Just this past week I received an absolutely stunning mini quilt and ornaments from Debbie of woolensails....
The embroidery on this piece is absolutely fabulous!!! I love it!!! I think I sent her half dozen emails about how excited I am that I can call this piece "Mine, mine, mine"!!! lol! Really, it truly is an amazing piece... the design, the tiny stitches, the aging of the fabrics... I'm just plum crazy over it!!! Debbie also sent along some snowman ornaments... stitched to perfection with a wonderfully soft pine scent to them... ahhhhhhh... smells like Christmas!!! :-) I still can't believe these are "Mine, mine, mine"!!! Thank you, Debbie!
I also have some finishes to show... I made these for a Secret Santa swap. Finished them at nearly the last minute... and barely remembered to take a picture before adding them and a few extras to the package and run them to the post office...
First is "Kringle's Crow" by Nan of Threadwork Primitives. It was stitched with Gentle Art threads 2 over 2 on 32ct. linen. Stuffed with wool snippets and backed with a dark red wool.
Next is "Christmas Tree" by Jenny of Country Rustic Primitives. This was stitched with DMC threads 1 over 2 on 32ct. linen. Also stuffed with wool snippets and backed with same dark red wool and then I added a tiny rusty jingle bell on a rusty safety pin.
And... just to keep the red theme going... I stitched up a little woolen Christmas bird...
A lot of stitches both to and from this week! :-)
I'm a very lucky (and happy) gal!
We did pick out our Christmas Tree last Sunday... spent yesterday decorating the tree and adding a little bit of Christmas here and there throughout the house... I hope I can get some good pictures to share with you during the next couple of days!
Until next time... Stay healthy and keep on smiling!
