Purple Ornament

Ok, now that things have hopefully settled down a little bit I can try to return to a more regular schedule for cross-stitch J . What with the holidays (Happy Thanksgiving everyone!) and everything else I’m still not as far along as I’d like to be, but I’m getting closer. I’ve finished another ornament and this time it actually is an ornament haha. Yeah, that whimsical fantasy of not changing my mind about the designs I had picked- never going to last J . It’s ok though as everything will be more balanced now between stocking ornaments and ornament ornaments. Without further ado, here is the purple ornament, complete with difficult to see shiny threads:

Only two more stockings and one more ornament to go!
Have a great stitching week!

Little Green Stocking

Just a brief update this week. I did finish one of the stockings I had planned and got to start on the next ornament. I really liked the colors on this stocking (and on the others I plan to do too), so I may have to make a set for myself in the future J .

One more day of work and then my eight day work week will be over! I’m hopeful that then after a little rest I can finally get back to stitching.
Have a great stitching week!

Two Presents Down

I managed to finish off the gingerbread couple, which is a good thing as that is the largest picture I had planned. For mish-mashing patterns from different sources together I think they came out rather cute J .

Next I did a Christmas initial (to finish off a set that had been done previously) and I think the gold metallic really helps set if off nicely (at least in real life haha):

Slightly more exciting ornaments should commence now, as it was taking me forever to decide on patterns! Everyone else is getting a little stocking and then next year, if I give myself more time, I can be more creative haha.
Have a great stitching week!

What a Sweet Couple!

So this week has been more of the gingerbread people. The boy cookie is completely done and the girl just needs backstitch. Then I plan to put Merry Christmas and some holly leaves on there too to finish it off. 

Next I have the framed picture of the Phantom Sisters. I decided to show it on here because I don’t often (read: never, haha) manage to frame or finish off my projects. Since this one was a gift it did get framed though (and I did it myself with lots of help J ). I painted the frame last week and the picture was presented last night along with a sprite of Mimet from the Witches 5:



I actually didn’t frame Mimet in time but I plan to. Even so, the gift was well received J .
Have a great stitching week!
