Yesterday I received my 2nd and 3rd ornaments for the Ornament Swap I am participating in.
This ornament is from Carol. It is "Candy Cane Wishes Noel Ornament" by Plum Pudding Needleart. It is stitched on 28ct. Cafe Mocha Country French linen with DMC Floss.
Isn't it lovely? I love it. It is stitched and finished just beautifully!
This next ornament is from Becky. It is called "Peace & Quiet" from Erica Michaels. It is stitched on 36ct. Meadow Rue with GAST & WDW.
Another beautifully stitched and finished ornament. Just love it!
Thank you Carol and Becky. I will treasure these forever. Can't wait to see what comes next.
A Great Find...
Awhile back I got this great idea to get a large glass jar with a lid to put smalls in. I have been searching but have had no luck. Well, last weekend, I was forced to do some reorganizing as I was looking for a particular project. Well, lo and behold, I found my glass jar--right in my own living room! It is perfect!
Isn't it great? The best part is that it will keep my stitched items DUST FREE! I will have to keep looking because as you can see, I am going to need another one very soon.
Have You Heard?
In the new issue of Cross-Stitch & Needlework, May 2009, there is a Reproduction Sampler of Adam and Eve. I had to go to Joann's the other day and picked up a copy.
This is like a lifelong project and I don't know if I will do the whole thing. I like it enough, but I figure I will be able to use the many motifs for different things for sure.
Well, that's all for today. I have been stitching on gifts and exchanges so nothing to share there yet. Have a great day.
