Joy.....


I have been stitching away on CHS "Frederick"
but couldn't resist the urge to stitch this
ornament after seeing  Lee's (Lake Stitcher)
wonderful adaptation, which I just loved by the
way.   Yes, I just had to order the PTP Phoenix fabric to "borrow" Lee's colorway, but I
decided to play with this brown linen
while I waiting on my order.

Little by Little "Joy in the Snowflake"
2011 JCS Ornament issue
32 ct. brown linen w/ Victorian Motto threads

This has to be one of my favorite designs in
the new JCS ornament issue.  Although I love
the suggested thread colors, I am very pleased
with the look of the red and cream on the
brown linen.  Too large to be an ornament,
this will become a little pillow to tuck
away in a basket this holiday.


blue joy
Yummy blue from Victorian Motto!

This was a pretty quick stitch and since I
love the original blue/brown combo, I now
want to stitch it again with blue on the brown
linen.  I also got my red fabric so I will be
stitching it using Lee's green/creme colorway! 

Good thing I like this ornament!

These will have to wait though.....
I am determined to finish Frederick first!
