As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

bah humbug!

Well not quite Bah Humbug but I did finish a gorgeous humbug design last night for the ornament exchange on Bubble. The design is one I've wanted to stitch since I saw it at the beginning of the year. It's my first attemp at a humbug, but like the biscornu, very addictive. The design is one of 7 different humbug designs (including Bah!) on the Kincavel Krosses site and is called Holly Jolly.

So here it is before I sewed it up. It was stitched on 14ct gold/cream lurex aida with DMC threads 700 (green) and 666 (red) and finished off with pearl seed beads and Mill Hill antique glass beads 03048 (lustred red).

So here come the pictures from all sides.

I'm completly in love with this design and I hope my exchange partner does too. Just to add to the mountain of christmas stitching I already have to do, I would love to stitch a few of these for my tree too.

Well thats all folks for today, bit of backstitch and a biscornu awaits me tonight. Hope you're having a good day. x
