I highly recommend that you check out The Floss Box. Emily has tons (and I mean TONS) of freebies on her site for both cross stitch and embroidery. You can also purchase her very reasonably priced patterns and download them in minutes.
Fabric: 30 ct. Northern Cross Linen by Norden Crafts
Fibre's: as charted
Finish to be determined :)
I'm trying to catch up on the monthly ornaments so I can start this years ormanents. I'm pondering how to finish all of them. I'm pretty sure I don't want to do pillow ornaments, I'm kinda tired of them.
I'm really happy with this finish:
Travelling Stitcher by Little House Needleworks
Fabric: 32 ct. Lambswool linen by Wichelt
Fibre's: Crescent Colors as charted
Finished onto Impie, Hattie & Bea Project Keeper
I did what some of you out there might view as the unthinkable and used Steam-A-Seam to attach the stitching to the project keeper. I thought long and hard about it and decided I was okay with doing that.
I also finished another one of my February goals, my HoE Reindeer ornament! Pictures will be shown after my partner receives it. :)
Now it's onto my final goal for February! Merry Christmas by the Letter by Lizzie Kate.
Look at all the snippets from my stitching in January (trust me I looks like more in real life!) I really did do a lot of stitching last month and there is my proof. Aren't my jars pretty? Michael's had them 40% off today :)
I know in my head the stitching I'd like to accomplish this month and thought recording it here would help me actually do it! So here goes:
- finish finish and mail my Reindeer ornament for HoE by the 7th (8 days ahead of schedule!)
- finish stitching Travelling Stitcher by LHN (I'm "THIS" close to being done)
- finish stitching Red House in Winter ornament by LHN
- stitch "R" and "I" on L*K's Merry Christmas by the Letter (long term goal is to have this finished & framed for my mom for Mother's Day)
