Cross Stitch display #2
Well, I spent quite a bit of time blog hopping to see all the displays...then remembered that I had not posted mine yet! I only have one to show, it is another JCS 2010 ornament. The Charlotte's Web Needlework, Christmas Magic. I frilled it up a little with the sheer ribbon.
I added a bead at each twist.
The backing fabric is from JoAnn's...I thought the swirls gave it flight...
The star charm is from Blue Moon
On a new thought, I have been accepted to participate in a Winter Exchange. We have not received our partner names yet, but I am so pleased to be able to join that I am getting started. I coffee dyed the 28ct cream linen and like the way it has taken.
This beaded pouch was fun to knit. I made it some time ago and think I will make another for myself. I have given them as gifts in the past. The beads are pre-strung on Perle Cotton #8. it measures about 3 inches at the base about 2 1/2 in length. The needles are double pointed #0000, but I finished them at the top with beads to make it easier. I love the turquoise birds that I found in Rockport MA to top one pair. I have had the porcelain hands forever..
Once again, Chookyblue did a great job of gathering friends .....thank you.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday...thank you for visiting..come back soon.........
