Hot Off The Needle Finish!

Hooray for quick finishes. This one is hot off the needle just moment ago. I really do like the way this one turned out. Makes me want to make hot cocoa by the barrel full, haha! :)

Well, at any rate, here's the fast finish pour moi:

Design: Hot Cocoa

                        Designer:  Diane Williams of Little House Needleworks

Fabric: Belfast Linen in 32count Country Mocha Belfast linen by Zwiegart

                 Fibers Used:  Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Harvest, Icing,                                              Malted Milk, Tree Trunk and Tulip. Access                                                  Commodities  Soie d'Alger in #3436, Dark Green. 

                                Bling Used: Mill Hill beads in Rich Red

Stitcher's Notes: This is ornament number seven (7) from the 2012 Ornament of the Month series. Left off the red and white border at the top and the bottom as I wanted to have the piece more 'Winter' than 'Christmas' themed.

Well, I best be off. Need to clean up my stitching area and figure out dinner plans. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! :)


Respectfully submitted,

So cute and I could use some of that now. Great big white flakes are falling outside my window! I don't like to see that in November.

Happy Thanksgiving to you!
