I love, love, love…did I say love? working on ornaments for myself. They are short, quick and to the point. Speaking of point…these little bags are by What’s the Point?
I love to stitch ornaments for my tree in the season, so I worked on these last year during the month of December for this years tree. I have a few more out yet at the finishers and I am sure that they will be back in plenty of time. These are finished open and are just the right size for a little cash from Santa. A stitching friend of mine has many of these finished bags for the gift recipients in her family. They hang on her tree with a “little something” extra in them on Christmas morning. What a great idea!
I do love these bags and Brenda Hart has all these great little background stitches in her books. It is her idea too to use 4mm River Silk and ruche the bottom and the strap handles. The finisher works her magic and I have these great new additions for my tree this year. Of course as always I look for that new cat ornament to add to the collection.
The Keep Calm Ornaments are on bars and just waiting to be stitched!
Meredith gave me a few ideas for these and I almost started on one last night…almost! But no I had to tell myself no as I have to finish this piece that is going to be the death of me yet. Small, but packs allot of punch. As much as I have restitched and restitched this, I could have finished 4 of them!
We have been having beautiful weather here in America’s finest city. Summer like temperatures which will come to a screeching halt in a few days as they say rain is on the way. We need the rain so it will be a welcome sight. It is a wonderful way to spend the day, holed up on the couch with a cup of tea, the felines and my stitching!
Notice where a certain someone’s paws are? AlleyCat isn’t there somewhere else you can be? and until next time…keep on stitching
