I was busy a while back, stitching up a few little New Year's items for my New Year's tree--which didn't materialize!! These are the first New Year's ornaments I've made, so I had nothing to go on it! However, I googled New Year's cross stitch and came up with several freebies! I will try to have a few more before next year! Also, after Christmas I hit the 90 % off sale at WalMart and found some gold and silver snowflakes and stars, so that should fill in pretty well. I even found some gold party horns and plan to use those, too!
My photography isn't too great--I used my phone, but you can get the general idea!
This was a sweet freebie from that I stitched in Crescent Colors Apple Fritter. It was found here, and I used metallic fabric, rick rack, and ribbon. I even added a cute little clock charm that is almost ready to chime midnight!!
This next piece is from Trail Creek Farm Millennium 3 and I used gold and silver threads. It's stitched on 22 ct. Hardanger...I couldn't see it too well...might not do that again! HA But I used some metallic trim, snowflake material, and snowflake buttons to attach the hanger.
This one is very similar, because it's also Trail Creek Farm, from their Millennium 2 chart. I also stitched it in gold and silver, but accented the gold on this one! The fabric has gold metallic dots and I used gold lace for a hanger. This is also on 22 ct. Hardanger--I was using up a piece, and it's gone now! No more squinting at that!
I topped it with metallic brown ribbon and found a large "gemstone" to put where the ribbons crossed. All-in-all, it turned out ok, but was really a pain to assemble because of the sliding cloth! Oh well, you live and learn!
These were fun to stitch and assemble, (mostly!!) and I now have a few cute things for New Year's! I will hope to add more throughout the year!
Thanks for stopping by! Please come by again soon!
