WIPW - Holiday Stitching

Happy New Year!
Here is the first Work In Progress Wednesday report for 2016.

I was lucky enough to have the time and opportunity to work a number of Canvas stitches on the

Pile' em On
Underneath the colourful Half Rhodes stitches of last year, 
there are Leviathan Stitches in green.
Beside the Half Rhodes stitches there are three Norwich stitches, the top one was worked last year and the other two this side of 2016. 
Next to them are Diagonal Cross stitches in green and blue,
then a set of Underline stitch in variegated blue, 
and underneath Rice Stitch
The Underline stitches and Rice stitches can be seen in this picture, too, on the left.
Then we've got Italian Cross stitch in blue, Montenegrin stitch in grey, and Oblong Cross stitch in variegated light blue.
The very compact grey stitches are half worked Upright Crosses, and so are the green ones.
The needle is resting in a set of proper Upright Crosses.
As you can see there are still a lot of blank areas to fill...

Everything looks beautiful on your stitching. I even don't know the names of most of them.
Are you working after a book? Or is it a challenge or tutorial? I also love the chicken scratch of your older post.
Happy New Year to you!

I love just looking at the various stitches. So neatly stitched and butted up together. I don't know if it's the pastel tones that make me think it would be wonderful as a baby blanket or the softness of the piece.
Watching it grow has given pleasure to many through 2015 and seems likely to continue this year also.
Thanks for the greetings and I hope 2016 is all you'd wish for.
