Christmas Ornament stitched

Hi again!

i was trying to enable someone to sign up to the mystery sampler group by showing them the pretty ornament , so i stitched it lol..

it is stitched 1x2 on white 50 ct linen using HDF silk in a deep varigated red named oxblood with some gold kreinik in the middle

i am not sure what i will do with it now if there are other ornaments released i might just make a secondary small sampler , otherwise i suspect this will become a mini biscornu

Whatsup week 1

Oh look, at the top of the page we can see a little bit more of the mystery unveiled! It looks so wonderful, I can't wait.

I know I won't be able to keep up with a page a week, especially when November and December get here. Plus I will be traveling a week in October, so there I get another week behind. But for now, I am caught up.

I am stitching my sampler on 25 count white jobelan using Vikki Clayton Limited Edition color 2465/2155/2319 (jadeite, velvet midnight and mermaid blue). My intention is to incorporate some of the solid color components into the sampler at some point.

Fudgey's Spot sampler Page 1

Hi Everbody..

i am approaching this with caution i used to have a blogger blog and left cos i could never post pics successfully

i finished the first page over the weekend , i put a pic in the yahoo group, but i have added it here too to see if i can post a picture successfully ( you are all the guinea pigs!!)

i also just started the ornament martina posted today, but no picure yet as it took me more than an hour to choose which silk to use! i am stitch in it 1x2 on 50 ct white legacy linen using HDF silk in oxblood

my Spot Sampler is being stitched 1x1 on cream 35 ct linen from HDF using the HDF Sue Purple series as well as some LE varigates from the range

I can't wait to stitch the next page, though i am not sure i will be able to keep it at a page a week , maybe a page a fortnight!


A huge welcome to everyone. Martina and I thought this would be a perfect idea for the mystery stitcher's to show off their progress pictures and make comments etc.
