A Good Stitching Weekend

I started and finished 2 projects this weekend. One is for a gift so I can't share it until it is received. The other is my March ornament for the 2009 Christmas Challenge.

I stitched a freebie design of Danybrod's called Primitive Bird (oiseau primitif). It is stitched on 32ct. Lambswool Jobelan with DMC thread.

It turned out exactly how I hoped it would. It was a little tricky on the finishing, but I used a great little tool by Fiskars called a 12 in 1 Sewing Multitool. One of the tools is a stuffing tool--works great! I got this tool from Jackie, one of my stitching friends, at our retreat. Thank you Jackie! I'm only sorry it took me so long to use it. But I don't think you need it necessarily when you your stuffed shaped is just a square.

Have a good week,

Congratulations on the finish. It looks fantastic.

I was admiring it earlier today when I saw it on the Freebie Gallery Blog.

This is a great ornament. I could imagine it would be a little tricky to finish, but you have done an excellent job.
