This is my blog for Finished Projects.
To read about the stitching process and join in with the Blog Hops I organise come over to Serendipitous Stitching (link in side bar).
In the mean time I invite you to "Come Happy Dance with me"
stitched on 28 count Platinum linen From Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament Special 2002
The fabric next to it will be the backing fabric for the ornament finish.
The original was charted so the small design in the centre was stitched over 1 on a separate piece of fabric and then put into a tiny frame attached the main design. But as I don't have a tiny frame, I stitched it direct on the fabric and added a little gold backstitched frame around it.
I changed the large coffee bean man into DMC 4130 and the coffee cups into the colours used for the leaves. Because I stitched it over one, it meant I could stitch the border over two and just do a single X instead of 4 smaller xx. It was charted to have the dark grey inbetween the orange in the border but I thought that would be too heavy and preferred it like this.
