Remember when I shared with you this little stitch I was doing for my charity's animal shelter project?
Well, I turned it into this...
It was fun and I'm growing more confident in these types of finishes.
I also spent some time the past few days making some other kinds of pretties.
This is a little pumpkin pin cushion ~ very much just a rough draft of what I have in my head. But a cute start at least, lol.
And two ornaments. These can easily be put on my tree, but since they aren't too "Christmassy," I can leave them out year round as decoration. Right now they are nestled in my grandmother's china cabinet.
This one is 3 inches around.
And this is a larger 4 inch one.
All the embroidery from the past few weeks got hand washed and is now hanging to dry. I'll iron them tonight and then mail them off tomorrow. They are going into a raffle to help a cancer patient with expenses.
And yes, I am certainly still cross stitching too. :0) This is Teresa Gil's pattern, Edwardian Beauty: Elizabeth. I am so close to finishing the stitching on it and that is super exciting because it will be time to deck her hat out in silk ribbon roses, beading, jewelry and lace on her dress. I love it!
Hopefully by this time next week, I'll have the cross stitching done on her and can then move on to her embellishments. I'll share lots of pic here when I get to that point! :0)
