Zippity Do Dah!
The sun came out today. I hadn't realized how much I was missing the sun. It made the snow so bright that it hurt your eyes but I welcomed it anyway.
I spent most of the day making Sugarplum the horse. This is from Victoria Sampler - Down Jinglepot Road #2. She was fun to do.
Yesterday I made Holly Farm House from the same chart. Both will be ornaments soon.
Yesterday I put this one together. Sweetheart Tree Door Knocker - Merry Christmas. This will be a gift soon. I was asked how I make these. I generally cut some cardboard or foam core board the size I want. I also cut some very thin shirt cardboard the same size. I cover both with a piece of quilt batting. I cover the stiffer board with the cross stitch piece. I use double sided tape for small items. I use an appropriate fabric for the thinner card board which is added to the back. Place a hanger if necessary and sandwich it all together. I then stitch around the edge, perhaps covering the edge with cording as in this case. Wah Lah!
