Winter Whisper #2


Where has January gone?  It just seems like yesterday I was celebrating the New Year and now here it is, almost the end of January.  Well, I guess that does mean that we are that much more into winter and closer to Spring 😉

I finally received the Hornbook and finished Winter Whisper #2 for my Mom.

Winter Whisper for Mom

The hornbook had to be ordered from a different company than the one I did for the contest, and this one turned out to be a Navy Blue instead of Black.  The edges had the worn look of raw wood and it was smaller than the original one I had purchased.  But I thought it would work.  I used some white ink to make the worn edges more white and stamped the snowflakes all around.  I glued the finished piece onto the hornbook. I  made a bow from seam binding, glued it on and added a pretty, sparkly jewel.  My Mom really likes it.  I still have one more Winter Whisper to make, for myself, but have decided on a different finish.  The Winter Whisper design is now available for purchase on Passione Ricamo‘s website if you are interested in stitching this beauty.

I had planned on adding more today, but I am out of time.  I will post again tomorrow.  Until then, happy stitching!
