Here is Kelly Clark's angel ornament finished. This is the one I (and my grandson) were working on at the stitching day at my DD's home. I used metallic threads (gold DMC and silver Snow) in an open style stitch for the wings and white Snow for the open weave stitch of the background. Then red Snow for the outer border. I know--it was a Snow-kind of project. :) Plus I used many colors of Vineyard Silk. This was the last of this year's ornaments that I needed to finish. I couldn't share all of them here though. :) So I moved on to stitching --
I started with the house and moved horizontally to the border, then finished the border. I was afraid that I might have made the same mistake that I did on another project earlier this year. Do you remember that I cut the fabric too small for Goode Huswife's With My Needle? I had to leave off the bottom border. But it looks like that won't be a problem on this one. Whew! AND the border matched up perfectly :) Does anybody recognize this project ???
To be honest, I was looking for a project that I thought could be completed before the end of 2010. Snowflake Girl is still in my floorstand and I still don't have the prework done on her. And my Prairie Schooler ABC will be next year before that is done.
