I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

Another Ornie

The great thing about ornaments is they only take about a week (if you're me--I'm not the fastest stitcher) and then they're done!

Here is LHN's Cardinal Winter.

Still a little wavy, but finishing will fix that.

I used a 32-count ecru evenweave
instead of the recommended cocoa-colored 30-count linen.
And it's really a solid color,
despite how it looks in the photo.

As a result of my fabric choice, the  DMC 712 recommended for the snow and the "Tweet" was too tone-on-tone, so I changed the snow to CC Bamboo and the lettering to DMC 436.

I'm hoping to get one more ornie finished before my next Guild meeting in July, so that I can give all three to one of our finishing wizards.  When I get them back from her, they will definitely be making a second appearance on this blog, because they will be fabulous.

Thanks for visiting!
