I've been stitching..
As you can see I've been working on the HAED ...this has page 2 nearly done.
I was hoping to finish this page before the New Year but it took a back seat to some holiday stitching. I've also been stitching on my Mirabilia...It's so close I can taste it..I'll post a photo of it soon.
This ornament has a story.
At the fall retreat Clare (no Blog) had stitched a small ornie...just like this one. I fell in love with it and the next thing you know she gave me a piece of fabric and some thread ..also the pattern and I was on my way to making this sweet little thing.
It is on 40ct... YES 40....linen and the thread is DMC variegated.1 over 2. There are 160 beads, yup I counted them.
I gave it to a very good friend of mine for Christmas.
Thank you Clare for enabling me. I love it and am no longer afraid of any ct. If I can do 25ct 1over1 or 40 ct 1over2. I can pretty much stitch anything. I enjoyed the challenge.
Have a good day
Stitch with happy fingers.
