I wanted to show off the wreath I made to go over our fireplace. It was really easy to make and took about 15 minutes. I think it took longer to hang it than it did to make it! In case you are wondering..You get one big wreath and 2 smaller wreaths. Use floral wire to tie the two smaller wreaths to the larger one to make the ears. I added a red and white polka dot bow in the middle for Minnie Mouse. I decorated it with cross stitched Disney ornaments.
Bobbins! I have slowly started switching from floss bags to bobbins. It is a VERY long and boring process. I have one of those floss winders but I don't like it. So I am doing it by hand. I would love any advice you may have for making this easier.
I did try to get my husband to help me while he was watching football. He did a great job right??? I would agree except he didn't write the number on the bobbin or put the thread back in the baggies so I know what to number it. Sigh.......
A HUGE thank you to my friend Cathy on the Mystic Stitch boards. I have been looking for this pattern for a while and she had it in her stash! She sent it to me so I could stitch. It just reminds me of my Jane Austen books/movies. It looks like a house that would be in one of the novels.
This is the ornament I am making for a Christmas Ornament Kit exchange in my Ozark Samplers group. Everyone picks out a pattern from the current year JCS Ornament issue. We kit it up for each person in the exchange. When the day is over, you have around 7 or 8 ornaments kitted up and ready to stitch!!! It is alot of fun! However, I have a predicament. The pattern calls for white snowflakes and swirlys. The fabric I have chosen is below. Basically, you can't see white on white. So should I add a lilac color or just use the pinks/aquas/greens for the swirlys?
