I did not stitch either of these. You may remember that I visited a real Cross Stitch Shop in Memphis recently, and while on my spending spree I purchased a few little shop models that were marked to practically NOTHING!!! You can read about it here!!
One was this lovely Autumn piece. It is a Bent Creek OOP chart. It wasn't finished in any way. Just a piece of fabric with stitching. So, I made it into what else--an ornament! It's about as large as one can go with ornaments, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out! I will enjoy this in months to come! It is backed with a simple brown fabric with yellowish leaves on it! I went a little "wild" by putting some leopard charms to hold the ribbon! I bought them on the "junk table" at Hobby Lobby and this seemed to be a fun place to use them! HAHA!
This next one was actually in a cute little "tuck" pillow. It was blue and had bees on it. I loved the little pillow and I loved this stitching. I didn't think they went together as well as they might have. Plus, my Valentine tree is really pink and red, and the blue pillow would really stand out! So, I just took the stitching out and made a standard rectangle ornament. I used sparkly pink buttons to attach the wide ribbon hanger. (Another "blingy" way to attach ribbon!) I had a small scrap of glitter ribbon that was just enough to put on each side of the stitching! These fabrics are from the wonderful stack that my dear friend Janie brought me from a quilt retreat--read about it here!!
Well, that gets all of my things finished! I can now stitch with wild abandon! LOL Actually, I hope that I will get back to the real store in Memphis on Friday, so I will have more goodies to show!!
Thank you for visiting and please come by again!
