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!
