I'll let you in on a secret, I love making Christmas ornaments, and this year I decided to lay down Fractal for November and December and just make fun Christmas stuff. I fell like I've put aside Fractal a lot compared to most of my big pieces I'm not sure why, but I doubt it will continue. I will finish it next year I am sure.
The first ornaments I made were from a pattern I made last year. I had wanted to make a Dala Horse for my father whose parents were from Sweden, and we have several of the little wooden horses around the house. I had looked for patterns and found nothing that was right so made one myself and Dad loved it. So this year I decided to make one for each of my siblings. Here is where I oops a bit, I gave my brother his just after I finished and therefore the only picture I have of them is this little stampede of all three. The one with blue was last years one for Dad.
My friend Pinky has a monthly feature on her Deviant Art page and this month she was asking for cottages, I missed finishing this little thing by a day but it's still cute and my favourite use of variegated fabrics that I've done, this will probably be finished up and used for the Stitching Pirates Ornament Exchange, unless I whip up something else in the next 4 days. The pattern is from the Just Cross Stitch 2008 Christmas Ornament issue, which is perhaps my most used magazine to date, and the ornament is 3x3" and used 7 colours.
This is also a WIPopacalyse blog and this months question is
What finishing style have you never tried but would love to do?
I have tried a lot of things, making pillows is my favourite. I have never done a full quilting type finish which would be fun to try, but I don't know if I'll ever get around to that.
As for what I watched
