Warm Hands, Warm Heart

A happy Easter evening! We spent a quiet holiday. Dash happily colored eggs, I happily munched egg salad sandwiches!

I stopped by a local quilt shop (yesterday) and found this charm pack:

Here are the prints in the package of five inch squares:

Thanks to The Fat Quarter Shop for the image! You can buy the fabrics in the line here.

Aren't those fun prints? When I saw them, I knew they'd be perfect for backing smaller Ornaments like this:

Design ~ Warm Hands, Warm Heart
Designer ~ The Little Stitcher
Fabric ~ 28 count black Jobelan
Fiber ~ DMC

This is such a darling design! I changed the colors to brighter ones since I stitched it on black fabric. You can find this one in the Just CrossStitch Christmas Ornaments 2017 issue.

Why do you only see the giant red fuzzy stuck right in the middle after you took the photos, transferred them to the computer, and your blog post is written? Whhyyyy? 

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

I love your fabric charm pack, such lovely colors.
The ornament is beautiful, not sure where the fuzzy is, cannot see it here.

Nice charm pack and charming finish! ^^

Don't know what the warm red fuzzy is... ????

We had egg salad for lunch also.
What was supposed to be boiled eggs turned into a disaster when I used a hint from the net for making the "perfect" boiled egg.
These wouldn't peel...at all.
I lost a good portion of the whites, so they became egg salad! lol
Guess I'll use my old way of boiling the heck out of them until the yolks are green, I love green yolks.
Cute ornament, those charm packs are great for ornament finishing.

Very nice ornament.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Cute ornie, love it on black.
I only spotted the big red fuzzy because you told us it was there!

Mary said...

Very pretty finish.

Justine said...

Gorgeous finish and the charm pack is perfect for finishing Christmas ornies - what a find!

Jackie said...

This ornament is so striking on the black fabric! Fantastic choice! I love charm packs for backing too.

Julie said...

Cute charm pack, lots of lovelies in that.
Sweet finish, I do admire stitchers who work on black fabric.

Susan said...

Cute charm pack and very cute ornament. If I blow up the picture and use a magnifying glass I can see the fuzzy and only because you said it was there and I had to find it. :-)

I never thought to look at the quilt shop for little pieces like that. What cute fabric!! And the one you chose for your ornament is perfect!

Great charm pack you found. Lovely finish!! (that see-the-fuzzy-AFTER-you-post thing must be related to the find-the-typos-after-you-print thing - am certain they're both somehow related to Murphy's Law)

I love using charm pack pieces in my finishing, too, Sharon--they are often the perfect size. Your little mitten ornament is darling--and the snowflake fabric is wonderful on the back :)

Love the mittens and what perfect fabric for the backing.

I never get tired of seeing Christmas ornaments, so keep them coming!
