You've Come A Long Way Baby!



When searching through my stash a while back, I came across this ornament I stitched way back in the early 90's when I first took it seriously. It was a free ornament kit you could get just by writing to DMC and requesting one. Curious as to how my stitching has changed over the years, I scrutinized the front. All stitches lay the same way, neat and orderly - Yes. Doesn't look bad, does it?



Then I turned it over to review the back side. Notice all the threads being carried? The good thing is that they weren't carried very far. If I were to stitch it again, I'd more than likely weave the threads under existing stitches. My-oh-my, how times have changed!



And finally after all this time, here is the finished ornament! (Does this count as my second finish of August?)

How cool to find something from when you first started stitching. I have some ornaments like that but I'm afraid to look at the backs of them. LOL Congrats on getting it finished into an ornament. It looks great!
