s idea of a pointed bell pull finish. So…..

      Full Xmas design

      Hey @veena… May I ask what gold you are using in your piece? I wanted something a bit richer and brighter than the one in the variegated mini color and this gold seems to be both. Thanks so much for all your help!!

      The gold under the mini is the one I’m talking about! Used in the letters(?) I think. Thanks again!

      @jcash, your bell pull is so pretty! Which Weeks color is it?

      The gold letters in that picture is Liquid Gold 4177.

      @surbanmitre-org … my mistake!!! I got it confused with all the Perfect Reds.. but it’s open NOW!!! I just called it so it’s open!! Sorry for the confusion!!

      Thanks @veena ! I’ll have to see if I can call that color today; plus check my other golds too. I have some great ones collected now. The Rubbed Gold is gorgeous too!!
      The weeks color is called Noel.
