I think I’m starting to get my stitching mojo back! I did a couple of ornaments for friends… you’ve seen these before, but here they are again with new names! These are the Victoria Sampler Virtues ornaments with names replacing the virtue words. People just love these and they are so quick and easy that I end up making them every year! I know I’ll do more so I just keep all of the fabric and floss and ornament forms kitted up:
I also started a new project – The Drawn Thread Perennial Border This thing calls for a huge amount of colors for such a small project that only has color in the outer most border of the project… How many greens do you really need??? 🙂 I like it though and the flowers look like lots of fun to stitch – lots of different kind of stitches. Here’s what it will look like, hopefully, when I finish it.
My progress so far, and all of the floss….
You can just barely see the whitework I’ve started in the middle. I’m using the recommended thread and fabric and I’m hoping it’ll pop a bit more once I’ve added more of the textural stitches. Its platinum fabric with white DMC. Maybe I should’ve used the extra white stuff? Or maybe perle cotton? Or maybe I pulled 28 instead of 32 fabric? I just hope it all works out in the end.
