I'm feeling much better this week after last week's cold and general "tired" feeling! This past week I picked out some of the ornaments I want to stitch in Becky's Ornament Challenge:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I'm getting in the Christmas spirit and stitched this Shepherds Bush pincushion which I filled with crushed walnut shells instead of fiberfill to give it some weight. I really like the way they finish the edges with the ribbon and beads.
In addition to stitching the ornaments I have hopes of stitching this SB design -- Glad Tidings. It's not very large and I just love the little girl holding a flute (it's hard to see in the picture but take my word for it -- it's lovely)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Thanks for all your wonderful comments last week about my exchange piece. What you couldn't see in the picture was the fact that I used some fabric glue to put on the ric-rac and let's just say it didn't dry clear on the black fabric. I did stitch and finish something else this week and once it's received I will post a picture. I'm VERY HAPPY with how the second project came out.
Again, thanks for visiting my corner of the world and for all your wonderful comments:))
Have a great week.
