A Bit of Stitching

There has been a bit of stitching since my last post.  I stitched a gift, but you won't be seeing that for a long while.  And I still have one more gift to stitch, so I'm not sure what I'll be showing you while I'm working on that one.

My plan is to continue stitching ornaments throughout the year; we'll see how that goes.  For now, though, I have almost completed Frosty in the Firs by Blue Ribbon Designs.  It's from the 2011 JCS Christmas Ornaments issue.  Although the snowman shows up well in the photograph, in real life, it doesn't, so I've been trying to find a floss color to outline him.  I tried a white, but it didn't work, so I have pulled a light grey, but haven't had an opportunity to try it yet.  I'll keep you posted!

Ginny - waht about using a light blue to outline your snowman? Maybe just one side - like a shadow? Just a thought.
