Snow Love

I believe I was the last subscriber to receive the JCS ornament issue. Finally I had to call them when it didn't show up and they re-sent it. That took an extra ten days. But I do like the issue and the Nov/Dec issue has already arrived too so I'm caught up.

I decided to stitch the Sam Sarah snowman 'Love' ornament first. So many pretty colors and such a fun design. I used all DMC so it looks a bit different from the magazine model. I didn't have those L-O-V-E buttons to attach to the gifts so I just used some little buttons from my stash instead. I like the way she used couching for the heart border. Very effective and original. The ribbon hanger is a deep purple. Not sure if the color is showing up well in the photos. I took one inside and one outside and, of course, I'm not really happy with either one.

Sorry it took so long for you to get your ornament issue, what a pain - at least you have it now though.

He's beautiful Annie, love the way you've adapted the button idea. I just received my ornie issue last week(not a subscription though) and there are some great designs I have added to my 'list'! Hope you have a wonderful day.

Brigitte said...

Very beautiful finish.
I rarely have all the threads that a chart calls for, nor do I have the charms and buttons that the model uses. I always take threads and embellishments from what I have and usually I'm very happy with the result.
