More Ornament Finishes – Four This Time

  • Posted on December 9, 2005 at 11:57 am

I took a snow day today. Unfortunately, I didn’t actually get to watch any of the storm because I went to the doctor yesterday about the headaches and got some new medications to try. The one I’m starting to take at night knocked me out for 12 hours straight. I have no memory of anything last night except getting up a couple of times to go to the bathroom. I didn’t wake up until 11 AM! And I woke up with a headache, so I’m not very happy with the results so far! ๐Ÿ˜†

Anyway, I finished up some ornaments today that I’ve been working on throughout the week. The first two are flat finishes. The first is the ornament from the Victoria Sampler Christmas Hearts limited edition kit. The second is from the 2004 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue and was designed by Patricia Ann Designs.

The other two are pillow finishes. The first is from the 2002 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue and was designed by Elizabeth’s Designs. The second is from the 2004 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue and was designed by Shepherd’s Bush.

I have eight ornaments left in my WTF. One is waiting on bellpull hardware that might be here tomorrow or Monday. Four are flat finishes, with all but one being a bit of a challenge in shape. One is curing overnight under the stack of books as I write this. The other ones I have to figure out the right shape and then cut the mat board. The last three are to be hand-sewn in one form or another, so shouldn’t be too tough. I can just work on them while I’m watching TV.

I haven’t been able to stitch all week, so I’ve been taking it easy. I might start a little project that will be part of my SBEBB Valentine’s Exchange gift. If I feel well enough, I will need to get working on my model. I’m only going to take half of the new nightly medication tonight, so hopefully I’ll feel a bit better this weekend!

    How are you feeling this weekend? Are you feeling better? ๐Ÿ˜• Thinking of you!

    (I’ve been having a migraine since Friday… that’s why I’ve been away from the computer. Yesterday was terrible. I was feeling better this morning, but now it is starting again! ๐Ÿ™ It’s 10.30 am here.)
