So, have you all started your stitching? I know one fellow challenger has finished a piece already! I haven’t got quite so far as that yet…
I have several WIPs which I’m incorporating into this challenge, so I thought I’d share three of them this month.
The first is the Blue Bauble (freebie design at Kincavel Krosses HERE). As you can see, it’s not far from completion – just the top of the bauble and the beads to be added, then all I have to do is finish it as an ornament for my tree.
I think I’ll back it in blue felt and attach a blue ribbon to hang it. I’m hopeful it will turn out very prettily!
Next is Oh, Christmas Tree! (freebie design at Kincavel Krosses HERE). Again, this one is quite far along and I have only to stitch the star on top and add the beads.
I think I might finish this one as a hanging. It’s too big for a card or tree ornament, but it might look nice hanging on the door…
Finally, there is the Winter Quaker Bookmark (freebie design at Kincavel Krosses HERE). As you can see, I haven’t done very much of this one yet – just one of the five snowflakes.
I’m not sure I’ll use it as a bookmark though – I may turn it into a bell pull style ornament to display over the festive period. We shall see!
Don’t forget to check back the first Saturday of February (4th February) for another update post.
I hope all my fellow challengers will post a comment linking to their own progress so we can
cheer each other on.
