Finish Forty-Two

I'm a stitching machine! LOL! When I'm stressed, I stitch and most of you know I AM STRESSED ;o)

Today I completed another ornie from the 2007 JCS Ornament Issue. This is Peace by Country Cottage Needleworks -

I love, love, love this design! The colors are just gorgeous and they're just DMC too :o) I do like how the ornament was finished with the wool so I'll have to see about tracking some down. The fabric I used reminds me of Waterlily by Wichelt but it's Patina by Lakeside Linens.

I've already got the next project kitted up and it will get started today :o) I can't remember if I shared this already or not but my goal is to reach 50 projects for 2007. Until that is done, I've put aside any larger projects. Hopefully by that time things here will have settled down a bit and that way I'll be able to direct my concentration to just one or two larger pieces.

To answer Christine's question, the buttons I used on Winter Joy and Winter Love are from Just Another Button Company. Most ONS carry them but might not list them on their website because there are so many. I hope this helps you :o)

Sooooo pretty!

I think I'm weird. A lot of people stitch when they're stressed and I'm the exact opposite. When I am stressed, I cannot stitch at all... I just can't focus on it.

Cindy said...

I love this design too and am going to stitch this, but the fabric you choose is so suit well for this design and just beautiful!
I love the finishing of this on the magazine, but I will try to another way of finishing! :D

Peace turned out lovely, what a pretty finish. Also, glad that Hammy is doing OK, I enjoy your updates on him. What a fun shot of "his" birdhouse, he certainly has gotten it packed for winter.
