Quaker Holly finish

Hello my fine sweet ladies.  I hope everything is just great in your corner of this world.  I really have been stitching up a storm and finished the Quaker Holly Pinwheel by Threadwork Primitives.  One difference....well maybe 2....I added a row of the pink/red around the outside to make it appear more holidayish.  The second one is the I finished it into an ornament instead of a pinwheel.

As you can see I added it to my bowl of goodies on my angel shelf in my dining room.  I'm getting ready to start another Threadwork Primitives called Painted Threads Sampler.  I went today and picked up the threads I needed and I sent for the linen (36ct Aged Saffron) from Dames of the Needle to get the exact color needed.  Just love those colors!!!!!  It's going to take me awhile on this one because of the 36ct linen but I do believe it will be worth it.  Wish me luck!

I hope your week has been great so far and that your weekend has no snow and lots of stitchie time.

Blessings, Barbara

Barbara, I love your Quaker Holly finish. Like the changes as well! I look forward to seeing your new start appear on your linen. I have seen several around the internet being stitched on.
