This was a freebie chart from Samplerbird Stitchery called Holiday Spirit. I stitched them on 32 count with DMC 115. I think they turned out pretty good.
After seeing Cathy B's Circling Angels by Sheepish Designs (OOP) I had to stitch up one for myself. I stitched it on 32 count with CC Ye Old Gold and GAST Maple Syrup. I also stitched my LHN ornie #11--Winter Forest. I stitched it on some coffee dyed 32 count with DMC. One more 2011 LHN ornie to go:) Just need to get the pattern.
I have been stitching the dictionary series by Cherrywood Designs. I have had "scissors" done for a couple of months. Had to dig through my frame stash and I found this one which I painted. I like the results on this finish.
I stitched this La D Da design called My Friend for my friend Lori's birthday--which was in September!!! Now I had the stitching done but just got it framed this week. I was so happy to find this frame in my stash.
I am sure you are wondering about my frame stash, well I have bought quite a few frames over the years at thrift and antique shops. I have had to stop collecting because I really have to many but it is nice to rummage through them and find just what I need. I guess I am cheap--I mean thrifty because it can get quite costly to frame your pieces. Plus I enjoy doing the framing myself.
Well there you go for now. I should get supper ready.
I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
