I’ve done a little stitching since last week, but not as much as I would like. I am continuing with the Prairie Schooler “Evergreen” chart and stitching the motifs as separate ornaments. I’ve made a start on the second ornament, which is a dove of peace. Progress pics below!
I’m stitching all of the ornaments on an 18 count Aida in a rustic oatmeal color. Unfortunately, once again, I am wishing I had chosen a darker fabric because the white thread does not show up very well against the oatmeal background. But, I am sticking with it because I’ve already cut all of the fabric pieces for the ornaments.
The subtle effect of the white against the off-white background does look kind of nice, too. I think it will work out in the end. The photo below shows where I am currently at with this piece.
This ornament has more details that the Santa ornament did, so there is more changing thread colors for all of these little bits, but I expect I will finish it pretty quickly. By next week, I’d like to have this one done and be on to number three!
