~ FIRST FINISHES 2010 ~

Hi there and Happy New Year to all! Remember my last post about stitching on linen for the first time? Thx to each of you who commented and encouraged me to blunder ahead:) Well... here are my FIRST linen finishes-YAY! Why oh why did I wait so long....

Had fun experimenting on this one with a new floss too. Adapted from Sue Hillis' *Merriest Christmas*, JCS 2008 ornie issue. 32 ct. Belgian linen, color natural. DMC *linen* floss, drabby green, 2 over 2. I like this effect of linen on linen. Linen floss is more like stitching with very fine jute, nice and slubby.

Adapted from La D Da's *Merry Christmas*, JCS 2009 ornie issue, 32 ct. Belgian linen, color natural. DMC 400, 2 over 2.


Looks like 2010 is gonna be a great stitchy year for me, the newest member of The Linen Club~LOL!

Thx for taking the time to pop in during this hectic time of reorganizing after the Christmas rush. I hope you enjoyed your visit here as much as I enjoyed sharing:)


Sweet Stitchin...

Tootles, Sue
