So unfortunately I've gone backwards. Here is where I was last week...
And here is today as I am still trying to remove all of the birds to start over...
Does anyone have any advice for getting all of the thread fibers out of an area where you have undone your stitching? That is a really annoying part of undoing my work. Oh well hopefully by next week I will have taken out all of the old wrong stitching and will have at least 2 birds done as a goal.
But onto some GOOD NEWS! As I took a break from Birds I was able to finish up my Gingerbread Ornament that I started I think back in March or April? This is my 4th Finish of the year!!
Here she is!
This design is called "Freshly Baked" and it is designed by Sue Hollis Designs. I found it in the 2012 Christmas Ornament edition of Just Cross Stitch Magazine. I substituted the suggested fabric for some beautiful hand-dyed 16 count Melon fabric from Stitchn Momma and used as close threads as I could manage from my stash. I made a few small changes like outlining the rosy cheeks and using 2 threads not one on the writing but I really love this design and may make more for Christmas gifts this year! I am also excited that this fulfills one of my stitching goals this year towards stitching ornaments.
Last night I also finally signed up for my two World of Charity Stitching quilt squares towards my yearly goals. I'll share more about those as I get started though.
