Monday, Monday

Hello Friends!

Another busy one today in the studio!

The first ornament FFO is this O Come Let Us Adore Him from Country Cottage Needleworks. This pattern has always been one of my favorites for an ornament. I decided to make it a mounted flat ornament and use some really pretty Christmas homespun fabric to mount it on. The cording that edges the piece is twine because I wanted to give it a rustic feel. Then I just added some brown ribbon, a white ribbon bow and a snowflake.

Fabric: 28 ct tea-dyed evenweave
Colors: DMC 3031, 469, 815, 436, 437, White

The second ornament is part of a Country Cottage Needleworks sampler. I chose to just stitch the "Merry Christmas" and again, make it a mounted flat ornament. I had this beautiful fabric that I really thought would make the stitching pop. Then I added some white twist cord, a red ribbon, a white ribbon bow and another snowflake.

I also started making these gift card holder / mini note cards for the shop and they've been selling (mostly via custom order) like craaaaaaazy. I have a few more custom order sets to get done today, and then I hope to get some new patterns in the shop later today.

The envelope itself is 2.5 by 3 inches, perfect to hold a standard-sized gift card. I also include a flat (not folded) note card, approximately the same size with the patterned paper on one side, so that you can add your own note along with the gift card holder. You can also send this note by itself without a gift card and just use it as you would with any note card. 

They're really cute. I look forward to sending my own gift cards out this way.

I also finished up some ornaments stitched by Robin. As always, I loved this set!
