One more January Stitchy Finish

I somehow managed a third finish for the month of January! I got this chart from sweet Becky a long while ago when she was de-stashing. I got started on it Monday afternoon and put the final stitches in it yesterday evening. This will be finished as the chart instructs so it can take its rightful place on my tree next Christmas. I haven't decided if I like the stark white yet, or if I will be coffee-dying it. Hmmmm....

Christmas Abecediaire Ornament from Historic Stitches
DMC floss on 32 count white Belfast linen
Stitched 1/25/10 - 1/27/10


The chart is up for grabs if anyone is interested. If more than one person wants it, I will draw a name on Monday night. Please leave your email address so I can contact you for an address if you win it.



I hope everyone's week is going well and that you're all getting plenty of time to put needle to fabric!

What a great pattern! I love the combo of red and white. I think I stitched an ornament from Historic Stitches once. It had different trees on it.

I'll opt out on the drawing as I'm stitching slower than SLOW these days, but I have to say it's a great design and it's so generous of you to pass it along!

Lovely stitching on the ornie.

STUNNING finish Kim! I love the contrast of the red against the white...but I'm sure I would love it just as much coffee dyed too ;)

Cari said...

I love your little snowmen in the previous post - what a fun craft for the kids.

Another finish, congrats! I love this and would be delighted to receive the pattern. My goal is to stitch an ornament a month and this one would be wonderful to add to my list (a perfect christmas gift for aunt). Thanks for offering to share it with us.

I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend.

Brigitte said...

Wow, a fifth finish this month. You are definitely on the roll.

Carol said...

I am so amazed at how much you get done stitching wise, even with the two bugs AND college courses, Kim! You amaze me!

The little ornament is darling--can't wait to see your finish/finish :)

The stitching looks perfect - I can't wait to see what it looks like made up. That's so funny about your mom and the Wizard of Oz. I have a sister who is terrified of the Flying Monkeys. I just finished it and will post a picture soon - don't show your mom!

Cheryl said...

That is really pretty! I love reds. Can you put my name in the hat for the chart please :)

Carol R said...

Suzanne said...

Personally I love the stark white - I think it makes the red just pop and looks so clean. I think it's just a matter of personal taste. I just found your site through Natalia. I wish I had found it earlier so that I might have had my name in the drawing. I haven't cross stitched in a number of years and the desire is certainly there. I've been looking for a windmill quilt pattern and actually have been considering the wild thing pattern. I am looking for a pattern that does not have a template. I cannot determine from Camille's pattern if it uses a template or not. Could you give me some insight into that? I have a friend who wants a king size Christmas quilt made from all Christmas fabrics. However, I thought the wild thing pattern with a plain white or ecru and then the Christmas fabrics would nicely accent the fabrics.

Your work is gorgeous. I know it is difficult to be away from your birth family and that base of support. I am glad that you have found solace in your crafts. Schooling and little ones is also a challenge. You are amazing and God will reward you for your faithfulness to your family and using your talents wisely.

Robin said...
