February Ornament

This is just a quick drive by posting... I really should be going to bed!  My stitching group was cancelled tonight because there was no heat in the church and well its too cold to do without!  My hair wasn't completely dry when I left the gym and in the short walk to the car my wet hair was frozen!  Not as cold as it has been, but cold enough.  Now I did take advantage of the evening and when I got home I stitched my little heart out!

I was lucky enough to get the last backstitches and beads into my ornament and happy danced tonight!

Byzantine Ornament #3
cTeresa Wentzler
Stitched on 32ct Antique White Lugana
Stitched with DMC, Kreink Cord and Mill Hill Beads

I then put quite a bit of work into The Accolade, I actually did 3 10x10 blocks tonight, making up for those last days where I ignored everything except Art Deco Spirits.  After that I pulled out Enchantment of Winter and quite enjoyed putting some stitches into that tonight!

Beautiful work. Glad you weren't tempted to go out and have your head turn into a popsicle!

I used to worry about frozen hair, that it would break off! It never did though. I'm glad you got so much stitching done, even if you probably missed the companionship you would have had. Your ornament is beautiful!

For the past two years I have been stitching from stash [I only bought four charts in 2010] but you are something of an enabler ... I just may have to find and buy those Byzantine ornament charts ... I have loved all that you have shown so far. Lord knows, I have more than enough Christmas ornaments but those are beautiful!

Beautiful color combo. What is the stitching on the squares? Is it couching? Looks like a lot of work and you did it beautifully!
