Saturday night Designer spotlight~

Hello stitching friends.....

First off, I'd like to say a huge thank you to all of those who emailed and commented about the scissor mannequins!! Wow~ I was thrilled to hear the compliments and words of encouragement~ And, for those of you who placed your orders, I will be mailing out midJanuary to you.. Just in time for an after holiday pick me up!! lriggsbee@nc.rr.com if any others are interested...

Next, I would like to show you an ornament I stitched... A tiny version (25 ct country mocha Lugana) of "Merry Christmas to Thee" by the talented designer, Gayle Rose of Abby Rose Designs.... Gayle's designs are usually beautifully framed, but she went with a pillow using 30 ct linen, Weeks & Gentle Arts Sampler Threads ( including a DMC conversion) on this design.... An easy mid-size project, 85 x 83, that could be a nice weekend stitch~

I love adding cotton lace and antique buttons to my ornaments~I will definitely looking for more Abby Rose Designs to be released!!

Faye, your finishes are all beautiful. Lovely work! I noticed that your shading is so well blended - do you do anything special with your floss when you thread your needle?
