Ornament finishes and UFO update...

Here are some ornaments I worked on last week. I tried finishing two circular designs for the first time and they are so-so....will need to use more batting next time.

Threads Through Time "Reindeer Garden"
2000 JCS

I omitted the reindeer from this design and added the initials for myself and I guess "Reindeer Garden" isn't really an appropriate name!

Threads Through Time "Poinsettias and Pines"
1998 JCS

I omitted the pines and gold urns in this ornament just using the green/red combo. DMC 3363 and 3771 are my two new favorite colors for Christmas ornaments.

With My Needle "Needleworkers Pocket"
2003 JCS

Obviously, I didn't finish this as a needlepocket, but loved the design. The pic looks "pink", but the design is actually stitched on coffee-dyed 18 ct w/ 3771 DMC.

Progress on SB "Herb Gatherer"......

I missed stitching last week on my UFO, but got in about 6 hours this past Friday night. I have finished the lady with the exception of beading and will start the border and herbs next week.


LK May Flip-It Stamp
