Just a quick post (w/ a finish!)


I am still working on ornaments- I am afraid some are going to be late. :( But I did get this one finished- I made it for my friend/zumba instructor Pretz- the winter scene is from For The Love of  Cross Stitch magazine(I think!) and the alphabet is from a Gloria & Pat alphabet leaflet.  My hubby assembled the ornament for me. :)  The fabric is Silkwaver I think- Blue Dynasty? DMC floss and Kreinik #4 braid- it actually called for blending filament but I didn't have any - so instead of using floss and filament I just used the braid. I think it turned out pretty well, and Pretz loved it, which is the important thing. :)
