Hello, Stitchy Friends! Christmas is now over and the end of the year is getting closer. Around here it is time for quietness, reflection, and planning (and a little bit of Boxing Day shopping…). Tomorrow I will be sharing my stitching plans for 2017, including what I want to accomplish during the 2017 Smalls SAL, but today I wanted to share the stitching gifts I gave this Christmas.
First up is Sue Hillis’ Yo Ho Ho, a super fun pirate Santa that I stitched up for my mom. She loves Santa designs so much, and I thought this design was too cute to pass up. It is stitched using DMC thread on a SilkWeaver solo that I got years ago. The map charm was included with the chart.
Second is Voyage at Sea, a small Gold Collection design from Dimensions. I stitched it for my dad, who loves ships and light houses and all of those sorts of things. I used the thread and fabric included in the kit. The braid around the edge is couched on and gives the design a really great 3d look.
The last little thing I made was this adorable tape measure cover for an exchange. The pattern is All Your Pie Tape Measure by Tabitha Rose. I used Bernat Satin in colours Sable and Teal.
Did you give away any stitchy gifts this year? If you did, I’d love to hear about them! Leave me a comment.
