February Ornament

I know it's been a while since I posted, but we've been really busy with taking care of M's mother when she was hospitalized after she fell, then with her funeral, and now trying to get her home packed up. I haven't been doing much stitching but did manage to finish the stitching on my February ornament. I'm not doing the actual finishing as I have several to stitch on each piece of fabric and don't want to cut them out until I have them all stitched. There will be a finishing marathon when all are stitched.

This one is from Vermillion Stitchery and their 2008 freebie. It is Hearts Snowman and is stitched with DMC threads on 28-count linen called Galaxy from Crossed Wing. It's a bit larger than I'd like, but thought the fabric was perfect for these designs.

Don't know when I'll get the chance to do another post, but know I'm doing my best to read all of your blogs even if I don't have the time to post any comments.

Until next time,

  5. A bit of stitching helps keep things 'normal' and relieves some stress -- not to mention the beautiful results!! Can't wait to see the finish!

  6. How cute! I've seen several people working on this one and I like your fabric the most.
