So it has been a week since I have posted anything. I was quite sick for awhile and now I have a lovely, lingering cough. On the bright side, I have finished the second side of the ornament and found the ribbon and piping I am going to use for trim. Once it is completed I will post pictures of the ornament. I have also been busy working on finishing a couple other projects, mainly back stitching, something I wish I could enjoy, but I just don't. Perhaps it's because some of the charts I have are difficult to read and therefore difficult to figure out where to back stitch. I try to do it free style and sort of see where the stitches should be. I have a lot more success with the free style method than following all the crazy coloured lines all over the chart!
I also have some exciting news, I received my stash from Traditional Stitches yesterday!! Once I organize the threads and linens, I will post some pictures online. I am trying to figure out what design and linen to use to make my mom and mom-in-law's Christmas gifts. I have an idea of what to do, but need to play around with the colours and linens. I wish I had more! But alas, I must wait till after Christmas to purchase anything more.
