Fa La La

My first small project finished for 2010.

This is the December ornament from the LHN series. The project called for 28 ct. cappucino linen. It seemed too large for an ornament, so I did it on 32 count linen which I hand dyed to look like cappucino. Unfortunately I still feel that it is too large. I should have done it on 40 count linen. I wrote to the LHN company and asked that the future ornaments be a little smaller. I don’t know if they will consider it or not, after all…who am I?! I added a strand of irridescent balger to the white snow parts and to the FaLaLa and then did the fur on the dresses with Whisper White to make it look more like fur. It was fun. I’d really like to make another one on 40 ct. fabric.

I am working on the second ornament of the series…this time done on a smaller count fabric. I will post it soon. Computer time is far and few between these days and am having a hard time getting photographs and posting done.

A bientot, Averyclaire
