Hello dear stitching friends! Oh my, Christmas really is just around the corner! I have been working on some Christmas ornaments these past few weeks - here are some that I would like to share with you today:
This beautiful Christmas tree is a segment from Vintage Christmas by Country Cottage Needleworks and is stitched on self-dyed 28ct evenweave. It is finished as a hanging pillow ornament and is backed with the fabric pictured. I changed the colours to a more traditional, vintage colour way and I just love how it turned out - I think I will use more segments of this design for ornaments!
This little cutie is a freebie by Carmela and was such fun to stitch. It is stitched on light blue linen in DMC threads and also finished as a hanging pillow ornament. It is backed with the adorable snowman fabric pictured.
I have also been doing some needle painting. This little piece is called Cerise Anemone and is from Trish Burr's book Needle Painting Embroidery: Fresh Ideas For Beginners and is finished as a pinkeep.
I have really been enjoying the needle painting and hope to start a new project soon - after I do some more Christmas stitching, of course!
The sun has been shining and the temperatures rising here in our corner of the world and the summer flowers are starting to show their colours! Here are some pics of my Hydrangeas:
They are a stunning pink this year and almost ready for picking!
That's it for this post - enjoy the rest of the week and Happy Stitching!
