Feathered Friends Santa

I finally managed to get this ornie finished today – it’s only taken me pretty much an entire month to stitch this one … I was supposed to work this afternoon, after spending a few hours at a work colleague’s home for pre-Christmas festivities, but I was feeling a bit “over it” and decided to give work a wide berth for the night … I might regret that decision tomorrow, but it’s something I needed I think.

Anyway, here’s the finished product:



Feathered Friends Santa

“Feathered Friends Santa” by HeartStrings/The Artists Collection
Stitched on 28ct Vintage Wichelt linen
with recommended GAST, DMC and Kreinik threads, except for 009HL which I subbed with 009

Last month I also finally put the finishing touches into one of Mum’s stitched ornies – I just had to add the mouths and the French knots, and it’s all done now ready to go back home to Mum once again.

And on that note I’ll call it a night … I might blog more often again soon, as Mum has got her PC up and running again, so my main audience member is back online – and perhaps doing that will keep me off of Facebook more, which is my biggest time waster these days!

  1. Oh what a gorgeous Santa! Love your Mum’s ornament too.

    I know what you mean about Facebook being a time waster, I’m seriously thinking of deleting my account although I have joined some stitching groups on there, but I’d get more stitching done if I wasn’t on there so much. LOL

  2. Lovely stitching. I know what you mean about Facebook – never an unuttered thought and most of it totally irrelevant. I am only on there so I can keep up to date with our friends’ new baby pictures.
