Some Ornament Finishes

Hi Everyone,

Look at this; another blog posting! I'm on a roll! 

Last night I finished up some ornaments and I wanted to show you the photos here.

First up is "Happy Snowman" from Sheperd's Bush.  I added the seed beads for the snowflakes (the pattern called for JABC snowflakes) and I worked up the adorable sheep with all french knots vs. cross stitches.  I used a combination of over-dyes and DMC and stitched it up on a remnant I had in my stash 2 over 2.  Can you see the snowball trim hanger? LOVE IT :)

Secondly is "Jingle Jingle" by Lizzie Kate's Tiny Tidings XIX.  This is done up using the suggested DMC with white seed beads added and stitched up on a 28 ct. remnant 2 over 2.  Looks like mushroom.  I love the playful fabric and ribbon combination on this one, and I also used a white satin flower on the top of the bow that ties in some of the white beads as well.  Next one will have jingle bells of some kind.

Finally, here is "Seven Pines" by Little House Needleworks stitched on 32 ct. Rue Green Linen 2 over 2 using the suggested DMC. I love the look of the calico print with the plaid ribbon that pulls in a different shade of green.  (Have I mentioned how much I love snowmen?)

Don't forget about my Facebook page for items for sale.  I also take on finishing jobs throughout the year so feel free to reach out if you would like to discuss pulling some of those finishes out of the pile and getting them on your tree! 

Also---still time to enter my contest (see post from October 16th) and guess how many ornaments I finished in 2013.  

Have a great rest of the day and remember to Just Keep Stitching! ~Nicole
