Christmas in July

I finished up Victoria Sampler's Jingle Bells Xmas tree farm last night. I love doing her samplers, and this one doesn't have any hardanger or drawn thread areas which I think is a first for me on doing VS pieces.
I used Jazlyn Silver skies fabric and used silks although I substituted with colors I had on hand of NP & au ver a soie(though they are very close to what was called for). Off to my mom it goes as she asked me to stitch this for her.
