Ho! Ho! Ho!

In a row, that is!  :o)


I was a bit weary of working on patriotic stitches so I decided to celebrate a little Christmas in July with this cute Lizzie Kate design.  It is stitched on 36 count Pearl Gray linen with DMC floss.  I trimmed the design with pom poms and then stitched it up into a pillow.  I just love the paisley fabric I found at Hobby Lobby.  The colors went perfectly with this design.

This little guy says "stay cool, ya'll!"

Just darling Myra!!!! And the fabric was made for it... I thought when I ho ho ho, you might have been in garden a little too long..... You probably don't have weeds in your garden though.... :)

Your stitching and finishing is always perfectly done. I never thought I'd hear myself say I am happy to see a snowman but it's just so humid out today! I can take the heat...but the humidity whips me.

Yes that paisley is perfect!

What a cute finish Myra! I am actually stitching this right now as a break from my big pieces but I am using some muted colors. I want to restitch it with the brighter colors too. It's so festive! And I just love that red christmas paisley fabric. Paisley is my favorite!

Carol said...

Wow--that is a perfect example of taking a simple design and making to pop with your beautiful finishing, Myra!! You couldn't have found two better fabrics and your little ribbon trio is the perfect accent :) Great job, my friend!

Hope it's not raining down there still--we got some major storms here again today :(
