Slowly, the A block is getting filled in. I actually did a little more stitching after I took this photo, so the red angel is really taking shape now.
Above is the Christmas pattern booklet I purchased from the cross-stitch shop in Hobart whilst in Tasmania last week. It has instructions in 7 different languages! I don't think I'll be making any of the table cloths or serviettes, but I can see myself turning the little Christmas pictures into ornaments or possibly cards.
