A Second For January and a First for February

This first ornament is a Freebie from The Drawn Thread called First Snow. I finished this a few weeks ago, but the original photo I took was pretty crummy. I re-photographed it today when I photographed today's ornament finish.

I stitched First Snow on a Silkweavers hand dyed I think its Spring Breeze, instead of making the snow flakes out of Smyrna Crosses I used Mill Hill Beads. The threads are a combination of DMC, WDW, and GAST. I used what I had on hand.


This second ornament I just did the finishing on today and finished the stitching on Thursday. This is Jeannette Douglas's Hope Needleroll Ornament from the JCS 06 Ornament issue. This is stitched using all the required threads, beads, etc. It is so pretty and very enjoyable to stitch! Jeannette really knows how to use specialty stitches and fibres for maximum effect.
