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

October IHSW: Four Down, One to Go

Hey Blog Buddies,

I got a lot of stitching done this weekend and was able to finish my current rotation item:  the fourth square of Laura J. Perin's American Quilt Collection, Holiday Ornaments Series 1:

The photo doesn't show how glitzy this piece is.
Half of the red is ribbon laced with metallic threads.
And, of course, gold metallic ribbon is used liberally.
It was a fun stitch (except for the metallic ribbon!).

To refresh your memory, here are the squares I've done so far:


The color isn't great on these, but you get the idea.
My plan is to have these finished as a cube.
These are all the designs in Holiday Ornaments, Series 1.
However, I just happen to have
another LJP American Quilt Collection chart
(Red Hot Peppers) which has a matching ornament pattern,
so I will be using that for Side 5 of the cube.
All I have to do is change the colorway a little.
The 6th side (bottom of the cube) will be a cotton print
'cause no one will ever see it!

And for those of you who are canvaswork fans,
have you seen LJP's latest, Harvest Moon House?
It looks like another must-stitch.
She has so many fabulous designs!
