2 Finishes to Share

Red House in Winter by Little House Needleworks
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.

Beautiful finishes! I love the Traveling Stitcher and did that one myself awhile ago! Wish I had thought of Steam a seam it would have saved me lots of time!

Both are beautiful stitches, I have the Red House in Winter ornament to do and just love the red colour on the house but I must be good and finish WIPs (all of them) first! I don't know of Steam a Seam here in England but it sounds like a stitcher's dream to me! xxx

Steam-a-Seam??? I've never heard of it. What is it?

Melanie said...

Super duper on these!
What's a little steam-a-seam between friends? We'll never tell. ;^)

Carol said...

Two darling pieces!! I don't know what Steam-A-Seam is either, but if it is less work, it's for me!!

Great ornament, if you're oaky with using Steam-A-Seam go for it!!

Nancy Lee said...

Steam-a-seam is the best thing in the whole wide world...and many props to you for using it. It's time we spoke up about things that save us time and frustration. I mean you already stitch over two, so you've earned your chops! Lovely work!

Congratulations on a wonderful finish!!! I have the Travelling Stitcher at home and I am tempted to pull it out and start working on it almost everyday. I need to get the blasted Richmond sampler finished so I can start something new soon!!!
Oh, and since you and I speak the same lingo - it was raining cats and dogs here in KY yesterday! ;-)
