Almost Done

The needlepoint ornament is nearing completion ~ so slow stitching (geesh). The fancy blue thread and red beads are last to be sewn. Today I'll decide which sparkly blue fiber to use for the light colored dots against the dark blue. I'm leaning toward the one on the right (on a spool).  Red glass beads will be the holly berries. 

Next I'll try my hand at finishing the ornament ~ adding cording, fabric backing, etc. Several you tube videos have been quite helpful.  Stay tuned on outcome (fingers crossed). 

Looking forward to a spring quilt retreat next weekend. Speaking of Spring, despite have a bit of ice, sleet and snow this past week, the crocuses have emerged.  Note to self, plant more bulbs for next year. Love that purple!

This Sunday I will be joining kindred stitchers at
