Dec 14/10



Sorry for the sideways picture, I keep forgetting to rotate my photos before uploading. The Dimensions series of postage ornaments that I have been working on is now complete and ready to be distributed! I bought 2 of each one to make a total of 12 which are currently hanging on my privacy screen by the patio door. Now to finish all of the other ornaments I have stitched.......

Number 2



A highly modified ornament from Cherished Stitches - stitched with #4 Braid instead of floss, left off the border and added crystals. I do like the way it turned out though.

New Ornament!


I haven't stitched in ages, but finally finished an ornament. This is from the 2008 JCS issues from the Cat's Whisker's Studio. I stitched the ornament in Vicky Clayton's Deep Ocean and Delica beads instead of the recommended fibres.

Two stitched


Just completed the flamingo today.  It is a Claire Crompton design.  And the mitten I completed on Wednesday which is a Ursula Michael design.   They were both easy and quick, but also very cute and pretty too. In the pattern for the mitten there were beads, but I am not adding those.   I know who I will give them to for Christmas!  :)

Both these designs are favourites, which I have stitched many times. Both are stitched with 1 strand on 22 count white hardanger. The candycane is adapted from Designs With Scissors' Calendar chart in the Feb 1989 issue of Leisure Arts. The stocking is adapted from LA's Christmas Caboodle leaflet.

Sept 28/10

It has been a while since I have posted any pictures of the ornaments I have been working on so my apologies for such a big post!

Lizzie Kate is a big favourite of mine and I can not resist her ornaments because they are both festive and funny. All of the L*K's have been stitched on 28 count even weave from my odds and ends purchase at the LNS and stitched with what I call my mystery threads. I like playing around with the floss and fabric colours to see what *happens* in the end! These patterns are all from the Tiny Tidings series.




In other stitching news, I am also greatly enamoured with this series of kits available from Dimensions. I love birds and stamps so I bought two of each of the series and have been stitching like a mad person. There are two of each of these in my pile to be finished both for the back stitching and the actual ornament finishing:
