Erica Michaels Alphabet Samplers A & B

I finally stitched some of the ABC samplers from Erica Michaels. I love these patterns. I especially love the idea of completing all of them as a book. I am very excited about completing the entire collection. I stitched the first two this week. I plan to complete the rest over the next few months. Also, I changed the threads quite a bit. I am using different threads for each, letting the creative juices flow. So far, I like the effect.

Father Winter Ornament

Isn't this beautiful?! I wanted to stitch something on this particular fabric from Silkweaver. Teresa Wentzler's Father Winter Ornament is a pretty and quick stitch, but the colors didn't match the fabric. Sharon convinced me to change the colors to match the fabric. I think we did a great job selecting the colors. Now I need to finish it as an ornament.

Mirabilia Christmas Elf Fairy is complete

I completed the Christmas Elf Fairy tonight. It is beautiful. I stitched it on a piece of hand-dyed fabric I received from Silkweaver in one of my Fabric of the Month Club shipments. Love that fabric.
