I've been doing some stitching!
First up is another ornament for my little tree:
This is a French design that came as a supplement with a past issue of the now defunct De fil en aiguille magazine. I like French designs for their use of shading with threads and lack of a lot of backstitching!
Next up is a design from Homespun Elegance:
I got some birthday stash from 1-2-3 Stitch's last sale :) I changed the colors up in order to use some of my specialty threads. I purchased an 'oops' pack of Dinky Dyes threads a while ago and I thought that the variegated pastel colored thread would look just right here.
My Favorite Boy is home sick today with bronchitis and pink-eye! I don't think he's contagious anymore, but I wanted him to have a rest from school for a day or two. We are going to make hot cross buns together this afternoon: I think he's just most excited about putting the icing on - and eating them of course!
Thanks for visiting; have a wonderful day :)
