Second Finish of 2018

I actually finished stitching this project at the end of 2017, but recently created the FFO (fully finished object).

This...


'Let It Snow' kit #021-1058 Janlynn Designs for the Needle.  I swapped the 18ct aida for 28ct White Linen and stitched away.


Then I added This...


When I went to visit my second mama at Christmas last year, we went shopping at AC Moore.  These sleds were on clearance so we both scooped up a bunch.  Factory Direct Craft also sells these same ones, if anyone is interested.

A little this and a little that, equals this:



Design:  Let It Snow
Designer: Janlynn Designs for the Needle
Kit:  021-1058
Fabric:  28ct White Linen
Fibers:  Cotton Threads from Kit
Embellishments:  Handmade Cording, Snowflake Buttons

Stitching Lotus Smalls SAL
Super Mom Stitchery Link Party #138 

Until next time....

What a sweet finish, Meari! I have the sleds but have never attempted to finish a design this way -- maybe someday. : )

Carol said...

Oh, that little sled is darling, Meari! I love how the colors show up so well on the white sled--much better than those brown colored one :) Did you spray paint it or just use acrylic craft paints? Very nice job!

Thank you for visiting my blog .

Wow the way you finished the design is beyond my imagination.
I always thought of these small kits as made for beginners and they look bulky when finished.But you changed the whole outcome.

CathieJ said...

What a wonderful finish idea. I have painted these sleds, but I never thought to add a cross-stitch. This is so pretty.
