~ NOEL ~

Hi there! This small French prim piece worked up nice, I especially enjoyed working with the variegated silk. Discovered chart had a missed stitch, fixed and finished it easily last night. Chart called for a charm between the two flowers, but a snowflake worked well too. Will back it (wool or fiddlers), and fill with poly pellets or crushed walnuts (or maybe polyfil for a wee pillow), then find a place for it ~ Oui Oui:)
Materials: Fiddlers cloth 18 ct., Silk floss is Waterlilies by Caron-color Umbria, stitch count 75 x 63.

Thanks for looking, wishing you a sweet summery day.

Tootles, Sue

  1. I cannot believe how quickly you stitched that up. I have my new glasses, pair #1 anyway, so now I can take better advantage of all the wonderful freebies you find and the encouragement to get stitchin'!!!

  3. Wonderful stitching.
    I hope one day I can get the opportunity to try some silk threads.
    I still love that little strawberry. I have some wool roving so I might just have to try and needle felt me one up.
