Some Christmas Finishes!

It is finally December and the weather and the Christmas spirit is heating up here in Cape Town!  I have some Christmas stitching and finishing to share.

I really enjoyed stitching this LHN ornament from this year's Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue.  It is called 'Fresh Fallen Snow' and is stitched on self-dyed fabric in DMC threads and finished as a hanging ornament, backed with red fabric.


I stitched this cute little Tra la la piece earlier this year and finally did the finishing.  It is stitched on self-dyed fabric in DMC and House of Embroidery stranded cotton.  It is also finished as a hanging ornament and is backed with green marble fabric.


I'm working on a lovely piece by Atelier Soed Idee - it is called 'Scandinavian Christmas' and I'm stitching it on self-dyed fabric in the recommended DMC colours.  The suggested finish is a Christmas card holder, but I think I might finish it as a pillow.


That is all for now - I'm off to visit some blogs :)  

Until next time - Happy Stitching!

Michelle

Wonderful job on your ornaments, Michelle! Don't you love that LHN design--I don't know if I'll get around to stitching it this year, but it's definitely on my "must stitch" list :)

I love your finishes and also your WIP. The Tra la la is especially dear to me, I have stitched it for my parents two years ago.

Scandinavian Christmas... it can only be beautiful! Looking forward to see it finished :)

I love that Tra la la design - I've wanted to stitch it for SO long! Maybe I'll treat myself to it one of these days! I love how you finished it.

I love the trim on Fresh Fallen Snow. It's as if the design is resting on a snow bank. It's lovely. :)
