Christmas finishes to show
Boy, does it ever get busy when you have a house full of family? We have been running every day, doing fun things for Christmas. Tonight is the Messiah sing-a-long! Should be fun! Anyway, I have some finishes to show... and two more in the process will be posted later. This design is by The Sampler Girl, one of my favorite designers! I have titled it "I Heard the Bells", used 32-ct. R&R Alabaster linen, and Dinky Dyes Bush Christmas thread. This is part of one of my most favorite Christmas songs, and I LOVE the version by Casting Crowns! Well, wasn't that fun? Moving on... This one is for the ornament exchange at my LNS. It is a modified verion of a chart by The Sampler Girl called Christmas Eve Flight. Over one, on a scrap of 25 count sparkly fabby, using random DMC threads. This is my FAVE!! It is from the 2010 JCS Ornament magazine, called Merry and Bright, by Country Cottage Needleworks. It is sitting next to my new animated snowman that I got at our auction at work. When you press the button in back, the snow (glitter) moves around, and there are varying colors too. Love it! And this is 'Sew Peaceful' by Carol at Istitch, one of many really cute charts I have to stitch. This went to a friend at work. Hope she likes it... And finally, I finished-finished the Joy ornie from the 2009 JCS Ornament issue. It is hanging on my ornament tree right next to me here at the computer. Kinda cute! I have a couple more to show, plus the family has been stitching away during their stay and I will post those pictures later tonight. Hope you are enjoying this Christmas season! Hugs.
