I haven't finished any new projects this week, so I thought I would show you a couple of older ones. This design was a freebie from a long time ago, I can't even remember where it came from. But I remember that I used a combination of DMC thread and Coats & Clark's Pastelles, a really nice collection of variegateds that I'm not sure are available anymore. I'm not always good at choosing my own colors, but I did like how this one turned out.
This wreath decorates my sewing room door. It's been up there a while so I hope you can't see the dust on it! Hanging in the middle is a little bunny ornament that I made from a chart in one of my favorite books, Berlin Work Samplers & Embroidery of the Nineteenth Century by Raffaella Serena. I have all three of her books because I just love Berlinwork and I keep hoping she publish another one. If you want to check out some of her fabulous work go to her website here: raffaellaserena.com
It's such a dreary day outside. See the freezing rain on the window? We are supposed to go to a Christmas party tonight, but I have a feeling we might be stuck in the house instead. Maybe I will spend the rest of the day making cookies and working on my stitching! I'm going to leave you now with a kitty picture. I couldn't believe how nicely Trixie was posing on the back of the couch. She even waited long enough for me to go and find the camera!
