Final Post of 2020

Well, we made it to the end of 2020. Thank goodness. While I wish COVID would magically go away, I know that we still have a long road ahead of us. Thank goodness we have each other.

Before the ball drops, I want to share some final finishes with you.

This is called Winter Delivery and it’s from Blackbird Designs. I stitched it once before, when it first came out. It’s framed and hanging in one of the bedrooms. I need to add beads and will then finish this as a small pin pillow.

Then I stitched up this cute ornament from The Wooly Ewe. So cute that I am stitching a second one. I need to add cording to finish these off.

Finally, I’ve been working on this Hardanger project. These are pieces that will be used to adorn a whit blouse that is part of a Norwegian folk costume called a bunad. There are four pieces in total. The one on the left is the front placket that will cover the buttons of the blouse. The piece on the right is one of the cuffs. I have another cuff and the collar that are about half finished. All four pieces will be finished with a knotted edging stitch.

Hope you are healthy and safe and that you had a lovely Christmas and New Year’s Eve. I hope to post a little more often in 2021.
