Me and my mom decided last week that we would spend today together and do some crafting with my daughters. Off course I brought something that I wanted to get done and decided to do some actual finishing on some of the things that have been stitched up and then put away. I am very happy about how much I actually got done.
First I finished this pinkeep. I left it at my moms since it is a gift for someone. I am not saying who, just in case that person reads my blog. I am pretty sure that she doesn’t, but I want to be safe.
I stitched this design by Margaret Sherry years ago! Never got around to making it into anything though. So I decided to make a pinkeep out of it and love how it turned out.
Lately I have been thinking about my stitching and how little I actually have of it. I seem to give almost everything I make away. So, I decided that I would start collecting ornaments that I make for myself. Stitched ornaments preferably. When I went through my box of stitched things I found a couple of projects that were just perfect for ornaments so I brought them along and finished them up!
Design by Helga Mandl. Stitched on 36ct Opalescent White Linen with DMC 4045 with a silver heart on top and silver/clear beads as snowflakes. Stitched in 2007.
From 2007 JCS Ornament issue. Design by Charland Designs Inc. Stitched in 2007.
I already have two finished ornaments! YAY! I have this vision of a real tree (I don’t like the fake ones) with lots of stitched and hand finished ornaments on it. One day, that vision is going to come true 🙂
I hope you all had a great weekend!
