I’m linking up with Rachel the Ten Hour Stitcher for the last Fully Finished Object Gallery of 2020! I was not sure I could get any of my pieces FFO’d this month so anything counts as a triumph!
First, of course I HAD to do my daughter’s rocking horse ornament. Here it is on the tree.
Oof. This was the most ridiculous finish I have ever made with that open shape between the legs and the turkey work mane. I had to ladder stitch that space closed, all stuffed, with the fabric unraveling , the stuffing trying to escape everywhere, my big ole fingers trying to hold it all together. I needed an extra hand! I ruined quite a few good pins! Yikes. And my fingers were SORE!
Then I made up my La D Da drum. It was not so hard, just took a little “doing.”
The Holly Pin is from Just Another Button Co. I couldn’t resist it!
And finally, I can take no credit for this, but here is my framed Heirloom Nativity from The Victoria Sampler.
I did finish it last year, but waited to frame it until things settled down this year. It was a little early Christmas gift to myself. Sandy at The Attic got it done very quickly for me so I could display it at Christmas. Didn’t she do a wonderful job? I love how the floral scrolls and diamond pattern in the frame echoes the whitework in the lacey bands. I love how the red fabric behind the hardanger is the very perfect shade of red. I love everything about it. It truly is an heirloom! I would like to stitch the Heirloom Christmas one as well-the one with the Christmas tree on top. I think it is a bit shorter but just as pretty. I will have to look into that.
Once more this year, THANK YOU to Rachel for hosting this fantastic SAL. I appreciate the opportunity to share my FFOS so much, and for you all coming to see them!
