Away in the caravan over the weekend, I found time to do a little “slow stitching”, and finished off my “L is for Lantern” block. I’m using Michelle Ridgway’s Alphabet Noel pattern book for inspiration – some of her alphabet designs are stitched “as is”, while others have been changed a little. The brass lantern glows in the window with the soft light of the candle, guiding family members home for Christmas– that’s how I like to imagine it, anyway. The plan is to make a Christmas wall-hanging when all the blocks are finally stitched. But I’m in no hurry to reach the finishing line, I’m enjoying the process as I go along, one Christmas letter at a time.
