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

Ukrainian Ornie: A Finish-Finish!

Hey Blog Buddies,
I figure if I keep on finish-finishing ornaments myself, "someday" I will be adept enough to do it so that (a) they're to my liking and (b) I quit pulling my hair out during the process.  In the meantime, here is my little Ukrainian whitework project, finished as an ornament:

It really looks cute finished this way.
My first attempt at making the cording went awry.
(My cord was just a little too short.)
So I was determined that my second cord
would be long enough--and it was.
You can't see the tassels in this photo
because they hang about 12 inches
below the ornament!

If you would like to learn how to do this whitework technique
and live anywhere near northwest Indiana
(or would like to go on a road trip),
my Guild is hosting a workshop
on September 8, 2012,
and anyone is welcome to sign up!
And bring a friend!
We have lots of space now,
but the number of students is limited.
Click the photo of the ornie on my sidebar
to get all the details.
Or email me--that would work, too.

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
Thanks for visiting!

I love your ornament, and I wish I could be there in September, but that is a bit far for me.

Oh I wish I could be home during that time. I was born and raised in Gary even though I haven't lived there in over 30 years, I would love to attend this workshop. Unfortunately Sept 7th is my 36th anniversary and we will be on our cruse.

Beautiful ornament! I just posted a snap of my Ukranian table runner on my blog last week. It's such a pretty technique.

It's lovely, but I'm not up for that much of a roadtrip. I'm in southern Ohio, but I can barely stand two hours in the car.
