Not a great pic , but the best I could get at the time ,and it's now been posted off to the next person in line.
So ,I thought I'd show the ornaments I made for Stitch and Pass it on . They haven't been shown on there yet , but they were received the beginning of last month , so I kind of feel I've waited long enough .
This is the chart we were to stitch from . As I was the first person ,the pressure was on , so I thought it would be nice to stitch both designs. I didn't have the recommended threads , so used DMC , making my own conversions up by eye , looking at the cover picture.The snowman doesn't show up quite as well as it could , as my fabric was a bit lighter then the called for , but I still think it looks nice.One of them was meant to have little dangly bits on the branches , but I wasn't too keen on it so left them off.The little cardinal button on the snowman is as charted , thankfully , I bought him separately. They were lovely to stitch , but it took me a while to get the sewing machine out to be able to finish. Overall , I'm quite happy with how they turned out. The person receiving them said she liked them , so let's hope so.
I have some other non stitchy pics to show , but I'll leave those for another day.
Thanks for dropping by,
