Finally Finished!

This was the welcome project for the Shepherd's Bush retreat from October 2012.  It has been sitting around being ignored for the past almost three years.  It is really cute, so I decided to finish it.  Each one of the designers at the retreat contributed a small pattern (or three) for the Christmas theme. Each stitcher decided the patterns to use and the placement of each pattern.
The border is stitched with DMC 935 and ST Red Currant.
The bird design was from Plum Street Designs, stitched with DMC 3011, 729, 612, 3021, and ST Red Pear.
The wreath design was from Jeanette Douglas Designs, stitched with DMC 3011, 612, 3021, and ST Red Currant and Red Pear.
The cat design was from Chessie & Me Designs, stitched with DMC 935,  612,  and 3021.
Merry was designed by Shepherd's Bush, stitched with DMC 3011, 935, and ST Red Currant and Red Pear.
The sheep design was also from Shepherd's Bush, stitched with DMC 644, 3011, 729, 3021, and ST Guacamole, and Red Currant.
The poinsettia design was from Jeanette Douglas,  stitched with DMC 3011, 729, 3021, and ST Red Pear.
I designed the place and date square, stitched using DMC 935 and ST Red Currant.  Completed July 4, 2015
