Here is the Sweetheart Tree Holiday Holly Biscornu, finished as an ornament with a beaded hanger:
I have to say, I didn’t like stitching this AT ALL…. I have vowed never ever use opalescent or any other sparkly fabric! There were times that I just wanted to toss this and start again on some really nice 28 count evenweave. I don’t think the effect of the sparkly fabric was worth the headache of stitching on it. NEVER AGAIN
So, I finally fnish and get to the finishing part of the project, thinking that this was the easy part, and either my beads were too small to fit over the end of the beading needle… or… the thread I used to sew the biscornu shut and attach the beads would get tangled on every other stitch!
However, I can say that I’m really happy with the way it looks now that its all finished. 🙂
I’ve been thinking about what I’m going to work on next… the choices are:
- Start Winter Getaway by M Designs
- Start Snowflakes by Little House Needleworks
- Work on my much neglected Alpine Seasons by Chatelaine
For the new starts, I have everything I need to start right away with no shopping required, which sounds appealing right now. What do y’all think?
