A finish

Hi everyone

Well this past week was not productive at all! Working back every night did not help the stitching one bit. I did manage to finish the ornament I needed for an exchange though and have just now done the "finishing"on it too! Decided to go with a pin keep finish as it's a big big for a tree ornament, least I think so anyway.

Here's a pic:

Helga Mandl - Just Add Snow

Fabric: 28ct opalescent "butterscotch glitz"lugana from silkweavers

Stitched as charted with DMC.

Stitching completed October 29, 2009

The fabric in the background is what I've backed it with. Will send it with a little stand so the recipient will have a way to display it.

Last week Alison asked for the name of my new gingher scissors, sorry I forgot to add that in the original post. The mutli-coloured ones are the new Elena design and the green ones are called Sarah.

Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween for those who celebrate it. We don't but I love to stitch Halloween designs, go figure! Didn't get any done though which is a bit annoying, so I am now going to focus on my current wip of Shepherds Bush - Spooky Spots.

Happy Stitching all

hugs

Amanda
