Almost Forgotten!


In all my excitement to meet with my VS Cyberstitchers group, as well as getting DH and DS off to Japan, I neglected to post a pic of the 2002 Shepherd's Bush Christmas ornie that I finished last month. I'm stitching them all on one piece of fabric using the DMC conversion in the magazines. To be honest, some of the chosen color conversions are not what I would have chosen and some are not even close to the overdye colors. But I'm just going to go with it, unless the color is too jarring, as was the case with some of the colors in the 2001 ornie.


Here are the three ornaments together. Soon I'll get going on the 2003 ornament.




Today my grandsons are here for most of the afternoon and evening. My SAGA meeting was postponed to next week, so I won't have to rush out of here right after dinner. Think I'll try to round up the Convent Garden threads and pattern!

The ornaments are lovely Von, I was thinking about stitching then this year. I think out of all the magazines, I am only missing one year.

Those SB ornaments are looking great - and I like the idea of stitching them on one piece of fabric!

Love your SB ornaments Von! I think they look wonderful on one piece of fabric. Are you using the recommended fabric or something different?

Oh, I love those Shepherd Bush ornies, and it's such a good idea to match them up on a single fabric! I'll definitely have to stitch one or two for next Christmas :)

Have e great weekend! :)

Von, I love how this is turning out. You're going to stitch up to 2005? Great idea to put them all together on one fabric.

Very nice Von! I like the idea of doing them all on one piece of fabric. I can't wait to see the next one.

Your SB ornies look fantastic!! I am surprised that the DMC conversion is not very good (it looks fine to me, but going by what you say) - hmmm....

I love the SB ornaments. I stitch one each year for Christmas for a friend at work - she loves them! I agree with the others that doing it all on one piece of fabric is a really nice idea. What are you doing about the charms? I've left them off to date; will you do the same?

I love these ornies! I hadn't really noticed them before, but the fact that you and Connie were stitching it drew my attention. I will certainly stitch them as well, thinking of you!
Take care!
