Heather of Stitching Lotus is the host of the 2014 Smalls SAL. You can click on the link above or on her blog link to find out more about our Smalls SAL this year. I'm THRILLED to be a part of this SAL this year and I plan on signing up for next year too!! It gets me to finishing all those little ornaments throughout this year that will be presents this Christmas......or for presents for upcoming birthdays!
This month I stitched a freebie chart from iStitch Designs called SNOW. You can find it her on Carol's blog, iStitch, and then go under her Freebies link to get the chart. And if you haven't checked out iStitch's blog fully, be sure to go back and see what wonderful projects that Carol designs up. I also heard that she is doing another Advent SAL this year so I will definitely be signing up for that once again.
Snow was such a fun stitch and I just chose my own colors from my stash. It is stitched on Sassy's Fabrics 32ct English Ivy, and I just used the same fabric for the backing material. The threads are Hand Dyed Fibers (HDF) B5200 white regular silk and the red is Perfect Red 6207 premium. I used 2 strands of the white regular silk and 1 strand of red premium. I LOVE this red silk!!!
Since all my Christmas decorations are still packed away, I did manage to find this adorable Christmas box that I received one year and photographed the ornament on top of it. Seeeee......that's why I need to keep SOME Christmas decorations out all year long.......for photographing new Christmas projects!!! hehe Ok....so my husband and family probably wouldn't understand that reasoning but hey....it works for now!
Thank you for stopping by to read and see what stitching projects I've been up to. Now I need to get back to some more stitching on another ornament! Some people have asked me if I ever get tired of stitching the ornaments. I reply and smile and say, "Never!" I just love to stitch up ornaments for my family and close friends!!!
