Ornie Time

And so now it's back to the Christmas ornaments for our tree this year.  I'm very disappointed in a Vikki Clayton HDF silk.  I used her red on the large ornament and it bled into the fabric.  I have never had that happen with any other fiber but just my luck, it did it with this one.  These two are both from the same pattern:  Winter, Postcards from the Heart.  I love this design - she just happens to be located in my hometown of Mechanicsburg, Pa. and her designs are quite nice.

Below is the pattern and you can find it in my store if you're interested.  The name of her design company is Summer House Stitche Works.

 I'm starting the Blessings Abound sampler to place on the hornbook today and the colors are wonderful.  I've decided to stitch it with the Belle Soie silks so it's extra special.  Also have ordered some scrumptious Madelinetosh yarns in worsted, dk, and sport weight for knitted items I want to make - as if I don't have enough yarn - but who's counting.
It looks like we are going to be missed by the hurricane but I'm worried about friends up the coast.  I hope everyone is safe and sound inside their homes if it hits your area and that nothing bad happens to those caught in it.
Blessed Be, Barbara

I really like your finishes, Barbara! Sorry that the HDF in red bled though. The snowflake looks good on the polka dot fabric. Looking forward to seeing your Blessings Abound. Glad you won't be affected by Hurricane Joaquin. Enjoy your weekend!

Gorgeous ornie finishes Barbara. Shame about the silk incident, that would have been very annoying.
