81. The Little Stitcher Winter Wood and Deer

The Little Stitcher Winter Wood and Deer

I used an old Christmas card to mount it, simply cutting a triangular shape in the card and using double-sided tape to fix the fabric to the reverse.  
The design is stitched over 1 on 32 count Vintage Grain linen, the same as the rest of the Advent Calendar.

78. Pixel Power Gandalf

Gandalf from Pixel Power
This was stitched on a piece of 28 count linen from a Crafty Kitten grab bag.

For those of you who wondered, the runes spell out Gandalf's speech while facing the Balrog on the bridge in the Mines of Moria - "You cannot pass.  I am a servant of the Secret Fire, Wielder of the Flame of Anor.  The Dark Fire will not avail you Flame of Udun.  Go back to the shadow. L.O.T.R."
