***Please remember if you copy my finishing ideas that you be considerate and give a link to my blog or facebook page..****
This is Merry Holly Berries from With Thy needle and thread .. I used Classic Colorworks floss on a 28 count Rit dyed Monaco that was also coffee tea dyed .. the floss colors I used were Sticks and Twigs, Cherry Cobbler, Avocado, Bamboo, and English Ivy
I finished it in a round .. added a thick ruffle around the ornament of torn homespun plaid .. a plaid bow and a gingham bow on top with a rusty bell finish it off ..It is adorable!
Next is Lizzie Kate Tiny Tidings XVll I used Classic Colorworks Black Coffee ..Licorice Red and Toasted Marshmallow.. it was stitched on 28 count tea/ coffee dyed Monaco
and last from Heart In Hand Needleart All is Calm .. I decided to stitch it for my chalkboard tree so I stitched it on black 28 count evenweave .. I used Gentle arts Chalk .. and Classic colorworks in Holly Jolly , Steamed Broccoli , cocoa bean and Licorice Red .. I changed up a lot of the design and I love it .. It only took me a couple hours to stitch .
To finish it I mounted it on sticky board with batting underneath ( I did that on all of these ornaments) I used torn red gingham to make a tight ruffle around the ornament and added a buffalo check bow .. a covered button and some berry sprigs in white
I really am enjoying Jolly July .. and i hope you are stitching along with us! I'm seeing lots of the #fqsjollyjuly hashtags on Instagram and Facebook!
