So I was a little worried that nobody would find my blog to sign up for the Traveling Stitcher! But guess I was wrong! I'll have a name to pass it along to by Friday.
I have a huge pile of stitched ornaments that have got to be finished! So I did a few this weekend. I am feeling a little more comfortable...I even sewed my trim on! I'm so proud of myself, I usually use fabric glue! (shh)
This poor little guy has been sewn and ready for almost a year, all I needed to do was sew the opening closed. Then I found this little ribbon and decided to add that instead of my usual cording! He's from an old JCS ornament issue.
This lovely guy was a freebie from Daffycat! I tried a few different combos for the cording before I got it about right.
This is a freebie out there somewhere, both are backed with the same fabric. Wasn't it a perfect match? I probably should have used a lighter brown for the reindeer, but I stitched him before I saw the fabric.
This little guy was a freebie on the internet. The pictures don't do it much justice! The fabric is a dyed brown with little spots of pink, and the thread matches it just perfectly. The four sides are stitched, a freebie online. The top and bottom are empty.
Oops I can see I need to push some pins down!
Everyone needs a stitched cherry pie, right? This has been stitched a long time, but took forever to find the right size pan! And to make the cording fit right, etc! I have no idea what to do with it, I just wanted it! :) It's from an old magazine, not sure which one!
This is my first circle EVER! I'm still trying to decide what to do with the edges, I'm going to ask my friend MD tomorrow.
My mom was here for a few days, and we took a bunch of stuff to the framers! She called and they are ready, after only about five days at her shop. I'm going to go pick them up tomorrow and meet MD for lunch! :)
Stitching and friends, can't beat that!
