Here is my latest seam - it wasn't meant to look Christmas-y, really. I'm just trying to bring in the red from above left and the maroon from down below.
And on an entirely non-CQ note, my stitching is slowing down because of another project I've been working on - baby shower invitations. If you're interested, there's a pic further down. I found these baby letters in a magazine a long time ago, but the only letters were T, I and F. I modified them to keep the babies in them, but moved the borders of the letters around. I think it's pretty cute, even if I do say so myself!
