What materials did you use? 32- and 28-ct. linen, DMC cotton flosses, Mill Hill beads, Petite Treasure (metallic) braid

What are you most proud of? Finishing all four seasons plus Celtic Christmas. Like most stitchers, my stash is ... SABLE (stash acquired beyond life expectancy). After I did the first two, it took every ounce of willpower I had to move on to the third one and not go to one of my other beautiful patterns--but I did it!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? (1) Find a good tutorial on counted cross stitch, working with metallics and working with beads--these patterns are not meant for beginners and there are no instructions on how to work the stitches. (2) Check your fabric count--I accidentally picked up one piece of 28-count and one piece of 32-count linen, so my ladies are different sizes! (3) If you are want to frame them all the same, consider having your framer order enough frame when you finish the first one. It keeps you motivated to finish the others, and it ensures that if the frame is discontinued, you'll have enough.

Just beautiful - can't make up my mind which one I like the best as they are all "the best".

Thanks, Helene! You may not be able to make up your mind, but I like Noel best. I wish I'd done her on 32-ct. fabric instead of 28. After Noel, I like Summer. The rest are a toss-up. ;-)

I love all 5 of these beautiful ladies. Are they cross stitched or embroidered? Can I buy the patterns?

P.S. I'm glad you like them! I love them. I give away a lot of my work, but these hang in my bedroom.
