Whew! Lots of stitching going on! First, my attempt at an ornament. I stitched Country Cottage Needleworks “Snow Love” about a month ago, but have been putting off turning it into an ornament. I was so afraid I was totally going to ruin it. And while it is not done yet, it is going ok so far. Here are some photos:
I think it is turning out pretty well! Right now the front is being glued to the back and is sitting under a stack of encyclopedia’s. The pattern called for 32ct Petit Point Linen in Raw/white. That fabric already has the snow dots on it. But since I am not a fan of 32ct, I stitched mine on 16ct Dirty Aida and then painted with snow with acrylic paint. Turned out pretty sweet if I must say so myself 😉 Once the pieces are dry, I will add some cording to finish it off. I will post another photo of the finished product when it is completely done, hopefully later today or tomorrow.
Now onto my stitchy progress on Siren and the Shipwreck:
And lastly, my final finish on Angel of Grace:
I finished stitching this back in January, and didn’t get it fully finished to give to my Mother for her birthday this summer. So I finished it this week, sewing the rod pocket, finishing the bottom into a point and adding the tassel. I think my Mom is going to love it as she loves Angels.
So that’s it for me today. Do you have a finish or are close to a finish for this year?
