For Jessie

I have been meaning to post all week but stuff got in the way. It's been one of "those" weeks for me. I either did things perfectly or made royal screw-ups over and over. The topper was waking up today at the time I usually LEAVE for work. ACK! I took the fastest shower ever, threw on my clothes and zoomed in the door at work only a couple of minutes past when I usually arrive. WHEW!

More ornamentifying: I took this little beauty...


...and created this little beauty:

Design ~ Fill With Love
Designer ~ Designs by Cathy Jean (of Victoria Sampler)
Fabric ~ 32 count tea-dyed Jobelan
Fiber ~ DMC
This one was for my daughter, Jessica, to hang on her tree. She said it looks strange and out-of-place because all the other ornaments are baubles so I need to stitch her some more soon. Probably won't get to it this year but I will be creating her some more. You know I wouldn't be able to resist.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

I love that ornament! I just purchased that pattern a few weeks ago & am looking forward to making it! It will be jostling in line with the other gazillion or so ornaments & smalls I am planning to stitch this coming year : ) Blessings, Shirlee

I am always blown away by your finishes. It is too cute. Could you tell what kind of tea you use for tea dying fabric? I tried the tea dying tutorial and it did not work for me. I would like to give it another go before I give up on it for good. Thanks. Have a great weekend!
