Another Ornie

"Winter Song"
Primrose Needleworks
32 ct linen/DMC & CC flosses
I just love perusing the raw wood section of Hobby Lobby and this frame is one of my favorites.  It is great for finishing a square design that is 4" or smaller.  I painted this one red and then sanded it to distress it a bit.  Then I slapped on a coat of Briwax to tone done the bright red.  This finished up a bit large for my tree but it will look nice hanging on a door or wall.

Back to the sewing machine!

Well I have just gotten back in to browsing blogs and I swear every one that I've looked at so far is showing off some gorgeous finishing! I really need to get my ducks in a row.

Love the little cardinal. They are my favorite.

Gorgeous! How great is that with the Briwax! Very good job!

I also enjoy scoping out the raw wood forms sections, though I never get beyond doing so--just one of the reasons I treasure your Halloween gift from 2010! :D
