I was at my JoAnn's store today with a friend and we came across a new Gingher Designer series scissors:)
This scissors name is Barbara. I was happy of course to score these! It seems like JoAnn's does not carry as many of these designer scissors as they used to. There where only 3 eight inch scissors and 2 four inch scissors. I assume that there was 3 four inch scissors too. JoAnn's use to get at least 6 of each size but that number seems to have dwindled.
This Blackbird Design stitch is Give Thanks Sewing Box.
This was stitched on 30 count coffee dyed linen using DMC.
I painted a paper mache box amd mounted the piece on top. I trimmed the edge with some coffee dyed chenille trim. I really liked how it turned out. This piece was suppose to be mounted on a Lone Elm Lane wooden box, which I would love to have but I went with a little more cost effective way of a finish. Someday though I think I will buy a Lone Elm Box!!
This is one of the things I finished yesterday.
Then I got on a roll with finishing. I stitched these two ornies last year. They were just waiting to be finished. So now I have an ornie for two of our grown children.
Thses two ornies are for our Granddaughters. I stitched them earlier this year.
This is a Little House Needleworks design--Happy Hearts stitched on 32 count Cameo Rose with DMC threads.
Both were stitched back in January.
I stitched these ornies for 3 of the 4 of our Grandsons.
Lizzie Kate-Tiny Tiding XIX stitched on 32 count tea baked linen with DMC.
I stitched two of these in August and one in October.
Since this will be Grandson number 4's first Christmas I stitched up this cute little bonnet ornie.
I stitched this ornie for our youngest son and he is now 26!!!! Where did that time go?
So I have stitched this for each of our grandkids for their first Christmas.
This is just another view.
And here is the back of the bonnet. Sorry about the picture. I am just not very good at picture taking. Should take a class on that!!
I decided to stitch one ornie for each of our grandkids every year. I should have really thought about that because now we have 6 grandkids and I am sure we will have more since 3 out of our 6 children haven't had amy children yet. Someday I maybe spending all my time just stitching ornies!!!
Well at least I have all my ornies done for this year and I am thankful for that.
I just finished stitching this piece on Monday and started the finishing process but ran out of time to get it done.
With Thy Needle and Thread--House of Blues and Browns stitched on 32 count Natural with Sampler Threads.
Well Folks that's it for now.
Thanks for stopping by.
