See you in 2007
I stitched this 1/1 with Needlepaints 1004 which is beautiful thread to stitch with...it is the JBW Christmas Motif Sampler and it was really nice to stitch. I made up the shape of the ornie myself and had decided to have a go at making a tassel finish in the style I had seen on Nataliejo's blog. I had never made a tassel before so had no instructions but I was delighted with how it turned out for my first attempt. You would have laughed if you had seen me with all the strands of thread spread out on my leg before I got them fastened together ;-) The back of the ornie has a co-ordinating fabric and a pearl bead at the back of the cream band.
Now and again I think you do something you are very proud of and this is one of my such things, having only made one ornie before (the MC 2004 one below). The whole thing did take me a while as I have been suffering from a trapped nerve in my upper spine that really affected my left arm and has been so painful and keeping me awake for over 3 weeks on a night when I've tried to sleep. I have had four sessions with an oesteopath and now eventually I am feeling some relief and am stitching again which is great :-))
I have since made one more ornie which I will show in my next posting and I have started to stitch With my Needle 'Emblem of Love'...Carol and Karen were the enablers for that one as I have loved seeing it on their blogs. I am doing it as SAL with my Mum, so no pressure ;-) I hope I do persevere with it as it is a big project for me although probabaly not to some peoples standards!! We will see if I get it done along with all my other great plans...lol. One of the things on my agenda for early this coming year is my MC Shaker Spool Holder as I really want to get that done!!
Sharon, yes, I will share how I did the wall hanging finish when I have a bit more time...maybe next week as I did photograph how I did it :)
So for now I would like to wish you all a really Very Happy New Year with all good wishes for 2007 :-))) Take care and thank-you once again for all of your lovely visits and especially to those of you who can and do comment, I love 'meeting' you all.
See you soon!!
