Hello my friends.
Here are two ornaments I have finished.
From the 2011 JCS Christmas Ornament magazine.
Christmas Tree Cat,
by Briittercup Designs.
For the trim it`s Moda Vera Yoyo yarn.
Kath has this now.:)
Merry Christmas Drum.
By Wendy Peatross.
JCS Christmas Ornaments 2018 issue.
Once I had stitched design I counted 6 threads from the bottom
and back stitched over 2 in green across. At the top I counted 10 threads
back stitching again. This helped with the button hole stitch I used to
join the top and bottom pieces which are plastic circles covered with wool felt.
The top circle has a hole in it so the ribbon could come through for hanging.
The drum sticks are burnt match sticks,washed,with beads attached with sticky glue.
I am so pleased with this.
Well back on with my day, part of which is carrying on wallpapering.
Still haven`t found the first lot so with a few dollars off we paid $600 for more!
