I have finished stitching Little House Needleworks Fa La La as part of the 2010 Ornament a Month SAL. I stitched it on 30 count R&r Cappucino. It was the first time I stitched on30 count.
It turned out larger than I expected, but I am still going to finish it as an ornament. I am going to use wool for the backing fabric (if I can find any). I think it will be prettier using wool than a print fabric. I have the Dmc White Perle Cotton to make the twisted cord.
This was actually a simple stitch but I had trouble and had to frog the left tree not once but twice because I was a half stitch off. I think the Fa La La was what threw me off.
I have also been wanting Chilly's Gift Freebie by Stitchy Kitty. I think he is just adorable and I wanted to stitch with those funky colors. lol. I have him all most finished and hopefully today I will be done. I really like the 28 count Luguana and I am pretty sure I will be using it again this year.
I will post pictures as soon as I get these two finished. I am going to stitch a scissor pocket for an exchange and am still searching for a pattern. Not having much luck. The ones I find and really like have a lot of speciality stitches. Scary to me. lol.
May the Stitch be with you.
