Christmas Stitching

I stayed home from work Friday because I caught a cold (thanks hubby).  The good news is, I was able to get a lot of stitching done.  The bad news is, I couldn't do a video because of all the sniffing and sneezing, so this blog post will have to do. 

I finished all of the Lizzie Kate ornaments from the Tiny Tidings XXII leaflet. I had so much fun stitching these.  I used 28 ct. Monaco that I tea and coffee dyed and the called for threads (except I used DMC B5200 instead of Weeks Whitewash). 



I mounted these on sticky board and then sprayed the back with Aleene's Tacky Spray and then put the little ribbon on the back and then the wool felt.  I cut the wool felt along the edges with pinking shears.  They were so easy! 

I stitched and finished the 1989 Prairie Schooler santa from the Santas Revisted II leaflet.  I also used 28 ct. tea and coffee dyed Monaco using DMC thread (2 over 2). I was going to make this into an ornment, but it turned out so big.  I ended up mounting it on mat board and then mounting another piece of mat board with fabric and sticking them together with the tacky spray. I clipped it to this frame I got at Hobby Lobby. 


My Lizzie Kate Christmas ABC's are less than halfway done and I think I'm going to put it away until next year.  I also restarted Lizzie Kate's 4 Seasons.  I was originally going to do them all on one piece of fabric and changed my mind after seeing Priscilla's finished individually.  She has them displayed on a stand that can be found at Hobby Lobby or Michaels and I'd like to see if I can find one like it. I think they look so cute!  


Lastly, I have been working on my Smith Sampler by The Scarlett House.  I'm determined to get it finished soon!  I just need to get the top section and border finished.  I'm getting there!


40 ct. Vintage Meadow Rue, silk threads (1 over 2)

With Bradley starting college next fall, I'm going to really try to stitch from my stash in 2018.  I have a lot of samplers in my stash kitted and ready to go, so we'll see if I can do it! Hope you all have a great Christmas and Happy New Year.  We'll be headed down to Florida at the end the week, so I'll will be back with a video in the new year!
