Happy Dance!

Finished two small projects recently.

The first one is my daughter's 2019 Christmas ornament. The design is Peace & Joy by The Drawn Thread, this a kit I bought 10 years ago!!!! In September, I was going thru my stash and found this cute Santa and decided to finally stitch it °Ü°. 

The design is not only done with cross stitch but it has a few specialty stitches like the ones used for Santa's bag. The doves and Santa's face are done in silks and one over one. I usually hate stitching one over one on 32ct fabric but the silks made this task a lot easier. 

I hope to assemble this ornament this weekend... so come back soon to see a picture of it fully finished and hanging on the tree *yay* 

Design: Peace & Joy by The Drawn Thread
Stitch count 47w x 47h
Fabric: 32ct Belfast Linen
Threads: Threadworks - Needlepoint Silks - Whisper Thread
Started: 28. September. 2019
Finished: 24. November. 2019 

Another project I finished is Daisy Dog, that features a very pink and fun little dog. This design came on a digital magazine (no longer available) called The Gift of Stitching.

Early this year I remembered I had the complete collection of these magazines so I went thru all of them and made a list of the designs I wanted to stitch from them. Daisy Dog was designed by Stitchy Kitty and I love how bright and colorful it is. 

The design called for fancy floss (Weeks Dye Works, GAST and Crescent Colour) but I stitched mine with regular DMC and for the main fur of the dog I used ThreadworX (color 1100) and I also the suggested DMC 150 for 601

Design: Daisy Dog by Stitchy Kitty
