Ho Ho Ho in a row - Lizzie Kate



Hello Peeps!


Christmas is fast approaching and I have
a small festive finish to show you


 oOoOo


Ho Ho Ho in a row




My model was stitched on 14 ct aida fabric from Sew It All

The colour is blue cloud (effect) with added sparkle
Unfortunately neither cloud effect & extra glitter seem to show on any of my pictures :(






Stitched 2 over 1 using DMC threads
Added the provided small red buttons for the wreath




Finished off as a cube using fabric & ribbon from my stash.
- Again this was a first attempt, so many thanks to Vonna for her tutorials -




Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!
Toodles,
Mii

  4. Looks absolutely amazing. Well done on the cube finish. Can I ask where you got the inner cube from, maybe they have a website? I'm having a really hard time finding somewhere that has them.

    1. Hubby actually made a cardboard box for me for this one :)
      I have since bought some foam and will cut it to size. It was from Hobby Craft here in UK.
