A new addition to ~~~~~

my ~~flock of birds~~

I stitched this little freebie design and made it into a drawer/door hanger.

I like the monochrome look of the ecru thread on the darker linen.

This is just a little 'aside stitch' that I have finished whilst I am dithering over some colour changes I am planning to make on the baby sampler I am stitching for our new grandchild who we are going to be welcoming to our family next month. I hope I will get some inspirations for my colour soon, as sometimes I find these things just come to you and other times, it just takes time. I have also started another little quick stitch that I can hopefully show you soon.

I love wrapping gifts and try and bring a little creativity to my wrapping and tomorrow being my DD's birthday, I have really enjoyed making her a card and wrapping her gift trying to follow a theme. I hope she likes it.

  1. My, that was a quick stitch Chrissie, it's really pretty in that colour on the dark linen. It reminds me a bit of my Clox needleroll, although I think I used a lighter thread.

  2. Great finish, Chrissie! Best of luck with your colour choices on the baby sampler you're going to do. I know how hard it is to deviate from the original design.

  3. Hi Chrissie!! Thank you so very much for buying my tutorial!!! You can certainly make substitutions on this project. Use plain white glue with a tiny bit of water added maybe instead of the matte gel medium. Or you could even use a good glue stick!! Plus remember, use items you have on hand, wrapping paper, old book pages, images from old greeting cards, etc. Enjoy creating!!! I do love this stitchery for your new grandchild, such a beautiful tone on tone look!!! Hope all is well on your side of the globe sweet friend ~ xxoo, Dawn

  4. Lovely work!

    A very pretty shadow you have :)
