Eure & Happy are back home and the house is quieter. At least for a couple days. On Thursday, a friend is going away for Christmas and her shih tzu, Precious, will be visiting for a couple weeks. She's a doll.
I accomplished quite a bit over the weekend. I worked on some holiday ornaments from my stack of finishing-to-dos. Now all I need to do is add the trim around the rims of them. I'm leaning toward cording.
I finally finished stitching this reindeer. It will also become an ornament in the near future. Hmmmmmm ... I'm thinking ...... stuffed .....
I officially began the Christmas Design SAL by putting the canvas on stretcher bars. I haven't actually picked out threads yet but will do that soon. Oh my! Everytime I look at this, I have no idea where to start.
I wasn't entirely happy with my tea staining from last week. Soooo, I cut a small piece off and re-stained it a second time. Same conditions, 200 degrees F for a hour. This time I used 2 bags of Cinnamon Stick tea (out of Earl Grey) and crumpled the fabric.
Isn't it gorgeous! I love it.
Now to pick out my threads and I'm ready to begin See the Star.
