My Time Stitching

And whatever else I have been up to…

Snow Love, So Sweet!

First finished ornament

If you read my post yesterday, you saw that I was working on creating my first ornament (other than a pillow ornament).  Well this is the finished product.  I am very pleased with how it turned out and after all the stressing I did about cutting up the stitched piece, it wasn’t so bad after all.  The pattern is “Snow Love” by Country Cottage Needleworks.  I stitched it on 16ct Dirty Aida and hand painted the snow with acrylic paint.  I used The Twisted Stitcher tutorial for making a flat ornament and the instructions were quite easy to follow.  I did have a bit of a problem creating the hanger as the cord I purchased was a little too thick to tie into a knot.  That is the reason for my ribbon bow on the top of the hanger. So next time I will try to create a cord from DMC floss.  Have never done that before.  But I am very happy with my first ornament and  I can definitely see me making more in the future.  And this ornament can hang out all winter and into Valentine’s Day 🙂  It’s such a sweet pattern.

I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas!  Enjoy the day with your family and friends as we celebrate the birth of Jesus.  Love and hugs to all!
