Frosty Friends - Dimension

 
 
Hello peeps,
 
 
Justine has informed me her Christmas package has been safely delivered,
so I can now share with you a sweet little finish I made for her.
 
My little surprise box included various Christmas goodies and
also a handmade cross stitch finish.
 
 
Design chosen from
Frosty Friends
 

 
 
This is a super cute kit of 6 Christmas ornaments based
on Stacey Yacula's beautiful artwork
 
After great difficulty in making my mind up,
I opted to get stitching on Snowy Days!
Source: Stacey Yacula Etsy shop
 
Stitched on the provided 16ct light blue Aida fabric & threads
Worked 2 over 1
 
It took me AGES to finish it!!!
These are small designs but are so detailled
 
I made a small change and decided to stitch the background snowflakes using
sparkly Kreinik thread instead of the charted plain white
 
 

 
Finished off as a flat ornament using
beaded trim & a green bell from my stash
 

 
 
 
I will definitely have to stitch the other five designs,
they are hard work but look fantastic.
 



Justine was really happy with her gifts and her
little ornament has already found its place in her home!
 
I'm happy!!
 
 
 
-EDIT-
 
Congratulations to the winner of the chart
He's a Flake chart
 
 
Please email me your snail mail so that I can get it posted before Christmas
& a big thank you to the few who took part in the draw!
 
 
 
 Toodles,
Mii

    1. Yes I totally agree Brigitte, those small ornaments are bursting with details and are certainly not quick stitch... but it is all worth it at the end when we have created a truly gem :)

      It was fun to work on but next time I most definitely won't be using the provided fabric, it wasn't the best quality...

  24. Aww...so cute !!:) Justine is lucky to get this lovely gift! The entire chart set has cute designs.
    I know some small pieces have too many details and not to forget the different color shades needed even if there are few stitches. But the effort pays at the end :)

    1. Thank you!
      For this one I slip stitched the front & back together, using the biscornu method and then sew the trim all around it.
      Look out on the web, there are some great free tutorial to help you with your finishes.
